Full Time Corporate Records Assistant

We are currently looking to add a full time member to our corporate team.

At Digby Leigh & Company we believe there is a different way of practicing the law. We are committed to constantly seek out and implement new, better ways of doing things rather than be content with our industry’s status quo. Our desire for change drives the way we treat our clients and each other and the role we collectively play within the legal community. We’re unafraid to rethink how we work, the way we hire, and even where we work choosing to grow our firm in the vibrant community of Edgemont Village in North Vancouver.

We are an experienced law firm made up of more than just our founder and senior members. Our success depends on our entire team coming together. Our collaborative nature and transparent ways spread and breed experience amongst the Digby Leigh & Company team. To us, experience is only truly valuable if it is shared.

We are humans first and lawyers second. We believe in smiles and humanity before business and handshakes. At the end of the day, we are people helping people.

Our firm is currently seeking a full time corporate records assistant to join our growing team. The successful candidate will possess strong computer skills and embrace technology, will love organization and multi-colored post-it notes and will have relentless attention to detail and getting things right. This position requires a client service approach, a self-directed working style and an ability to prioritize and manage a high volume of work in a fast paced environment.

Above all else, we are looking for an individual who is excited about the law, generates positive energy, has a can-do, solution oriented attitude, a strong work ethic and most importantly, has passion for what they are doing.
