About FUSE

FUSE Corps is a national nonprofit that enables local government to more effectively address the most pressing challenges facing urban communities. In pursuit of this mission, FUSE runs an executive-level fellowship program in civic innovation that is focused on accelerating cross-sector collaboration and community-based problem-solving. FUSE partners with city leaders to identify key strategic challenges and then recruits entrepreneurial professionals who spend a year working in local government to address those challenges. Typically FUSE Fellows have on average 15-20 years of professional experience and are uniquely qualified for their individual projects as well as the program as a whole. FUSE fellows are uniquely positioned to achieve transformative impact across issues areas such as education, health, social services, economic development, public safety, and the environment.

FUSE historically attracts over 1,000 applications annually across a wide range of unique positions. The recruiting team then averages approximately 500 initial phone interviews and another 250 follow-up video conference interviews to select the 125 finalists who will interview (three finalists per project) with our 40+ host agency leaders to select the individuals who will serve as fellows. Given our current scale and plans for future growth, FUSE is now in the process of concluding relationships with outsourced partners and bringing this function in-house by building a recruiting team and improving its recruiting systems.



The Recruiting Associate position is a high-impact opportunity for an entrepreneurial professional to make a difference in communities across the United States.  As a Recruiting Associate, reporting to the Director of Recruiting Operations, you will be integral to ensuring that FUSE’s efforts to identify, attract, and retain incredible talent to serve in yearlong executive fellowships runs smoothly and efficiently. FUSE has a multi-step recruiting process that takes place on a cyclical basis and includes: application reviews, phone interviews, video interviews, in-person interviews, candidate due diligence and contracting. This role therefore requires the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, identify and implement process improvements that drive efficiency, and consistently demonstrate excellent customer service-orientation.
