About Peace Corps

Come work alongside motivated and engaged employees who are passionate about the Peace Corps' mission of promoting peace and friendship. The Peace Corps provides professional development opportunities, fosters a diverse and inclusive workplace, and supports work-life balance. Be part of a team that supports volunteers and host communities across the globe. These positions allow Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) and certain Returned Peace Corps Response Volunteers (RPCRV) the opportunity to gain experience in the Federal Government while continuing to support the Peace Corps mission. Applicants will be placed in entry level positions across the agency supporting domestic and/or overseas operations.


These entry level positions will grant individuals who have recently completed volunteer service the opportunity for further professional development through a career in public service. Many of the positions will require the performance of assignments that are designed to further develop applicable analytical and evaluative skills and techniques beyond those gained in their prior volunteer service. Although these are growth opportunities, promotions are based on individual performance and are not guaranteed. Applicants will be asked to identify prefered job categories, including communications, contract management, country desk unit operations, data management and analysis, finance/budget, administrative support, health services, human resources, information technology, training administration, and volunteer recruitment. You may select more than one job category of interest; however, you may be placed depending on the needs of individual Peace Corps offices.


ONLY OPEN TO: Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) and Returned Peace Corps Response Volunteers (RPCRV) with active Peace Corps Eligibility (PCE). Applicants must be United States Citizens.
