Work should be so much more than just a job you do to earn a paycheque. And at SGI Canada, it is.

We offer the essentials – a competitive salary, great pension, and excellent employer-paid family benefits. But we also provide opportunities. The opportunity to do work that makes a difference in your community. The opportunity to expand your professional skills and grow your career. And the opportunity to come to work every day to a job you’re passionate about and that leaves you feeling happy and fulfilled.

Now that we’ve (hopefully!) sparked your interest, here’s some good news: we’re hiring!

We’re looking for a Legal Counsel to join our team. In this position you will provide legal opinions and conduct litigation for cases of moderate complexity for SGI and its regional operations.

We hope you consider applying if you:

  • Have a passion for practicing law in the insurance industry.
  • Are interested in being a part of something new with our recently developed Calgary branch.
  • Want to leverage your leadership skills for good – like actively supporting SGI’s culture, expanding your own learning and supporting your colleagues as they do the same.

The requirements for this role include a degree in Law, 5-10 years’ experience in the general practice of law with a focus on insurance defense litigation, and you have been called to the bar in the applicable jurisdiction. We know that confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way, so please don't hesitate to apply. We'd love to hear from you!

What else do we offer?

Our website gives a run-down of the many perks of working with us, including:

  • Personal development
    We invest in our employees. We provide leadership and employee training, and provide education funding, to support your self-improvement goals and keep our teams thriving.
  • A positive, healthy work culture
    Work culture can be the reason an employee stays or leaves a job. At SGI Canada, we’ve worked hard to develop a culture we’re proud of. And we continue to invest in our culture through training to make sure that our actions (and culture) reflect our corporate values: caring, passion, innovation, and integrity.   
  • Awesome people
    Seriously. We hire the best people, and you get to work with them. At SGI Canada, you’ll find the work family you didn’t know you needed.

We strive to be the kind of employer that employees recommend to a friend. We want our employees to want to come to work, and we look forward to your application!
