Are you creative, hardworking? NCJWSTL may have just the job for you


Jordan Palmer, Chief Digital Content Officer

Most people will tell you that there is no such thing as the perfect job. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a job regardless of its perfection.  You’ll have ups and downs, and ebbs and flows. But, overall finding satisfaction in your work is very possible. Sadly, many folks are in positions where they never even think about their enjoyment factor. While at the same time, many folks are struggling to just find a job, regardless of whether they would enjoy it or not. They just need the paycheck.

Imagine, instead of searching job boards and recruitment websites, a job posting appeared in the form of a story, that could cut through and really show you if you’re a match for a job?



No matter if your goal is to find a job inside the St. Louis Jewish community, or one allowing you to grow, the National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis has two positions in their retail shop that can do both.

“We have both a donation center associate role and sales floor associate role open right now,” said Director of Retail Operations Jessica Duneman. “These positions are both full-time and would be perfect for either someone just starting out, eager to learn and grow in the role or for someone more seasoned that may be looking at NCJWSTL as more of a second career.”

NCJWSTL is looking to attract a long-term associate with a passion for their mission and an eagerness to drive success.

NCJWSTL is inspired by Jewish values to advance social and economic justice for all women, children, and families. Every dollar raised by way of The Resale Shop supports the many programs and projects NCJWSTL runs to support those who need it the most here in the St. Louis region.

This someone is creative, hardworking, customer service driven, and has a flexible attitude.

“You never know what a day is going to be like on the sales floor or in the donation center,” said Duneman. “Our days revolve around who and what shows up at the door. Being flexible is a must because every day is different. We have to be creative in the same light.”

Exceptional customer service skills is a must for this candidate.

“Our customers and donors are number one,” said Dunman

Is this you? Or someone you know?  

We know this person is out there, and we hope this story finds them soon.

Duneman says NCJWSTL is a wonderful place for people to work and continue to grow in their professional or volunteer career as they have so many avenues for people to spread their wings.

“There are director-level leadership roles and associate level roles on both the shop and the office side of the organization and many people find their passions for “why” they work for NCJWSTL can be widespread.” said Duneman. “Many move around and find their niche is really different from the role they initially started in or they may grow in their role and it turn into a role all their own as our organization is continually evolving.”
