COVID-19 Update

During this unprecedented time, JFF is fortunate to be able to continue recruiting, hiring, and onboarding talent in pursuit of our New Horizons vision. Like so many, our team is working from home and will continue to do so until it is safe to return to our offices. For open positions during this period, we will conduct all interviews virtually, and we will manage onboarding for new hires virtually as well, to ensure the safety of our staff, candidates, and new hires. Each open position we post is associated with a JFF office, and we expect that new hires will work out of the JFF office associated with the position for which they were hired once we are able to do so. JFF is committed to remaining nimble as our team and candidates navigate these new circumstances together, and we are eager to continue identifying and bringing on board the talent we need to fulfill our mission of economic advancement for all. Thank you for your interest in JFF.
