Work at JFS

JFS strives to employ people who believe in its mission, vision and values and who find great reward and pride in delivering human services to people from all walks of life. Our supportive agency culture includes significant autonomy in everyone’s work, reflected in the flexibility provided in scheduling where and when employees work. We value healthy professional and personal life balance.

We encourage collaboration and engagement with one another. By working together, we boost organizational capacity, deliver better programs and outcomes, find common ground, and plant the seeds of rewarding friendships. We also offer opportunities to serve on several employee-driven committees including our diversity, equity and inclusion committee, lunch and learn committee, and activity committee. We also encourage and provide the freedom to grow personally and professionally.

JFS is dedicated to building an equitable environment and strongly encourages applications from Black, Indigenous, People of Color, women, transgender and non-binary candidates. Though we are a Jewish organization, many of our clients and employees are not Jewish and we encourage those of any (or no) faith to apply. All positions remain open until a diverse and qualified pool of candidates is identified. We know there are great candidates who may not fit into the criteria we’ve outlined here, or who have important skills we haven’t listed. If that’s you, please don’t hesitate to apply anyway and tell us about yourself.

JFS is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We honor, encourage and succeed on diversity, equity and inclusion for the benefit of our employees, volunteers and clients. All applicants will be considered for employment. JFS does not discriminate against applicants for employment on the basis of race, national, social or ethnic origin, religion or belief, sex (including pregnancy), gender identity, age, disability or any other legally protected group.
