This is a great opportunity for someone who has been working for an HR manager or director or working in an administrative role in a small nonprofit or business to take a step up. The Human Resources Manager supports a growing team of 50+ by taking the lead in recruiting, hiring, onboarding, and administering pay, benefits, and leave within an inclusive work culture.
A professional who has worked in a broad HR role for a small to mid-sized company or a midsized to large nonprofit is likely a good fit for this role. Your work will support a diverse and highly skilled team of professionals working to amplify the impact of the nonprofits we serve throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Due to the pandemic, all work is currently from a home office. Eventually, it is expected that the HR Manager will work part-time from our office in Pacific Tower if they are located in the Seattle area. We are open to considering applicants from outside Seattle or outside of Washington State. We would like the position to be full-time in 2022 but are willing to reduce the hours somewhat during the pandemic.
