HR Consultant - Alternative HR, LLC

Part-time human resource consulting opportunity (could grow to full-time)!

We don't offer a normal corporate HR career-track. We do HR differently, which requires that you not only be an HR pro, but you must also juggle, pivot, consult, coach and collaborate! You will primarily work with employers who have no HR professional on staff. Our HR Consultants enjoy the challenge and autonomy that comes with this opportunity, the flexibility and life-first balance the position provides, and the trust and appreciation of both co-workers and clients.  

  • If you have a knack for helping those around you excel, you might be interested in this opportunity.
  • If you have a combination of empathy, problem-solving abilities, and confidence, you'll be even more interested.
  • If you are able to give advise directly, yet tactfully, that's even better.
  • And, if you can keep up with a high performing team of HR pros who collaborate, support and encourage one another, we are interested in you! 

Alternative HR provides outsourced HR on an as-needed, fractional or interim basis, depending on clients' needs. Our HR Consultants work on a strategic level with business owners and CEOs, but they also do the heavy lifting when our clients need to find, develop and lead people, comply with laws and regulations, and create a work environment where individuals and organizations can excel. While based in Sioux Falls, we work with clients and their employees wherever they are located. In a normal week, you will work with multiple employers and projects, interact with front-line employees, CEO's and business owners, and have opportunities to make real impact in the organizations we serve.
