Ballard Spahr, a multi-practice, national law firm, is in search of a skilled, creative writer who can draft original content, edit copy written by lawyers and staff, and manage our social media platforms. We are looking for a professional writer with business acumen, an intellectually curious self-starter capable of digesting complex subject matter and transforming it into compelling, useful prose with speed and accuracy. On the social media side, candidates should have experience creating and managing corporate accounts on various social media platforms, understand best practices for emerging media, and be inspiring and articulate presenters.

The selected individual must be detail-oriented, able to successfully manage multiple projects and daily deadlines, and possess the ability to translate complex subject matter into accurate, concise, readable copy for a broad but educated market. Must have an understanding of current events, a passion for writing, and an eagerness to learn. A background in print journalism, particularly covering the courts and/or business beats, is preferred. Strong organizational and interpersonal skills are a must.

Five or more years of writing and/or professional marketing communications experience, demonstrated writing ability, and a superior command of grammar, spelling, and usage.
