Human Resources Department

Most AKC divisions focus on providing services to our external constituents-- the Fancy and others who either own purebred dogs or participate in AKC-sponsored events. The Human Resources Division is uniquely focused on the employees and retirees of the American Kennel Club.

Human Resources provides a wide range of internal services to help ensure that AKC

  • is staffed with capable, motivated employees;
  • has compensation and benefit programs to attract and retain employees;
  • has policies and procedures that foster good employee relations and comply with all applicable employment laws; and
  • provides appropriate training and development opportunities for its employees.

We invite anyone interested in pursuing a career at the American Kennel Club to visit the Employment Opportunities section of the AKC website. Here you will find information on many of our open positions and how to apply for them.
