The Partnership for Public Service is a dynamic nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation of Americans into federal service and by transforming the way government works.
The Partnership strives to be an inclusive organization that fosters learning, collaboration and respect. We actively recruit for diversity in our workplace, believing that a range of backgrounds, perspectives and experiences contributes to our mission of revitalizing government.
We believe that good organizations start with good people. We strive for excellence, as one team, in pursuit of our mission. Our values guide how we achieve success for the Partnership and our partners:
Passion for public service and our work toward a more effective government
People who promote a culture of learning, leadership, collaboration, inclusion and respect
Promise to be trustworthy, nonpartisan and fiscally responsible
Persistence to drive change, take strategic risks and deliver results
If people are going to devote their time and energy to an organization, they want to believe in its mission. They also want to enjoy going to work, and find meaning and satisfaction in what they do each day.
When it comes to the Partnership: check, check and check.
The Partnership has one mission: to make government more effective. Our government must bring in the best people and cultivate an environment for them to do their best work. The same applies to our organization.
We offer employees opportunities to develop skills, advance their careers and do good in the world. We also look to our staff to help shape our organization’s culture—one that strives for excellence and promotes respect for one another.
The Partnership recognizes hard work, and values the unique contributions of everyone here, encouraging ideas from interns and new employees as well as from our senior staff.
How typical is it in other organizations for entry-level employees to present key initiatives to government leaders? Or for team vice presidents to be in the rotation for cleaning the kitchen after “bagel Monday” and the Friday snack?
Here, it’s all part of the culture.
So come join our organization and be a part of the Partnership family.

This is a unique opportunity for a federal acquisition expert. Instead of writing RFPs, RFQs, and RFIs, you will have the chance to work on a team drafting responses. This change in perspective will strengthen your skill set and make you an overall better writer and reviewer. You will act as the Partnership’s in-house expert in federal acquisition. This positioning will provide you with coaching and training opportunities not always available in current federal procurement positions. The Partnership will also draw upon your expertise and make you a key member of our team that manages our Leadership Excellence in Acquisition (LEAP) Program. Working on LEAP will provide you with exposure to program management and curriculum development. You will have the opportunity to write content, directly support our participants, and network with other procurement professionals across government.
The Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition and the Ready to Govern program are intended to ensure a smooth and safe transfer of power between presidential administrations, maximize a new administration’s capacity to manage government challenges, and prepare senior appointees to step into office ready to lead effectively. The Center for Presidential Transition Publication and Resource Library serves as a growing generator and repository of data and documents from presidential transitions, and currently has over 400 items on the digital platform available to the public, along with many other items that have not been published. The collection continues to grow since the 2016-2017 transition from the Obama to the Trump administration. The Partnership seeks to create a consistent approach to the collection, storage and retrieval of material and documents and to make those materials searchable and accessible for internal and external users. This assignment requires a commitment of three to six months. The ideal candidate will be a collaborative, flexible and positive team player who is able to thrive in changing environments and demonstrates a commitment to public service and the mission of the Partnership.
