President and CEO

We value creating an environment of innovation, empowerment, flexibility, authenticity, opportunity and community. As thought leaders in the HR space, our team of experts are called upon to be part of our clients’ solutions and have the opportunity to be creative with new HR challenges every day.

There’s never a dull moment as we work with multiple clients of varying missions and sizes, each one with their own unique identity and needs. And our talent and HR business partners have the opportunity to get involved in business development, special projects, and new initiatives in addition to projects and day-to-day HR work.

We believe in giving our clients our best. We also believe that giving our best requires that we take care of ourselves and take time to balance or personal and professional lives. Because we operate from a results-oriented, trust-based environment, we empower our staff to manage their own schedules and enjoy unlimited paid time off. To us, doing our best work is all about maximizing the impact of the organizations we serve and supporting their communities and missions.

  • HR Business Partner

    HR Business Partner Needed with Passion, Professionalism & Pizazz

    (Full-Time Opportunity)

    Are you an HR professional who wants to make a difference in the nonprofit sector and have an impact on multiple missions?  Are you up to the challenge of partnering with mission-driven organizations to bring their HR functions into the 21st century? Are you ready for your advice and guidance to be sought after and valued?  If so, Nonprofit HR is looking for you!

    We are looking for high-performing HR Business Partners (HRBP) for our fastest growing division, The HR Cooperative.  Different from traditional consulting, The HR Cooperative uses a virtual model that allows us to partner with small nonprofits that have great missions but don’t have all the resources they need to advance their work. Working in the HR Cooperative provides our HRBPs the opportunity to virtually manage their clients’ human resources efficiently and effectively in a way that’s cost effective and impactful.

    As an HRBP, you’ll manage a portfolio of up to a dozen clients and support both their strategic and operational needs around:  benefits, compliance, culture, employee relations, leadership support, onboarding & orientation, performance management, talent acquisition and training & development.

    You’ll also have a community of colleagues and will work under the general direction of The HR Cooperative Practice Leader to ensure high-quality client service and culture.

    If you have five (5) or more years of experience as a generalist and deep technical experience in all functional areas of HR, we should talk. Having an HR certification is a bonus.

Why our team values Nonprofit HR.

One of the reasons I joined Nonprofit HR was due to the authenticity of the leaders of the organization. They are always motivating staff to be empowered and take challenges head on. They also create a culture of innovation, encouraging new ideas and approaches for our business to thrive.

Having leadership that is genuinely invested in my career growth is so important to me because they give me the solid support I need to move forward with any desired professional development opportunities. Doing that on a consistent basis has further secured my loyalty and has made me want to do everything I possibly could to ensure Nonprofit HR’s success just as much as my own.
