Osgoode Society administrator sought: Nov. 15 deadline for applications
The Osgoode Society invites applications for the post of Administrator, with duties to commence in January, 2017.
The Society is a charitable organization, and its purposes are to promote public interest in the history of law, the legal profession and the judiciary and to stimulate research and publication on these subjects. It is the one of the most successful legal historical publishers in the common law world.
The administrator reports directly to the Editor-in-Chief and serves as secretary to the Board of Directors.
It is anticipated that on average the Administrator will be required to work between 3.5 and 4 days a week. The duties of the Administrator will include managing the day to day operations of the Society which are located in Osgoode Hall on Queen Street.
The Administrator will be responsible for all significant tasks and events undertaken by the Society during the year, including duties in connection with the Society’s publishing and Oral History Programs. The Administrator will work with the Editor-in-Chief and the Oral History Co-ordinator, whose offices are not located in Osgoode Hall. The Administrator must therefore be able to work successfully without direct supervision.
The successful candidate will be fully conversant with all aspects of basic word processing and other computer databases and programs. A post-secondary degree is a minimum requirement but there is no particular prior work experience required.
This is a great opportunity for a person looking to achieve a greater work-life balance while still completing challenging work related to law, history and publishing.

If you are interested in exploring this opportunity please provide a cover letter and a copy of your resume to Professor Jim Phillips, Faculty of Law & Department of History, University of Toronto, 78 Queen’s Park, Toronto, M5S 2C5, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered starting November 15th.
