Employment opportunities

We are the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio — the PUCO. We support Ohio’s communities, helping keep the lights on, homes and businesses warm and roadways safe. The PUCO is the state agency responsible for the oversight of utilities such as natural gas and electricity and the enforcement of safety regulations for motor carriers and railroad crossings. Led by five commissioners, we regulate industries with an economic impact of over $24 billion on Ohio’s economy. 

To accomplish this mission, we need a diverse team of employees. The PUCO employs engineers, lawyers, analysts, accountants, customer service representatives, human resources professionals, auditors, investigators, information technology specialists, technical and field staff, communications professionals and economists. But most importantly, we hire passionate Ohioans who want to make a difference in our state.
