NEA Is a Great Place To Work

The National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States.

Working Mother magazine has named the National Education Association as one of its 100 best companies for family-friendly benefits.

More than 58 percent of NEA's workforce of roughly 500 employees at its Washington, D.C. headquarters is female. NEA offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes a variety of paid health and dental insurance options; paid maternity and parental leave for newborns and newly adopted children; up to five days each year for parents and grandparents to participate in a student's school activities; back-up childcare; telecommuting; and flexible work schedules.

Positions at NEA include executive, managerial, professional, technical, administrative/clerical and trades/crafts. Vacancies may involve skills in communications/media relations, information technology, education policy analysis, research, lobbying/political advocacy or administrative support and office administration.

NEA complies with all federal, state and local employment laws including the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) and the American with Disabilities Act. New hires must show proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States on or before the first day of employment as required by IRCA.
