HR Operations (Volunteer)
*Note: The following is an opportunity for volunteer, part-time, flexible work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. This is a work at home (remote) position. Minimum commitment of 10 hours/ week for 6 months required.
Are you interested in learning the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization in a challenging, rewarding environment? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is seeking an HR Business Partner (volunteer) to help us lead our efforts and help us with some exciting HR projects.
Check out WhoWhatWhy.org. You’ll quickly see that, besides being a nonprofit news organization, we’re a credible solution to the raging debate over whether the news is “fake” or not, with agenda-free research and publishing through bracingly fresh analysis. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking. We just want the truth — whatever it is.
We are looking for a passionate, high energy individual who is excited about creating and implementing HR programs, structures, and processes. As a startup, we are looking for people who would bring structure and scale to the complex growth challenges of a nonprofit organization by rolling up their sleeves to get stuff done! In addition to doing groundbreaking work, this role will be pivotal in establishing a culture of openness, positive communication, and continuous learning.
Who We Are
WhoWhatWhy is a news organization and community providing the public with high-quality investigative and analytical forensic journalism on the great issues facing humankind. A nonprofit that accepts no advertising, we are staffed largely with skilled volunteers dedicated to elevating public awareness and fostering a more vigorous democracy.
You will work remotely and on your own schedule as we believe remote work is essential to cultivate a productive and happy culture. We also require a minimum commitment of 10-15 hours a week (Though doing more is not discouraged!). Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we communicate mostly through Slack and email, and team members are requested to be highly responsive in a timely manner. All staff are required to respond to emails on a daily basis.
Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that outlines your experience, skillset and explains why you're a good fit for this position. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. If there is no option to attach a cover letter, please send a cover letter to email@example.com.
* Please confirm your understanding that this is a volunteer position. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions.
