The Human Resources & Recruiting Consultant will be a part-time professional who will assist with and be highly impactful in the human resources and recruiting process for a rapidly growing private equity firm.

The candidate will work directly with the firm’s executive management to assist on specific assignments and be expected to take a leadership role and operate autonomously. This role can grow commensurate with the consultant’s ability to take on additional related assignments.

This is a unique opportunity to have a very flexible, part-time work situation and be part of a lean private equity firm entering its next stage of growth. It is expected that a material portion, but not all, of the consultant’s work will be completed from a location of his or her choosing.
