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.


To support this important work, JFF employs a diverse group of talented, highly motivated, and driven professionals—each one dedicated to our mission and capable of thriving in the fast-paced environment.

Equal Employment Opportunity Policy Statement

On behalf of JFF, this is a statement of intention to make all reasonable efforts to live up to its Equal Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action Plan. The Plan has been prepared to accurately reflect the company's current status, its actions to date, and its intentions for the future. The President and CEO supports the Affirmative Action Program and assigns overall responsibility for fulfillment of the Equal Employment Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action Plan to Jennifer Anderson, Vice President of People and Culture, who will periodically conduct analyses of all personnel actions to ensure that the company is living up to its stated intention.

The management of the company is responsible for the ongoing monitoring of all personnel actions in their respective areas of supervision, and will carry out the intentions of the Equal Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action Plan to the fullest extent possible.

Employment practices at the company are non-discriminatory and are based upon factors that are job-related. Factors such as race, color, religion, gender, national origin or ancestry, disability, veteran status, military service, age, sexual orientation, genetic information, and gender identity are not job-related. The Affirmative Action Plan is designed to report and monitor all related procedures that will include, but will not be limited to:

  1. Recruiting, hiring, training, and promoting applicants and employees in all job classifications without discrimination;
  2. Basing decisions on employment so as to further the principle of equal employment opportunity;
  3. Ensuring that promotion decisions are in accord with principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements for promotional opportunities; and
  4. Ensuring that all other personnel actions, such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoffs, company-sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, will be administered without discrimination.

JFF promises not to retaliate against any person who files a complaint concerning Equal Opportunity or Affirmative Action and will ensure that no one harasses, intimidates, threatens, coerces, or discriminates against any individual exercising rights under this policy.

The Persons with Disabilities and Veterans Affirmative Action Plan is available for inspection in the Human Resources Department during normal business hours. Please contact the Vice President of People and Culture for further information.

Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision

However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by JFF, or (c) consistent with JFF’s legal duty to furnish information. 41 CFR 60-1.35 (c)
