We are Work For Progress, and we are looking for a Recruiter to help us identify our next leaders so we can have the biggest impact on issues like global warming, getting big money out of politics, and protecting our water, air, and public health.

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 the majority 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.

If you are the kind of person who is ready to work to recruit our next leaders to fight climate change, stop the over use of antibiotics, or work for clean water, then you should apply to Work For Progress.
