JoAnne Peppiatt


JoAnne has specialized in placing law firm managers, Paralegals and Legal Administrative Assistants since 2007. She is passionate about legal recruitment and well-connected in the legal community. JoAnne has built a reputation for taking the time to understand the needs of both her candidates seeking to move and her clients seeking to hire, making every effort to secure the right fit. She is respected for her supportive nature, industry knowledge, professionalism, and commitment to success. Originally from Ontario, JoAnne graduated with honours from the Legal Administration/Law Clerk Diploma program at Durham College. After a few years working as a Law Clerk at a prestigious downtown Toronto law firm, she set off in search of adventure. She and two friends drove across Canada landing in Whistler, BC where she learned to snowboard and worked in real estate. However, JoAnne found her passion in legal recruitment. Leaving Whistler for Vancouver, she established herself as one of the leading recruiters in Western Canada. When she is not working, she is likely enjoying the outdoors with her family or spending some hard-earned quiet time doing yoga or pilates.

I’ve had great Recruiters in the past, but none of them provided me with opportunities everyday like you did, JoAnne. I felt like you understood exactly what I wanted in my next position, and you were determined to find it for me. I can’t thank you enough for your support through the process as well. You are fantastic at what you do, and I couldn’t be happier with the service you provided me. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

My experience with Hunter West was exceptional! I reached out to Hunter West with no expectations, since I didn’t have any formal education in the legal field. JoAnne was calm and patient. She gave me positive feedback and she worked hard to get me interviews. She was a great advocate for me, highlighting my work experience when I lacked in other areas. I have worked with other agencies, and feel that Hunter West is great! I like how it is specialized, so you don’t have to filter through various jobs across different industries. I will definitely use Hunter West again if I ever intend to look elsewhere within the legal field. I would also recommend the services of Hunter West to others who are thinking the same.

From the moment I walked in the doors of the beautiful office at Hunter West and was warmly welcomed by JoAnne, I was reassured I could find the position I was looking for. I was given excellent information and suggestions and JoAnne's attitude, knowledge of the industry, and confidence gave me confidence. JoAnne made clear she understood the needs of her clients, and acted extremely quickly to find opportunities for me. For quality of service, availability, and how quickly they expedited my case, Hunter West is by far the superior agency for my needs. I recommend Hunter West to anyone in my industry looking to find the right fit for their next position. JoAnne is personable, knowledgeable, professional, and kind, and I felt supported through the entire process. Thank you again to JoAnne and Hunter West for helping to launch my career as a Legal Administrative Assistant!
