Discover a powerful opportunity at Associated Electric Cooperative

About 910,000 homes, farms and businesses count on their rural electric cooperatives to deliver electricity 24/7. And they do with power from Associated Electric, the wholesale power supplier to six regional generation and transmission cooperatives (G&Ts) that serve 51 local electric cooperatives in Missouri, southeast Iowa and northeast Oklahoma.

Each employee at Associated Electric plays a part in providing economic and reliable power to member-owners. Associated employs about 670 people full time at three Missouri locations, offering employment opportunities across a wide spectrum of technical, operational and professional disciplines. The cooperative is committed to employees and provides a competitive compensation and benefit package, as well as opportunities for personal and professional development.

Associated Electric has many strengths: tremendous generation and transmission assets; a strong balance sheet; and a dedicated, talented workforce. If you are ready to work with a company whose financial position and credit ratings continue to be among the best in the country and in a work environment where leaders truly care about the well-being of the workforce, you have come to the right place.

Associated, as an energy cooperative owned by the members it serves, relies on its dedicated and talented employees to efficiently operate its generation and transmission assets and deliver affordable and reliable electricity. The cooperative's financial strength, along with a strong focus on safety in everything we do, has allowed us to become a recognized leader in our region and community, as well as an employer of choice.
