Peace Corps Vacancy Announcements

There are a wide variety of activities going on at the Peace Corps domestically. In addition to recruiting our Volunteers, we need people to place them in the field according to expertise, screen them for medical clearances, provide research and evaluation services, provide financial services for all of our posts, ensure the Peace Corps is appropriately staffed, keep computer systems running throughout the world, and make sure our building remains open.

As a government agency, the Peace Corps has some offices that can be found in most organizations, such as Administrative Services, Budgeting & Financial Services, Communications, Contracts, General Counsel, Human Resources, Information Resources, and Inspector General. Positions in these offices are similar to those found in like offices throughout the government or private industry.

In addition, the Peace Corps has offices that are agency specific—organized around our volunteers. These offices are: Volunteer Recruitment and Selection which includes University Programs and Minority Recruitment; Volunteer Support which includes Medical Services; Returned Volunteer Services, World Wise Schools, and Peace Corps Fellows; Office of Private Sector Relations and International Volunteerism; Peace Corps Response; and Center for Field Assistance & Applied Research. Positions in these offices have a wide range of functions, some similar to positions found in non-governmental organizations or government agencies such as USAID.

All vacancy announcements for headquarters positions are posted on this web site. Please send one application for each vacancy announcement to which you want to apply.

The Peace Corps provides reasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities.
