Lisa Brown Alexander,
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.

Does Nonprofit HR sound like the organization you’ve been searching for? Do you have a deep desire to use your talents to make a difference for nonprofits and the people they serve? Are you an A-player who is excited to do something no organization has done before?

Current opportunities

  • HR Business Partner/Outsourcing

    HR Business Partner/Outsourcing

    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 (HRBPs) for our fast-growing Outsourcing practice. Our Outsourcing practice partners with small and mid-size nonprofits that have great missions but don’t have all the resources they need to advance their work. As an HRBP, you’ll manage a portfolio of multiple 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 to collaborate with, but will work mostly independently 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. You should be analytical and able to look broadly at business practices to identify critical HR/talent implications. If you have a strong client service orientation, commitment to excellence, are highly self-motivated and comfortable interacting with a wide variety of audiences including management, staff, boards of directors and other potential client stakeholders, this could be a great opportunity for you. You must be able to work effectively alone and with a team. Your technology skills should speak for themselves and having an entrepreneurial orientation doesn’t hurt either. Having the ability to work confidently and independently in a dynamic, fast-paced environment will get you noticed.

    If you’re looking for a creative, solutions-driven work environment where you can make a living and a difference, we’d love to hear from you!

    Nonprofit HR also offers an exceptional benefits plan that includes: unlimited leave, medical and dental, a generous holiday schedule, a 401k match program and the opportunity to chart your own professional course!

Lately at Nonprofit HR:

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.

Yvonne RiveraManager, Talent Acquisition

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.

Nena Coleman GrayTalent Acquisition Consultant

Shortly after I joined the firm, I was honored not only for the talents I brought to the team, but also simply for being who I am as an individual. Rarely do people hear a more gratifying expression in the workplace, which confirmed that I had come to right place!

Samantha JusticeHR Business Partner

“Whenever I am asked about my job, people can tell how much I enjoy it. It is fabulous to be able to work in a role where I know that my contributions are helping nonprofits achieve their remarkable missions. Working with a wide variety of clients provides me with the opportunity to deal with all kinds of HR and talent issues.

Working at Nonprofit HR not only provides me with this client experience. It also provides me with the opportunity to work with a great team of HR professionals who all have strong experience, believe in providing top quality service and advice, are dedicated to the work of nonprofits, and work collegially. The management team is amazingly inspiring in that they live the company values they preach and are constantly challenging us to new heights. They foster an environment of support, trust and transparency. There is always the opportunity to grow and be challenged in our firm, and to find new ways to impact the nonprofit sector.”
