The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and invigorate civic life.
We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.
Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the best interests of the people. We partner with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations and concerned citizens who share our interest in fact-based solutions and goal-driven investments to improve society.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Australia, Brussels and London, and with additional staff in other regions of the United States and around the globe, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.
Reporting to the vice president, human resources, the project director leads the human resources business partnership (HRBP) team to ensure its objectives and performance are closely aligned with the needs of the organization. The HRBP team serves as a strategic HR partner to all departments of the organization, providing guidance on individual, team and organizational performance and HR matters. The HRBP team works with internal customers on a range of areas including strategy, staff development, organizational structure and design, workforce planning, employee matters, and performance management. The HRBP team works closely with all areas within HR to ensure the successful implementation of HR initiatives, including compensation and benefits, recruitment, training and development.
The project director sets overall strategy and direction for the HRBP work, consistent with HR department and organizational goals. This includes prioritizing work that is critical to the organization, aligning resources with business needs, and setting short- and long-term goals and workplans. On a day-to-day basis, he/she will own customer relationships along with overseeing a team that regularly interfaces with staff at all levels of the organization.
