SWAN Vancouver is a non-profit organization with offices located on the stolen ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish & Tsleil-Waututh Nations; our work takes us to and through the unceded territories of many other Nations. Through frontline services and systemic advocacy, SWAN promotes the rights, health, and safety of im/migrant women who are engaged in indoor sex work. Centering safety, rights, self-determination, equity, and integrity, SWAN is an anti-racist, intersectional feminist organization that prioritizes the voices, lived realities, and needs of the im/migrant women we serve. All of the women accessing SWAN’s services are racialized, and our service and work are strongly influenced by multiple and varied intersections that im/migrant women experience in their lives, including race, class, age, socioeconomic and immigration status, language, and ability.
SWAN is looking for a Human Resources Manager who loves building organizational culture and infrastructure in an advocacy and service provision context. SWAN has recently gone through a period of significant growth. You, the ideal candidate, are excited to lead the evolution of our systems, policies, and practices to meet our growing needs. You are a collaborative and thoughtful leader who communicates clearly and honestly, engages people in planning and decision-making processes, and translates your commitment to intersectional feminism and anti-racism into operational reality.
The Human Resources Manager will lead the human resources and day-to-day office management within a small non-profit team (currently 8-10 staff). To succeed in this role, the Human Resources Manager must be a strong manager and have a collaborative approach to leadership. The ability to work effectively with people from various abilities, life situations, and cultural backgrounds is also critical.
SWAN recognizes that people from communities who experience structural marginalization and oppression (e.g., on the basis of gender, ethnicity, citizenship/immigration status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, involvement in sex work) may be less likely to apply for managerial positions. We strongly encourage you to apply if you have a passion for SWAN’s mission and meet the required qualifications and competencies. Applicants with lived experience in sex work, im/migration and/or the migrant work sector will be given preference. Please note that it is SWAN’s policy to never require public disclosure of sex work experience.
QUALIFICATIONS & COMPETENCIES:
We strongly encourage you to apply if you have a passion for SWAN’s mission and meet the below requirements:

The hiring team may adapt the selection process as needed in order to understand candidates’ potential to succeed in this role.

Only shortlisted applications will be contacted. We ask that candidates do not call the office. We thank all candidates for their interest and time in applying to the position.
We hope that the successful candidate will be available to start as soon as possible, but will be flexible for the right person (for example, if the candidate would need to relocate from another community).
