Senior Director of Human Resources
Ottawa (and around the world) - Nutrition is the difference between attending school and learning. It is the difference between fighting a disease and surviving it. It is the difference between giving birth and giving life. Everyday, Nutrition International works hard to create this difference, striving for better and faster ways to bring improved nutrition to the people of the world who need it most.
Nutrition International (formerly known as Micronutrient Initiative) was created in 1992 and since then it has grown from a small Canadian initiative into a global nutrition organization reaching millions of vulnerable people in some of the most impoverished parts of the world. Since its inception, Nutrition International has focused on forging powerful partnerships with countries, donors, and implementers around the globe to ensure the world's most vulnerable populations get the vitamins and minerals they need to survive and thrive.
Nurtrition International is an extremely fast-growing organization that continues to attract and secure funding and partnerships around the world. With the rapid increase of demand for the life-changing work they do, Nutrition International will continue to expand and grow their team, creating the need to recruit a new Senior Director of Human Resources to lead them through this growth period.
Reporting to the President & CEO, the Senior Director of Human Resources provides executive-level leadership and guidance to NI's HR function including organizational development, recruitment and onboarding, employment law, performance management, employee relations, and compensation & benefits. The Senior Director leads a global team of HR professionals to ensure effective implementation of HR policies and practices in each of NI's countries of operation.

Finally, you will provide expert advice and support to colleagues including members of the EMC, NI's Leadership Group and other senior staff and managers.
