WORK FOR IPS


Employees are the Institute for Public Service’s greatest asset and are critical to its ability to achieve success across the state. We are committed to recruiting and retaining the best and brightest staff.

Every day in Tennessee, nearly 200 IPS employees from Memphis to Johnson City are helping city and county governments, law enforcement personnel, and manufacturers and small business leaders serve their customers and clients better. We’re looking for motivated and hard-working team members dedicated to making Tennessee a better place to work and live.
