Legal Recruiter

  • Job Tag: #LI-SR

SkyWater Search Partners is currently looking to add another Legal Recruiter to the team in Minneapolis.

If you are considering using your J.D. in another way, this may be the perfect opportunity to stay immersed in the legal field without practicing law. This role allows you to be an entrepreneur and build a book of business!  Our Recruiters receive an extremely competitive base salary + commission structure, with unlimited earning potential.

As an Attorney Recruiter you will be responsible for helping drive the continued growth of our Legal practice by specializing in the placement of full-time attorneys and legal professionals within law firms and legal departments throughout the country.

SkyWater Search Partners has been rated the #1 search firm in Minnesota for the past 6 years in a row by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. We place more people in professional full-time positions than any other Minnesota-based search firm.

In addition, we have won 9 Best Place to Work Awards, as voted by our employees, in both the Minnesota Business Magazine, as well as the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Outside of our professional rankings, we also offer an amazing corporate culture, Grade A office space with a gym, covered parking, Starbucks onsite, and everyone in our organization runs a desk! We do not believe in metrics (we don’t care how many phone calls you make or how many meetings you have per week), we only care about results! We enjoy cultivating relationships and being the best talent finders for our clients!!

If you are interested in this position or would like to hear more about our firm, please apply online or reach out to Sujatha Ramanathan directly at
