After hiring a manager earlier in the year, mega law firm Jones Day is now after a London-based coordinator to support the firm’s directories efforts.
The coordinator will support all aspects of creating, developing, and facilitating the completion of submissions to lawyer directories such as Chambers and Legal 500, as well as select lists, rankings, and awards published by news organizations and other publications.
The job description says:
“The Recognition & Awards Coordinator is responsible for improving the standardization of submissions that communicate the Firm’s capabilities with the objective of increasing the rankings, visibility, and recognition earned for the Firm and its lawyers; tracking, organizing, and maintaining a global calendar of deadlines related to submissions for legal directories and awards, as well as coordinating interviews and drafting biography updates; ensuring editorial integrity and quality in lawyer directory submissions – consistent with best practices – to optimize rankings; and analyzing results, performance, year-on-year trends, and communicating the results for internal and external audiences as applicable.”
Ideally the person will have experience producing submissions for Chambers and Legal 500 and other lists and awards – either from within a legal directory environment in a research or editorial capacity, and/or within a legal or professional services environment working with practices in a business development, marketing, or communications role.
