Job Posting: Operations Manager

Since 1977, the Minnesota Business Partnership’s mission has been based on the firm belief that the quality of life for all Minnesotans is directly linked to our state’s economic health. As a group of 120 CEOs of the largest companies in Minnesota, our business leaders know they have a responsibility to protect and improve Minnesota’s economy and quality of life.

To pursue our mission, the Partnership works with elected officials, state agency staff and others on a range of public policy issues relevant to all Minnesotans: education, jobs and the economy, and health care. But the nature of our membership dictates that the Partnership be a nonpartisan organization. We take a stand on issues. But our focus is on progress, not partisan politics.

We are currently seeking an Operations Manager at our downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota office in the IDS Building.
