HR Consultant (with work/life balance)
Don’t Retire, Rewire! Most TPO senior consultants happily traded in their 60+ hour high-stress workweeks for a reasonable and predictable 25 hour week (on a W-2 basis). They still use their hard-won expertise to make a significant strategic impact, but now they have time for other things, and can rely on a team of likeminded professionals to support them. (Can you feel yourself relax just reading that?)
TPO clients are supported through the entire HR experience by our carefully chosen team. Our approach is to find the best and brightest HR professionals and provide them with the resources to perform successfully. We develop an intimate understanding of the business objectives of our clients, and by doing this, we consistently deliver high-quality, service-enhancing results for our clients.
Our consultants work in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area with a number of different clients. As a consultant:
You provide the right mix of HR strategy management and core HR operations to our clients.
You provide the critical, day-to-day link between HR plans, programs, activities and managers and staff.
You are on-site with your clients at least once each week and support clients throughout the week from your home office.
A flexible approach and strong business acumen allow you to understand and work with a variety of clients with different needs and priorities.
You design and implement all HR programs and ensure compliance.
You are at the heart of client engagements, and you build rapport with executives, managers and staff to effectively lead the client’s HR function.
Why Work for TPO?
We recognize the importance of flexibility and understand that not everyone wants or needs a full-time commitment. Working part-time for TPO, you won’t have to compromise on the quality or substance of the work that you do. Your work will be challenging and critical to the success of the different businesses that you support.
We offer a unique opportunity for senior level HR professionals to perform HR consulting without the distraction involved with running an independent business.
Our collegial environment provides the sense of belonging to a team and provides ongoing professional development.
Working independently, you will have flexibility to arrange work schedules that meet both client and your personal lifestyle needs.
