The Opportunity
Are you a committed Christian with a desire to use your extensive HR Generalist experience and your CPHR designation to be a part of something bigger than yourself? Are you passionate about cultivating and sustaining a healthy and engaging organizational culture by building strong and trusting relationships with all employees and managers? Do you value and excel at collaborative teamwork, inspirational leadership, and highly effective communication? If so, you would probably really enjoy working with us in this role.

If you have three or more years of HR generalist/advisor experience, including experience in giving quality advice and coaching to line managers; a track record of a proactive approach to customer service; excellent interpersonal and organizational skills, this might be the perfect fit!
