Quinlan Partners ( is a global due diligence, investigations, and business intelligence firm that helps clients identify and mitigate risk, shape strategy, and achieve success. We are seeking an inquisitive, highly motivated investigator to join our team in New York as a Senior Associate.

Applicants should have at least five years of applicable professional experience in investigative or business journalism, corporate investigations, or related fields, and excel as investigative interviewers and public record/open source researchers. The strongest candidates will have prior experience in identifying and conducting interviews with sources and/or witnesses. More broadly, strong candidates will demonstrate a track record of success at obtaining, analyzing, and distilling information gathered as part of investigations into potential wrongdoing or in answering complex questions posed by corporate, investment, and legal decision-makers.

Fluency in a second language is a plus but not required. The Senior Associate role requires dogged work ethic, excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong attention to detail and intellectual curiosity, and the ability to collaborate with a team while simultaneously managing and executing multiple deadline-driven projects.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the following, among other tasks:

  • Conducting investigative interviews with human sources and witnesses for purposes of qualitative due diligence, or gathering facts and evidence in connection with disputes;
  • Conducting in-depth public record and open source investigations into people and companies by expertly navigating investigative databases and public record sources in the U.S. and around the world;
  • Drafting and editing client-ready investigative reports, and briefing senior management and clients on findings from investigations;
  • Training, mentoring and managing junior investigators on public record research and investigative interviewing techniques;
  • Efficiently managing time and juggling multiple, sometimes competing assignments and deadlines.
