Director of Human Assets


Job Title: Director of Human Assets

Organization: OneGoal


Job Description

About OneGoal

In 1970, 6% of students from low-income communities completed college. Today, that number is a mere 9%. Anchored in this belief, we have one goal: college graduation. Period. At OneGoal, we believe we must move the needle on this most critical challenge facing our nation especially given it is solvable. We believe all students have what it takes to earn a college degree, and should have a real opportunity to fulfill their potential. Our Director of Human Assets will join a national movement changing the trajectory for our country’s most underserved youth during a unique window in time:

By 2017, OneGoal will serve more than 9,300 students (“OneGoal Fellows”) in 180 schools in six states across our country. OneGoal’s teacher-led, in-school, three-year college access and success model is reversing the odds. While nationwide, only 9% of kids in low-income communities graduate from college, 82% of OneGoal Fellows enroll in college and 78% are persisting or have graduated from college. Since 2013, OneGoal has grown in staff size by an average of 50% and with over 100 staff members, is embarking on “Phase III” of our growth stage, anticipating additional growth to new regions.

The Person

You believe – and your work has demonstrated your belief – that all students can earn a college degree and the life that comes with it. As Director of Human Assets, you are chiefly responsible and accountable for elevating and delivering on core human resources responsibilities that will support OneGoal as a thriving and enduring organization. Your work will build upon strong human assets foundations that have taken our organization from 10 to 100 staff members in 4 years, and include significant partnership with other Human Assets team members, as well as leaders across the organization.

Setting the vision and leading on HR responsibilities, including:
Payroll Administration, in partnership with our Finance Team

Onboarding Administration
Performance Review Evolution and Administration
HRIS Maintenance
Vendor Management
Supporting Compensation Administration, in partnership with the Managing Director of Human Assets, BP
Providing centralized HR generalist support
Additional projects to support the Human Assets overall team charge, as necessary

You will lead these work streams by:

Grounding yourself in the charge of the Human Asset’s Team, which is to partner with and empower team leads to attract, engage, develop and retain exceptional and diverse talent and lead with tenacious curiosity and compassion. You will do this by:

Leveraging external best practices and resources to assess and make recommendations on applying those to the OneGoal culture, values and context
Engaging senior team leads, managers and teammates as key stakeholders and partners in relevant HA decision-making and in fostering an inclusive, equitable work environment
Leveraging influence skills in order to maximize vendor partnerships (e.g. benefits broker, 401k partner and advisor) and inspire those key partners to support our staff and deliver strong services
Coaching and developing the Manager of Human Assets (new position) to deliver successfully on our scaling HA responsibilities
Though the Director of Human Assets is likely to see himself/herself/themselves in the following examples, these are not requirements. These examples are designed to help you determine if this opportunity aligns with your own passion and purpose.

– You simultaneously manage a variety of projects toward ambitious outcomes.
– You take pride in identifying and implementing high impact solutions that will support our staff and/or improve team efficiency.

You are a problem-solver.
– You have the ability to break down and sequence large projects into manageable pieces for yourself and others. You see the big picture, but you have a disciplined attention to detail.
– You don’t mind the occasional fire-drill and can apply quick solutions to sudden challenges.
– You recognize that “human” work means that no process or structure will have all the answers and that your role is to support our people in navigating the subjectivity and nuance of this truth.
– You like to explore and build innovative approaches, and have designed new ways of doing things.

You put people first.
– You value people over process and recognize that great support starts with strong relationships.
– You thrive on collaboration and feedback.
– You support your team members by demonstrating empathy, inclusivity, and trust.

You are a continuous learner.
– You are constantly learning, adapting and developing your managerial and leadership skills; you create and seize opportunities to refine your knowledge, skills and mindsets in both your personal and professional life.
– You put more energy into learning, collaboration and innovation, always asking the question “is there a better way?” and being willing to try something new.
– You proactively seek feedback, practice active listening, and are willing to admit and learn from failures, knowing that is key to your growth and success.
