Welcome to the JAMS Career Center!
As an innovative leader within the ADR and legal communities, JAMS is a special and unique place to work. Since we opened our doors in 1979, we have been leading the way for others in the field of dispute resolution. Our success is because of the collaboration and team work of everyone at JAMS, including our employee associates.
JAMS offers career opportunities in more than 20 Resolution Centers nationwide. At JAMS, we take pride in a strong sense of collegiality and collaboration throughout all levels of the JAMS organization. Our employee associates work in partnership with our neutrals (mediators and arbitrators) to provide clients with unparalleled service. In addition to providing the highest quality dispute resolution services to our clients, we believe in helping our communities through JAMS public service programs like the non-profit JAMS Foundation and the JAMS Society.
A Great Place to Work
The success of our business relies heavily on the quality of our people. JAMS looks to attract, train, develop and retain the most competent, productive professionals in order to maintain our status as the leading ADR provider in the industry. To accomplish this, we focus on the relationship between the Company and the individuals who are a part of it. We realize that maintaining good relations with our associates is a key factor in keeping them satisfied and keeping them, period.
We strive to provide guidance, motivation, tools, systems, processes and procedures for our associates so they may perform their jobs in an efficient and effective manner, while at the same time maintaining work/life balance. Our goal with such efforts is to maintain and continue to increase associate satisfaction each and every year. We know we’re succeeding, because our associates tell us so.
JAMS regularly surveys its associates (via an independent consulting firm) on their satisfaction in a number of areas, with results measured on a scale of 1 to 10. An 8 or higher is considered “outstanding.” In our most recent survey, JAMS was rated outstanding on:
- Overall satisfaction
- I like my co-workers
- JAMS has high standards
- I am proud to say I work here
JAMS Associates Are Important!
All associates contribute to our remarkable track record by the great service they provide to each other as well as our clients and panelists. Without our associates, we would not be able to continue the great success that the Company has been able to achieve. Our associates are the "back-bone" of the organization that allow us to provide a client experience that brings clients back to JAMS.
