Environmental and nonprofit jobs can be deeply rewarding but notoriously hard to find. In many cases, job seekers simply don’t know where to find them.
Fortunately, thanks to the advent of the internet, there are now job boards specifically dedicated to non-profit and environmental jobs.
In this post, we’ll take a deeper look at six of the more well known sites that can help you find a job in the nonprofit sector.
Without further ado, here are six great sites for finding non-profit and environmental work!
Idealist.org was founded as a non-profit in 1995 to help connect people with ideas.
Today, they have tens of thousands of jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities worldwide on their site. These range from entry level to director level positions.
In addition, their website has sections for events and organizations which allow job seekers to integrate in the nonprofit community or to identify and reach out to companies they are interested in joining.
Commongood Careers was founded in 2005 as a search firm for social impact firms.
Although it’s a search firm, they also have a job board for job seekers which you can find under the “Get Hired” tab under “Job Listings.”
Many of the largest and highest impact nonprofits posts jobs on the sites so it’s a great place to start your search.
Additionally, the company has a ton of job search materials you can use to help you get hired, many of which are specific to applying to non profit jobs.
Bridgespan operates a great nonprofit job board called the “Nonprofit Jobs Center.”
The board typically has several hundred positions available at any given time ranging from entry level to director level positions across the globe.
Enore.org doesn’t offer traditional job postings but has tons of great resources for nonprofit job seekers.
You can find these on the homepage by finding the “Resources” tab and in the scroll down there are a number of guides and tools! You can use these tools and guides to help you prepare for nonprofit interviews.
PND’s job board is for full-time positions for tax-exempt organizations many of which are environmental organizations or nonprofits.
PND offers jobs across the country but many of them are located in larger cities like New York, Chicago or San Francisco.
The board typically has a good selection of jobs to apply to usually a few hundred to a thousand.
Finally, Philanthropy News Digest is also a great place for job seekers to get up to date on the latest nonprofit news to prepare for their interviews or to simply quench their thirst for the latest and greatest news in the nonprofit community.
Hire Horticulture is a nonprofit and environmental job board that is specific to horticulture and landscape jobs. However, for these categories, Hire Horticulture offers a lot of positions.
If you don’t immediately find something you like, sign up for their newsletter which will keep you up to date on their latest job postings.
Bonus: Major Job Boards
In addition to nonprofit specific job boards, many major job boards now have nonprofit specific categories on their sites. These boards include Craigslist, Indeed, Monster and more.
You can find nonprofit jobs by either searching “nonprofit” or “not for profit.”
Alternatively, usually in their filtering bar, there is an option for jobs with nonprofit companies.
Finding a job with a non profit company to apply to is easier than ever.
However, if it’s your first time interviewing for a nonprofit position, consider taking some time to brush up on the language and business of nonprofits since their positions often demand different skills or different applications of your skills.
