Our Recruitment Team

We know that there are major threats to our planet, our health and safety, and our democracy. The good news is that we have solutions. The technology exists, the legislation has been written, and majorities of people are with us on the need to solve these problems.

What we need now is the power to influence our elected officials and the leaders of corporate America to make the right decisions. And sometimes, we need to elect new officials who better represent the public interest. Work For Progress and its partners are hiring people at all levels of experience who are committed to making a difference.

We are hiring for non-profit groups that tackle these issues and have positions available in over 30 cities and states.
