Latino Memphis is bringing people together to get jobs done in our community! Employers can post job openings and those looking for a job can browse through many opportunities available in our community.
 

Job Applicants

Latino Memphis posts job openings from many employers throughout the MidSouth, however, Latino Memphis doesn’t take job applications for those job openings.

You must contact the employer directly to submit your application

Your use of the Latino Memphis Job Board indicates you agree to and accept the terms listed in the Job Board Disclaimer. 

Employers

Following the example of Momentum and other community partners, effective January 2021, Latino Memphis will only post and promote job openings for positions paying a minimum of $15 per hour. As an organization, we hold this standard for ourselves. We believe that employees should make a minimum living wage to support and provide for their families. We know that the wage disparity in Memphis, Tennessee, and across the nation disproportionately impact communities of color and immigrant communities. We hope this initiative will encourage others to support systemic initiatives that will promote upward mobility.

In addition to accepting the terms listed in the Job Board Disclaimer, please make sure you read the FAQ for Employers before posting your job opening.
