We offer a fast-paced, professional and friendly work environment for our employees. We work diligently to provide tangible relief for the people we serve, while being good stewards of the funds generously provided to us by our donors.

Completed applications are reviewed by the IJM Recruiting Team and the hiring manager.

IJM requires a background check and thorough review of references with an employment offer.

What is the office attire?

Office attire is smart business casual.

Equal Opportunity for Everyone

At IJM, we’re committed to building a diverse workforce through fair and equitable employment practices. IJM encourages people of any race, color, age, sex, marital status or political ideology to apply for employment. While we welcome everyone into this work, we truly believe that the work we are doing is God’s work, not our own, and practice spiritual disciplines together daily. That’s why we legally require under SEC. 2000e-1 [Section702] of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that all employees practice a mature orthodox Christian faith, as defined by the Apostles’ Creed.
