Human Resources Manager
Ready to take on some of the most powerful forces in our society? We’re looking for a human resources manager to join a fierce, smart team challenging global corporations, holding them accountable, and creating a world where all people can thrive.
Why you’ll love coming to work every day
You’ll help change the world. You’ll be joining an organization that’s not satisfied with the world as it is—and has a vision for how it should be. Add a 40-year track record of winning campaigns and ambitious plans to have an even bigger impact, and you’ve got a powerful force to be reckoned with.
You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of seasoned, kind, determined, optimistic, and solutions-oriented folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and always have each other’s backs.
You’ll be a part of fearless and winning campaigns. When your quest is ending corporate abuse, you can’t be afraid to name names and demand what the world needs. For 40 years, we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, Exxon Mobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, Dow Chemical, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.
You can take on big responsibilities as you go. You’ll thrive here as you develop new skills, tackle new challenges, learn, and grow. We pay lots of attention to building staff leadership, and we provide support and training to help you become the best leader you can be.
You’ll be part of an organization committed to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We know we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together.
What you’ll do
For more than four decades, Corporate Accountability’s greatest strength has been its people—the hundreds of thousands of supporters, members, and allies around the globe who power the organization, and the staff who keep it running every day.
Your job will be to support our talented, creative staff to thrive in their roles and be the best change-makers they can be. That starts with their first day of orientation and ends with their last day on our staff, with many milestones along the way. And it means many different things: Making sure staff have the benefits they need to live healthy lives. Guiding them through the organization’s evaluation and leadership development process. And keeping the workplace running smoothly and in compliance so each individual can focus on their own important role.
In so doing, you’ll help ensure that our working environment is a microcosm of the inclusive, equitable world we envision. And as you help our staff grow and thrive, you’ll take on new projects and leadership, too—making ever greater impact toward building that world.
Who you are
- The rampant abuses of corporations and the outrageous amount of power they have make you mad as hell—and you want to do something about it.
- You have solid experience managing projects from start to finish, meeting tough deadlines, and managing both up and laterally to get what you need. Guided by your strong attention to detail, you create and manage successful work plans that track toward weekly, monthly, and yearly goals.
- You understand that changing the imbalance of power in the world, its inherent racial injustice, and the oppression people of color experience is a critical part of your work for justice. You have a commitment to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression.
- You’re a problem-solver. You can work under pressure, and you come up with creative solutions when unexpected situations arise. When something doesn’t go as planned, you’re ready to adapt and adjust to get back on track.
- You passionately believe that relationship-based organizing is how we change the world—and you’ve got the relationship-building and interpersonal communication skills to prove it. You know how to build trust within a team. And you can both listen to people with empathy and compassion, and speak to them in a clear and direct way.
- You have a working knowledge of labor law, or enthusiasm to learn.
- You have at least two years of human resources experience, ideally in a nonprofit or campaign setting.
- Bonus: You have experience with a Human Resources Information System (HRIS) such as BambooHR, Namely, or ADP Workforce Now, and/or knowledge of international HR practices.
What you’ll be responsible for in the day-to-day
- Ensure Corporate Accountability’s policies and operations are in compliance with applicable labor laws and regulations.
- Maintain systems for onboarding and offboarding staff and interns.
- Administer the staff benefits package and maintain personnel files.
- Support staff leadership development, which will include driving and coordinating the staff evaluation process.
- Coordinate celebrations of staff personal and professional milestones, ensuring our gatherings are fun and inclusive.
- Support office administration, including playing a leadership role on our cross-unit technology and security teams.
- Enthusiastically participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising, recruitment, and campaign activities.
Salary and benefits:
- Salary range: $47,500 to $58,300, commensurate with experience.
- Our comprehensive benefit package includes health insurance (with 90% of the premium for all tiers covered by the organization) and dental coverage (with 100% of the individual premium covered by the organization and the option to add dependents at an additional cost); FSA for transit, health care, and dependent care; and 401(k) with employer match.
- Generous vacation, sick time, and holiday policies.
- Both internal and external training and leadership development opportunities.
- Energetic Campaign Headquarters complete with open, collaborative work spaces and a big, social kitchen.
Campaign Headquarters in downtown Boston, MA.
