Careers

We believe in collective action and putting people first. Having staff, volunteers and supportive community members who represent diverse backgrounds and experiences results in better service to our communities. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive work environment where everyone can be their true and authentic selves.

We particularly encourage Black and Indigenous people, and other People of Color, members of the LGBTQIA communities and people with lived experience to apply and join our team. We look forward to your application!

Committed to Racial Equity


Because of structural and systemic racism, we must face these root causes and racist systems that created these disparities head on. This work is a big part of every team member’s role at United Way, and a variety of internal and external committees and working groups have been created with the goal of having a place for every employee to contribute to this work.

Vaccine Policy


In support of a safe work environment and to supplement our existing communicable disease policy, United Way of King County requires all staff members to receive a COVID-19 vaccination unless a reasonable accommodation is granted for health or religious reasons.

We are an equal employment opportunity employer

All qualified applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Research shows that women and members of structurally marginalized groups often only apply if they have met all of the qualifications of the job, but in our experience, no one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. United Way encourages you to apply if you’re interested! We look forward to your application.
