The Office of Attorney General Keith Ellison — one of Minnesota’s largest public law offices and recently recognized as a Star Tribune 2021 Top Workplace — has a clear mission: we help Minnesotans afford their lives and live with dignity, safety, and respect. We are a dynamic group of dedicated professionals who could all work elsewhere but choose public service as a calling, and we are actively building an internal culture that supports that calling.

This position is a rare opportunity to be a part of a committed team of Minnesota Attorney General professionals whose common mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of Minnesotans from all backgrounds and requires dynamic individuals with excellent organizational and communication skills, as well as the ability to work creatively and collaboratively.
