Like the rest of the world, Buckeye is hiring!

Apr 21, 2022

Unlike the rest of the world, The Buckeye Institute offers the intangible psychic benefits of making a real difference and having the greatest colleagues around. Our teammates tend to stick around quite a bit longer than the average turnover rates for our industry, and we attribute that fact to hiring only the nicest and most capable folks (hey, we didn’t claim to be modest!).

We are located downtown Columbus, Ohio, directly across from the state Capitol building and in the heart of the Buckeye State’s bustling policymaking scene.

If you or someone you know is interested in any of the following positions, let us know at your earliest convenience: 1) a fairly non-stressful receptionist/office manager, 2) an experienced legal researcher/paralegal, 3) an unflappable executive assistant/scheduler, or 4) fundraising in any capacity.

We are growing and adding more people to our powerful orchestra, so even if you don’t fit one of those explicitly-stated openings, throw your hat in the ring and who knows, we might just be a mutual match. We seek genuinely good people. We can train skills. If you aren’t a policy expert and/or you lack a fancy degree, don’t be dissuaded from applying.

One caveat is that we do have a friendly office watchdog named Beckett, pictured above. He keeps a close eye on any pork spending the government tries to pull and his squeaky toys, and then alternates that hard unpaid labor with warmly greeting guests and interns with equal gusto. If you have allergies or any aversions to canines, ours might not be the best place for you to spend your days.

Buckeye offers its regular full-time employees health insurance, retirement plans, etc., as well as an environment chock full of coworkers who are happy warriors in the cause of advancing freedom and prosperity.

If you (or someone you know) are philosophically aligned with our mission (yes, darling, do your homework and read up on us) and looking for a nonprofit job where your work truly matters, we might be just what you’ve been looking for. If you are scared after discovering that we have made the right kind of enemies after more than three decades in this business, we aren’t your huckleberry—keep it moving.

If, however, you have a look around the media and our website and are indeed interested in joining our small band, tell us why you would be a good fit and what role you’d like through submitting an application here.

We absolutely cannot wait to hear from you (and the people to whom you most kindly forward this email). Feel free to tell everyone you know who is considering a career change or has an interest in this kind of profession.

Let’s get after it together—the stakes have never been higher!

p.s. Despite the pandemic, 2021 wasn’t a bad year on our scoreboard at Buckeye either. See for yourselves:
