About Prospect Park Alliance
Founded in 1987, Prospect Park Alliance is the nonprofit organization whose mission is to sustain, restore, and advance Prospect Park, in partnership with the City of New York, to benefit the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home. Designed by the visionary landscape architecture team of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, Prospect Park has experienced both tremendous periods of growth and unfortunate decades of neglect throughout its 150-year history. Today, Prospect Park is an international model for the care of urban parks, and one of the premier green spaces in the United States, welcoming more than 10 million visits each year and offering a diverse range of volunteer, education and recreation programs.
This is an exceptional opportunity for a highly skilled, proven and impactful HR leader to join our leadership team and implement a “best-in-class” people, culture and HR operational strategy to support our organization’s goals, manage our efforts to develop a diverse and inclusive work culture and build positive employment experiences for our staff. Reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer and working closely with the President and senior staff, the Senior Director of People & Culture will be instrumental in leading the planned HR transformation efforts across a diverse range of HR initiatives including HR technology (HCMS), talent recruiting, performance management, learning, compensation and total rewards, and employee engagement. The Senior Director will contribute at both a hands-on and strategic level and serve as an HR subject matter expert and resource for the leadership team, people managers and individual contributors as the organization plans its next phase of growth.
