Life looks very different at Goodwill of Central Iowa (GCI) these days, as it does for everyone. We’re altering almost all of our usual practices to ensure that everyone stays healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even so, our vision remains the same: Creating purpose through the power of work. One way we continue to do this is by providing job opportunities within our organization. We took a brief pause, but we’re once again taking your applications and hoping that you can be a great addition to our team.


Our employees have the opportunity to make an incredible impact on the community. Our retail stores provide about 80% of our funding for mission services, which helps people with barriers to employment earn and keep jobs in our community. With unemployment soaring, our work is more important than ever. You can be sure that the work you’re doing directly impacts the services we provide to central Iowans.
