We’ve been saving lives every day for over 20 years.
Overview of the role
People are at the core of what we do. As The Trevor Project expands to pursue our mission to end LGBTQ youth suicide, we are growing our Recruitment team to ensure that as we expand our reach, we are positioned to attract and hire the right talent to support our mission. The Vice President of Global Recruitment will oversee and provide strategic guidance to the team’s approach to talent acquisition and onboarding across the organization. Reporting to the Chief People Officer, the Vice President of Global Recruitment will coach and collaborate with direct reports and strategically partner with leaders across the organization to support evolving hiring needs and priorities. As a mission-driven professional experienced in overseeing recruitment teams in rapidly scaling organizations, the Vice President of Global Recruitment will ensure that we have compliant, creative, and scalable hiring strategies with an eye to diversity and inclusivity as we work to save LGBTQ young lives.
Who you are
- Experienced people leader. You bring experience across Recruitment and Recruitment Operations including vendor management, sourcing, efficient process creation and mapping, candidate experience, compliance, staff training & development, leadership, DEI, onboarding, and labor laws/legal compliance. This will include significant people management experience.
- Big-picture thinker. You are someone who works with the end user in mind. You’re someone who thinks strategically, but who keeps an eye on impact for all involved. You love to brainstorm and come up with big bold ideas, but can simplify implementation. You look at the way things are and then imagine 20 ways they can be improved.
- Expert in scaling. You have a track record of successfully leading and scaling Recruiting teams as well as building an organization’s capacity at all levels to actively participate in sourcing talent. You love working at a strategic level, but are also happy to roll up your sleeves in addressing tactical and operational matters when needed, especially during periods of growth or developing staff.
- Perpetual learner. You are energized by learning about new topics and can quickly get up to speed and disseminate information to others in a logical and digestible manner.
- Driven by data. You are an analytical and metrics-driven leader who is comfortable leveraging data to inform programmatic decisions and assess effectiveness.
- Culturally competent. You understand the nuances of diversity, equity, and inclusion work, and have leveraged these nuances to develop inclusive programs or policies in past roles. You are willing to learn more about marginalized identities and bring your awareness to all the work you do.
- Collaborative. You understand that the best way to meet and exceed goals is through outstanding teamwork. This includes working with people at all levels of the organization and managing stakeholder expectations.
- Flexible. You are comfortable operating in a work environment with rapid change. You are accustomed to pivoting when organizational needs or priorities change, and you can take on unanticipated new initiatives with ease. You’re skilled in leading amid uncertainty and without perfect information, and you maintain composure and remain positive under pressure.
- Passionate. You care about LGBTQ youth. You care about saving lives. You want to come to work and feel inspired every day. You want to change the world.
- Fun. The work we do is very serious, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. We know how to have a good time and you should too.
