One of the world’s most prestigious development and humanitarian aid organizations is looking for a Senior Human Capital Strategist to work on a 4- to 6-month contract assignment. They’re in the middle of a major organizational transformation, and they need a seasoned organizational pro with a history of driving change management within large multinational organizations. While this role is heavily strategic, you can expect to do your share of hands-on work, as well.
This is a unique opportunity to get involved with a well-funded NGO that’s doing serious social good around the world.
This NGO is undergoing a substantial and progressive reorganization that will position them to deliver success to their clients worldwide, long into the future. With all of the vast efficiencies that technology affords us, it’s time to modernize this organization and set it on a positive course.
As Senior Human Capital Strategist, you will be the driving force behind the organizational strategy and implementation for the change. That means developing a roadmap for implementing the new operating model, working closely with senior management to embrace the organizational change, and then helping to sell in the changes to affected employees around the globe. You’ll also be creating a framework to provide ongoing workforce support and training.
There’s a lot of documentation to be done here. You’ll drive the creation of overall HR strategies, executive impact summaries, and transparent employee-facing communications. This last item is a particular challenge; they need to structure the new information and options in an accessible, understandable fashion. You’ll be the go-to expert for determining the right way to deliver this information to talent at home and abroad.
Speaking of which, you’ll be designing the strategy for ensuring alignment for all HR professionals in every country and at every level, both at the implementation phase and going forward.
Change management is what you do, and you love it. As seasoned human capital strategist, you’ve led change management initiatives for large, multinational companies, NGOs, or non-profits. You’re not daunted by companies with very specific regulatory frameworks. In fact, you have a track record of making a major impact at these multinational organizations that persists long after you leave.
Strategy documents, roadmaps, implementation plans — none of these are new to you. You have a nuanced understanding of how organizational change can affect HR teams and employees alike, and you have a gift for making these changes understandable for talent at all levels.
You have extensive experience working within international constraints. You’ve deployed complex organizational strategies to teams around the globe, and you have an innate ability to build beneficial relationships with various departments in international locations.
Diplomacy is your middle name. You’ve worked with unions, consultants, and heavily-matrixed internal teams. You understand that each group has specific needs and challenges, and you approach each with grace and aplomb.
You’ve been called the Change Management Whisperer. This means you help executives get to where they need to be in a way that preserves trust with their people, while still getting things done.
All in all, this client needs way more than a standard HR generalist. They need heavy-duty strategic acumen with plenty of multinational and NGO experience. Nothing else will do.
For the right Senior Human Capital Strategist, this is a chance to put one of the world’s most recognizable names in social good on your resume. And hey, helping people help other people doesn’t hurt, either.
