Position Description:
The National Coalition for Worker Justice (NCWJ) is a network of over 400 worker organizations across the country that are brought together by common interest, solidarity, a shared policy agenda, and the demand of meaningful engagement and accountability on workers’ rights by the Biden-Harris administration.

The Steering Committee – the National Employment Law Project (NELP), Northwest Workers’ Justice Project (NWJP), National Legal Advocacy Network (NLAN), Workplace Fairness, and the Rutgers Workplace Justice Lab – is the decision-making body for the Coalition. The Steering Committee has decided that a Coordinator is needed to coordinate the routine operations of the Coalition in a manner that fosters meaningful participation by community organizations and their worker members, as well as from other members.

The position will be based at the National Legal Advocacy Network though work can be done from any location. This is a six-month, part-time position that has the possibility of transitioning into a full-time and/or permanent position.

  • Excellent meeting facilitation skills;
  • Familiarity with policy advocacy and government agencies;
