The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. Among our core priorities, we fight to protect voting rights, end mass incarceration, strengthen checks and balances, and preserve Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting-edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them — in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
We are hiring an Accounting Clerk to manage all accounting processes for the organization including AR/AP input, GL reconciliation, and month end close. The ideal candidate will combine a solid understanding of basic bookkeeping and accounts payable principles, with strong analytical and problem-solving skills. S/he should be highly organized and detail-oriented and possess the ability to effectively work both independently or in a team setting. The Accounting Clerk will report to the Staff Accountant as a member of our three person Finance/Accounting team.
