Join the Free OpenGovJobs Google Group

If you are interested in finding or sharing a job announcement concerning government openness and accountability, consider joining the OpenGovJobs Google group. There is no cost for membership and the names of members are never shared publicly.

Created in July 2014, one year later the list grew to 400 members, and as of April 2017 is has more than 900 members. Participants include employers who wish to share job announcements, prospective employees, and anyone else who might be interested. 

All are encouraged to send job announcements to the list. The jobs can be at non-profits, for-profits, in government, or elsewhere, and include work at the federal, state, local, and international levels. The types of jobs can range from policy advocacy to fundraising, technology to communications, organization to operations, and more. If you have any questions about whether a job would fit, let me know, but please err on the side of inclusiveness. (Also, don't worry about whether it's a duplicate.) The list works best when people send in announcements.

If you have a job to share but do not wish to send it out yourself, send me a private email or contact me through Twitter.

As of July 2016, we now have a public-facing twitter account for open government jobs, at twitter.com/opengovjobs (although I don't use it all that often).

Please feel encouraged to invite others to join the group. We have members from around the world, at all stages in their career, and in many different job types.
