HIAS Pennsylvania is hiring! We’re seeking experienced and entry level attorneys as well as non-attorneys to join our enthusiastic, collegial team. If doing meaningful work in a dynamic field isn’t enough of a reason to apply, here are a few more reasons that make HIAS PA a great place to work:

  1. We’ve been around since 1882;
  2. In addition to a generous number of paid vacation days, federal holidays, and personal days, we have the added perk of paid time off for Jewish holidays and 6 floating holidays of your choice;
  3. For all the foodies out there, we host the best office potlucks and there’s never a shortage of delicious goodies sitting next to the copy machine;
  4. And after eating all the goodies, you can join in on our monthly office yoga;
  5. We value self-care. The last staff meeting of each month is dedicated to wellness and team building activities such as board games and hoola-hoop dancing. We also have a yearly Fun Day each summer;

  7. We have a monthly book club;
  8. We’re a fish friendly office and desktop aquariums are welcome.

And for those living out of the area and wondering if you should relocate to Philadelphia, the answer is YES! Here are some reasons why Philly is awesome:

  1. It’s the birthplace of our nation;
  2. It’s the unofficial mural capital of the world;
  3. It’s home to the cheesesteak, Rocky, Mummers parade, and the 2018 NFL champions;
  4. It’s conveniently located a short train ride away from NYC, DC, the Jersey Shore, and tax free shopping in Delaware;
