Successful candidates for positions in the U.S. Bank Law Division consistently provide excellent advice and guidance to clients and colleagues on a variety of legal matters. They build trusting relationships that allow the business to make well-informed decisions. Successful candidates for positions in the Law Division also work to attract, retain, and develop great people in an inclusive environment where each person is valued for the distinct skills and attributes they bring to the group. They contribute to the excellence of the Law Division through meaningful collaboration, participation in the community, and investment in the development of the department.

U.S. Bank is seeking an employment attorney to join the Bank’s Legal Department. The role requires good judgment, a commitment to building cross-functional relationships and a strong work ethic. The primary function of this role is to provide advice and counsel to human resources business partners and business line managers on a wide variety of employment law issues arising across U.S. Bank’s national footprint.

The successful candidate must be able to work independently and as part of a collaborative team, providing practical recommendations, often in real time. The ability to think on your feet and communicate under pressure is critical to success in this position. This is not a research and memo-writing position.
