Associate Development Manager (Palo Alto Corporate)

Cooley is seeking an Associate Development Manager to join a growing team focused on the development and retention of associates through the work allocation process. Your role will be to help associates build their careers at the firm by ensuring they receive broad exposure to a variety of matters, clients, teams, and skill-building experiences and guide them to success by collecting and delivering robust real-time and annual feedback.

You will work closely with the group’s leadership to establish a culture of mentoring and training, integrate new hires, load balance, promote diversity, and build a sense of team. Your role will be relational, as you connect with associates about their development goals, connect with partners about business needs, and generate buy-in for staffing decisions that take these and other factors - diversity, equity, and talent development - into account. Equally as important, your role will be analytical, as you track data and utilization metrics to inform your staffing decisions and evaluate the outcomes. Staffing in a busy practice within a growing global firm is truly an art form, so we are looking for a high-energy professional with strong EQ, commitment to client service, a coaching mindset and team orientation. If you are passionate about helping attorneys grow their careers, we would love to speak with you!
