Employment Opportunities

The primary mission of the National Indian Gaming Commission (the “Commission” or “NIGC”) is to work within the framework created by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (“IGRA”) for the regulation of gaming activities conducted by sovereign Indian nations and tribes on Indian lands, and to fully realize IGRA’s goals: (1) promoting tribal economic development, self-sufficiency, and strong tribal governments; (2) maintaining the integrity of the Indian gaming industry; and (3) ensuring that tribes are the primary beneficiaries of their gaming activities.

We are committed to the prompt and efficient regulation of the Indian gaming industry, which spans more than 500 gaming facilities, associated with 245 tribes across 29 states. The Commission’s dedication to compliance ensures the integrity of the $41.9 billion Indian gaming industry.

We recognize that the Commission's strength is derived from our staff. The NIGC "family" is a small, diverse, well-trained, and career-oriented team with the finest professionals in gaming. The Commission has approximately 120 highly motivated individuals working at our headquarters in Washington, D.C., and across seven administrative regional offices.

To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.

Periodically the NIGC has a need to fill vacancies in order to meet our regulatory responsibilities. Below is a listing of current vacancies.
