The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is looking for an enthusiastic people operations professional to join an emerging people and culture team which supports our commitment to a collaborative, collegial, and growth-oriented work environment. This is an exciting opportunity for someone interested in collaborating with leaders and their team members at all levels of the organization to implement and manage HR initiatives that support the Campaign in its efforts to become a world-class employer.


What You Will Accomplish:


• Under the strategic direction of the Vice President and Chief People and Culture Officer, you will be a critical partner in a newly formed department, ensuring the organization adopts best practices. You will be a member of a three-person People and Culture team, working in partnership with the VP and the People and Culture Business Partner to build a strong people operations foundation that will grow as our global organization of 150+ staff and consultants continues to grow. Your role will focus on the following key areas:


• Talent Acquisition and Management: You will own oversight of the integrity of the Campaign’s newly implemented talent acquisition software, Lever TRM, and use it to continue to build scalable hiring practices grounded in our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, with a focus on attracting and onboarding great talent. Guiding the People and Culture Business Partner, and in partnership with hiring managers and their teams, you will ensure the department’s understanding of hiring and development needs and identify the capabilities necessary to meet the Campaign’s business goals.


• Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI): You will continue to move forward the Campaign’s multi-year DEI journey, ensuring the work completed to date continues so the DEI commitments we have made become an integral part of who we are as an organization, incorporating our stated values. Your work will include gathering and reporting on our progress on key DEI metrics and ensuring a continuous learning process for all team members, guiding employees on what it looks like to live out our organizational values in all decisions, programs, and processes.


• Leadership Development: You will oversee our current leadership development initiatives, as well as research and implement, as directed, new solutions for making our leaders better managers. You will provide coaching and feedback to our existing leadership team.


• Employee Experience: You will create an employee experience that touches all points of the employee lifecycle to create a work environment where all our employees can thrive. You will ensure a meaningful onboarding experience for new staff so they know what it means to be a team member. You will be the first point of contact for team members at all levels to guide and coach them on a variety of employee matters, ensuring the appropriate balance of our values/culture and alignment with needed compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws to support the Campaign’s integrity as an employer. You will understand the developmental needs of our team members to inform the development of scalable learning and development efforts that aid in growing each team member’s capabilities and support employee retention.


• People and Culture Operations Management. You will own the management of several key HR operational programs that support the Campaign's work, including but not limited to our internship program, travel program, and some administrative functions.


• Technology Enablement: You will take the lead on ensuring all people and culture processes at the Campaign are fully leveraged by using all available technologies to create a user experience for all team members that are efficient, streamlined, and user-friendly.


Skills You Will Bring To This Role:


• Proven success as an HR practitioner, reflected in a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and at least seven (7) years of experience, including experience supervising team members. An HR practitioner credential (e.g., PHR/SPHR, SHRM-CP/SCP) or the equivalent is preferred, reflecting your knowledge of employment laws/regulations and your success in managing the daily operations of viable human resources function. Experience working in the non-profit industry is a plus.


• Demonstrated success in using strong verbal/written communications, analytical and problem-solving, and project management skills to implement and manage a variety of people operations initiatives across several areas, i.e., talent acquisition, benefits, compensation, employee engagement, learning and development, employee relations, policy development, and compliance domestically and globally.


• Strong HR technology skills, with a demonstrated understanding of how to use technology to streamline a people operations function.


• Demonstrated facilitation skills to guide individual and group discussions to measurable outcomes.


• An approachable demeanor inspires trust and confidence from leaders and individual contributors.


Why Join Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids?:


• You will be a part of a respected global health advocacy organization that works to create meaningful change through policy changes and save lives in our neighborhoods and in communities worldwide.


• You’ll receive a generous benefits package including:


• 100% company-paid health, vision, and dental for you; 70-80% contribution to these coverages for your dependents.


• Paid parental leave benefits (4 weeks paid maternity/paternity leave) and federal and local leave provisions.
