Job Opportunity: Human Resources Manager

HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER

Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (HCHC) is an established nonprofit that develops and operates service-enriched affordable housing for the homeless and low-income households.  HCHC was incorporated in 1989 to address specific housing and service needs in the Hollywood area and expanded to work in neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles County more than a decade ago.  The size of HCHC’s staff is anticipated to triple over the next three years and the organization is excited to hire its first Human Resources Manager.  To learn more about HCHC’s mission and work, please visit our website at www.hollywoodhousing.org.

POSITION SUMMARY

HCHC’s Human Resources (HR) Manager will join the management team to help the organization grow from a staff of under 20 people to approximately 50 people by the end of 2023.  In addition to performing all HR-related duties, the HR Manager will be instrumental in helping the organization to achieve priorities articulated in the new strategic plan including our commitment to equity, diversity, access and inclusion (EDAI). 

The HR Manager will support the hiring, training and professional development needs of our three established programs:  Housing Development, Resident Services and Asset Management.   In 2021 the organization initiated a three year process to create our fourth program which is Property Management (PM).  The PM program will drive most of HCHC’s growth as we hire on-site managers, maintenance personnel, compliance specialists and regional managers.   The Accounting and Administrative departments will also add staff to support the new program.
