Come work with us! COIB is an independent City agency that fights corruption and promotes integrity in City government by teaching, interpreting, and enforcing the City’s conflicts of interest law. By providing legal advice and ethics training to all City employees and by prosecuting violations of the law, COIB upholds the good government standards in the City’s conflicts of interest law and helps City employees avoid conflicts of interest.
The Deputy Director of Enforcement will play a critical role in holding New York City public servants accountable for violating the City’s conflicts of interest law. In addition to handling some of the most challenging enforcement cases—involving complicated fact patterns and high-level officials—the Deputy Director will also work closely with the Director of Enforcement to manage the work of the Enforcement Unit’s junior attorneys. This is an ideal position for an experienced attorney interested in prosecuting cases with a wide degree of independence, learning more about the workings of New York City government, and gaining managerial experience.
The Confidential Investigator will be a member of the COIB legal team, working primarily with the Legal Advice Unit as well as the Enforcement Unit and the Special Counsel, as needed. As part of the COIB legal team, the Confidential Investigator will perform the duties of a paralegal, working closely with COIB attorneys as well as performing legal work independently including: reviewing requests for public servants to engage in outside employment, drafting responses to these requests for review and approval by the Board Chair, assisting in the administration of the City’s affiliated not-for-profit organizations law, and performing routine administrative duties. This is an excellent opportunity for someone considering law school or a career in law.
