Lilja - Communications Associate



Do you spot typos on your friends’ Facebook posts? Do you find yourself correcting other people’s grammar? Do you reject spin and embrace authenticity? Do you appreciate a well-crafted story in a world of one-liners? Are you a consummate planner? We would like to meet you!

We’re looking for a full-time communications associate to join the Lilja Communications team. A snapshot of your responsibilities includes drafting news releases, articles and other materials, proofing and editing with your eagle eye, monitoring media, managing timelines and tracking projects, including our LifeStories books, and managing day-to-day client needs.

We’re a boutique communications firm with a passion for authentic storytelling and a reputation for quality, concise communications. Our expertise lies in shaping, producing and sharing compelling stories for businesses, nonprofits, foundations, families and individuals.

Our eclectic client roster is comprised of beloved Twin Cities organizations and nationally recognized brands. From fascinating foundations to sustainably minded businesses, they are a delight to work for and we have fun in the process!

We also have a soft spot for the book business. Our LifeStories work includes writing, producing and marketing books that range from personal and business histories to colorful and creative children’s books.

The ideal candidate will have a background in communications, journalism or public relations, along with one to two years of experience working in the field. Strong editing, proofreading and project management skills are a must. Experience with social media, SEO, design and HTML coding is a plus!

Requirements for the job include strong writing, editing and proofreading skills, attention to detail, project management skills, and the ability to prioritize work, multi-task and be flexible. Extra points if you can discern the difference between Chicago and AP style.
