Jobs that mean more than money

We’ve all heard the expression: “That’s why they call it work.” If you’re looking for something more fulfilling than trading hours of your day for a paycheck, Grand Island is the place to be. Whether you want to join a great team or call your own plays, we’ve got the resources to make it happen.


Grand Island employers range from manufacturing to healthcare. Several companies with Grand Island locations — including Hornady and Chief Industries — are players on the global stage. White-collar positions in education and other professions also abound.


Innovation and entrepreneurship make communities go — and grow! If you’re ready to take an idea and run with it, Grand Island is ready for you. We’ve got the assistance to help you get your business off the ground and incentives to help it soar.

Supportive climate

Want to be part of what makes the community tick? Grand Island gives you the chance to learn, network and give back with organizations like Leadership Tomorrow, the chamber of commerce’s Young Professionals group and a variety of others.

"We've never felt as welcome anywhere as here in Grand Island. The community has embraced both us personally and our small family business."
