Northwest Immigrant Rights Project

Human Resources Director

The Context:

At Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), we are looking for a passionate and talented Human Resources Director. In this role, you will work closely with the unionized staff and management team to support NWIRP’s culture of justice, equity, diversity, and representation during one of the most dynamic times in our history. We bring our core values of fairness, self-determination, and inclusion into all aspects of our work, and seek you, an individual who can build an inspiring HR program intentionally grounded in NWIRP’s values and principles.

Since 1984, NWIRP has been on the frontlines of protecting and defending immigrant rights and we have seen a dramatic increase in the need for our work. Due to the political landscape and attacks on immigrant rights, we are experiencing heightened visibility and substantial growth, having added over 50 employees to the team since 2017.

Each year, we provide direct legal representation and assistance in immigration matters to thousands of people with low incomes who come from over 130 countries and speak over 60 different languages. At NWIRP, we challenge unjust policies through high-impact lawsuits and advocate for laws and policies that respect the rights of immigrants. We are also trusted providers of immigration-related community education for immigrant communities and social service providers. We are over 100 employees strong and have an annual budget of over $12 million.

The Opportunity:

At this critical time, we seek someone who is eager to administer and lead the varied aspects of NWIRP's human resources (HR) needs across all employee classifications at all four of our Washington State offices in Granger, Seattle, Tacoma, and Wenatchee. We anticipate you will work from our Seattle office, but we welcome candidates with an interest in working from any of our offices. Regardless of the position’s location, you will occasionally travel within the state to each office.
