Job Description

Sr HR Manager (Volunteer)*Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment.* This is a remote-from-home position.Are you interested in learning the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization in a challenging, rewarding environment? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is seeking an HR Manager to help us with some exciting projects for the HR department.Check out WhoWhatWhy.org. You'll quickly see that, besides being a nonprofit news organization, we're a credible solution to the raging debate over whether the news is "fake" or not," with agenda-free research and publishing bracingly fresh analysis. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking. We just want the truth - whatever it is. We have thought long and hard about what limits journalism's ability to effect positive change in the public interest, and we see two factors that dominate the landscape: (1) Commercial entities overly concerned with meeting financial goals and filling "eyeball" quotas - while not straying from the rest of the pack, thereby ensuring a sameness and superficiality to the coverage. (2) Ideologically driven outfits catering to a specific mindset and not daring to reveal things that would upset their readers - or force them to reconsider their values.At WhoWhatWhy, we go at each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep and ask hard questions - even when we're told not to. Nothing is going to stand in our way when it comes to discovering what is going on beneath the surface, and why. Call it naive to believe such fearlessness possible, but we think it's the essence of true journalism. And because we're straight to the point, we make clear that we're looking for volunteers - skilled volunteers. Yes, we're a nonprofit that wasn't funded by a zillionaire. Yes, we decline to accept corporate ads. Because of that, we look for volunteers - with the possibility, down the road, of compensation based on proven results.We are looking for a passionate, high energy individual who is excited about creating and implementing HR programs, structures and processes. As a startup, we are looking for people who would bring structure and scale to complex growth challenges of a non-profit organization and at the same time willing to roll up the sleeves to get stuff done!This is an opportunity for you to be part of an organization where you can influence the thinking around our people processes and systems, which results in a direct impact on our volunteer experience and growth of WhoWhatWhy.ResponsibilitiesPartner with department heads to develop the talent strategy needed to support our tremendous growth and build a collaborative work environment.Function as a consultant to key leaders, engage in strategic planning meetings to translate business needs into HR plans.Partner with departments to create an organization structureAssist in skill assessment and developmentCoordinate the development and execution of HR talent development and engagement strategyAssist in planning, developing, writing and maintaining procedural documents, instructions and guides for new or modified HR processes.Qualifications Bachelor's Degree required.
