Director of Human Resources

We’re SimpsonScarborough, the first and last name in higher education research, strategy, creative, and digital. In other words, we’re higher education marketers. We’re researchers who answer questions, strategists who question answers, and creatives who connect the dots, transforming questions into exclamation points, and building living, breathing higher education brands that inspire and endure.

We are a growing team looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic new member. We expect a lot from our team members and champion their successes. This position will work closely with company leadership to build a superior team, develop an employee-oriented culture, and ensure the safety of our workforce. The job requires:

  • Compensation and benefits administration
  • Employee safety, welfare, and wellness education

One day, the Director of HR might be drafting up options for a new vacation policy, planning an annual retreat, and managing the hiring process for a new employee. Another day might be spent exploring professional development options, onboarding three new team members, and organizing annual reviews. The ideal candidate is an HR generalist that has worked in a company of at least 100-120 employees and has helped to develop an employee-oriented, high-performance culture. Because we are small, a high energy, detail-oriented individual is desired.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in related field
  • 3+ years experience in human resources
  • Strong communication (good listening, speaking and writing skills)
  • Ability to handle projects independently with minimal supervision
