Our goal is to cultivate an inclusive work environment so that all our colleagues around the globe feel a sense of belonging, and that their unique contributions to our mission are valued. We’ll only achieve our Mission by hiring and engaging a diverse workforce that reflects the communities in which we work. In addition to the requirements in our postings, we recognize that people come with talent and experiences outside of a job. Diversity of experience and skills combined with passion is a key to innovation and a culture of inclusion! Please apply – we’d love to hear from you. To quote myriad TNC staff members, “you’ll join for our mission, and you’ll stay for our people.”


The Talent Acquisition Operations & Compliance Specialist will provide support to TNC in two different areas: Operational Support and Compliance Reporting.

Operations support will involve working with the Talent Acquisition leadership team to utilize data to scale our systems and make recommendations to help build our broader Talent Acquisition hiring process flows. You’ll also service as the primary contact for the launch of a new applicant tracking system, including partnering with HR Systems teams on testing plans and system enhancements, identifying trends and gaps to improve recruiting processes, and lead small-medium scale continuous improvements. Additional responsibilities may include responding to inquiries through general inboxes, analysing trends, gathering social media metrics, providing recommendations, and helping TNC identify and implement innovative outreach methods to ensure we attract a global audience that reflects the communities in which we work.

Compliance support is directly related to our U.S. federal contractor status, and involves working with our external consultants, vendors, and staff across the U.S.; managing organizational-wide trainings and programs; and auditing recruiting activity to identify where specialized support may be needed to achieve our goals. Some of the tasks require extensive work with excel spreadsheets, specifically in preparing Affirmative Action Plans. They’ll partner closely with our HR Systems team to ensure accurate data and will submit all required compliance reports by their deadlines. Such reports include the EEO-1 and Vets-4212 reports, among others. Additionally, they’ll keep current on OFCCP/EEO regulations, organize our Labor Law posters across the U.S., and make strategic recommendations.


Are you looking for work you can believe in? At TNC, one of our core values is a Commitment to Diversity. We’re looking for a person to join our team who will not only contribute to this critical value, but someone who will directly influence our action of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion across the organization through our compliance reporting and inclusive recruiting practices.

We’re looking for someone who is familiar with OFCCP guidelines, recruiting tools and systems, and enjoys an analytical, solutions-oriented approach to improving process. They should be comfortable working with raw data, a trusted partner, and have a strong ability to collaborate with others to identify opportunities and derive insights to shape recommendations. Join us and find a place where your work is contributing to the most noble Mission of our time – to save the world!
