Bennington College seeks an engaging and highly organized professional to manage the administrative aspects of the Human Resources Office. Grounded in a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, the Human Resources Coordinator serves as a welcoming ambassador to all employees and applicants by building community and making connections to resources and services. The Coordinator also serves as a dependable and trusted partner - providing support to employees and the Human Resources team on matters that contribute to and impact our employees' work experience.
The Human Resources Coordinator serves as the primary point of contact for inquiries to the Human Resources Office and is responsible for creating a welcoming and engaging experience for employees, visitors and guests. The Coordinator handles a range of administrative tasks including: reception, triaging/directing inquiries, calendar management, organizing meetings/interviews, HR database maintenance and reporting, recruitment activities (scheduling interviews, advertising), managing onboarding/offboarding processes, research and maintaining personnel files; generally, keeping a pulse on all activities within the office. The position reports to the Director of Human Resources.
Bennington serves a diverse student population inclusive of members of ethnically/racially minoritized, international, LGBTQIA+, and disability communities as well as diverse gender identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, and political beliefs. Our staff and faculty also reflect diverse and intersecting backgrounds and identities. All employees are expected to be respectful and responsive to these differences in the service of building community that promotes student and employee success. Each individual (faculty, staff and students) will be accountable for upholding these values. The College's approach to pluralism and inclusivity—both as fields of inquiry and practice—is to prioritize flexible thought, and to invite the examination of access, value, power, and privilege through its institutional policies and areas of study. We encourage applicants from diverse realms of interest, backgrounds, experience, and accomplishment to apply.

The capacity for clear, thoughtful communication and an eagle eye for detail are crucial. The position requires the ability to prioritize competing work and deadlines while producing accurate work and an ability to handle sensitive and confidential information with discretion.
The position requires demonstrated 1-5 years' administrative experience working in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment; bachelor's degree and human resources experience preferred. Candidates must have experience working with diverse populations and evidence a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
