Brilliant Misfits Wanted!

Toronto | Full-Time | Deadline: Feb. 10, 2018

Brilliant Misfits Wanted!

The Lavin Agency - Toronto, Ontario

We are the largest intellectual talent agency in the world. And probably the only one. We represent people who want to make the world a smarter place. And we think that’s good. Smarter people make better decisions and make the world a better place. Maybe. That’s debatable. And real debate is good. Have you stayed up all night debating politics, music, art, or the economy? A real debate where you agree about a lot, and what you disagree about is interesting? Yes? Then maybe we’re a good fit for you.
We have 35 staff and we’re growing. We’re interesting, engaged, and curious people working globally from downtown Toronto. We’re looking for 6 agents to represent some of the world's leading thinkers.
Under-qualified? The CEO didn’t finish university. Over-qualified? We’ve had our share of PhDs, MBAs and LLBs. This job is for the engaged and engaging. The curious and the opinionated. But it’s also a tough job. You must have a proven ability to deal with stress, work hard, and stay focused. You are a driven individual. Exceptional communication skills are a minimum requirement. After all, your job will be to convince people to book our clients for speaking engagements around the world, and occasionally for consulting and other work.
We provide competitive salaries, health benefits, development opportunities, weekly social affairs, birthday celebrations and a kickass workplace!
For more information about us, please visit and watch our culture video. More information about the opportunity can be found at
If you are a brilliant misfit wanting to work with big ideas that challenge big issues, express yourself to by February 10, 2018!
