Community Engagement Coordinator for a Super Cool Law Firm in Brooklyn

Crumiller P.C. is a feminist litigation firm dedicated to fighting discrimination in the workplace and beyond. We represent employees in all matters; represent victims of sexual assault and harassment; and represent women and nonbinary patients who have experienced discrimination in medical treatment. The most important thing is that you are nice, and secondly, that you are sharp. We like to think and move fast, and we need people who can keep up. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are paramount. We go overboard to keep clients in the loop, and we are a positive, collaborative team. The firm’s Founding Attorney is a proud feminist, progressive, working mom, and our work is driven by our passion. If you can’t get on board with that, then we probably won’t be a good fit.

We are hiring a full-time Community Engagement Assistant. There is no shortage of people in need of the firm’s services & we are looking to increase our ability to reach the people who need us most. You will work closely with our Marketing & PR Coordinator to support & maintain an active presence on all of the firm’s social media channels, research opportunities for the firm to increase community involvement, and draft/update visual, written, and print assets. You will also take an active role in ongoing communications with former clients.

Any interested BIPOC & LGBTQ candidates are especially encouraged to apply.”
