• Advocacy, Community

We're hiring a Community and Events Coordinator!

Are you an advocacy-minded person with serious organizing skills and a passion for community? Do you have the vision to make lasting change for independent workers? Are you well-connected within the New York City creative and freelance communities?

We're looking for a Community Events Coordinator for a newly launching, New York-based training center that will provide independent workers with entrepreneurial skills. This position is full-time with benefits.

Freelancers Union, a national nonprofit organization, represents the needs and concerns of today's independent workforce through advocacy, information, and service. We offer health, life, disability, and dental insurance, as well as discounts and other resources, to freelancers, consultants, temps, part-timers, and the self-employed. We're passionate about our mission to improve working life for independent workers–a community representing 30% of the U.S. workforce–and we're the people behind all those insurance ads with the beehive that you see on the subway.

Beyond our mission, we're also passionate about and proud of the culture and work environment we've created. We believe everyone has an important contribution to make toward achieving our goals, both through collaborative teamwork and independent initiative. The atmosphere here is loose, fun, and friendly. We're collaborative, open-minded, adaptable, creative, and action-oriented. We work in a fast-paced and fun environment and we’re constantly exploring interesting new ideas.
