The Hutchinson Centre Research Institute of South Africa (HCRISA), a non-profit subsidiary of U.S.-based Fred Hutch, was incorporated in March 2012. HCRISA employs South Africa-based staff carrying out the programs of Fred Hutch and the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). HCRISA has two locations in South Africa: the Cape Town HVTN Immunology Laboratory (CHIL) and a smaller group located in Johannesburg that is utilized by a team frequently traveling to offsite clinics.
HCRISA is looking to hire a Human Resources Practitioner to provide general human resources support to a small dynamic and physically dispersed organization that is rapidly growing. Expertise in multiple HR areas and access to a network of HR professionals is required. This position will be based in either Cape Town or Johannesburg with travel to between the two locations 2-3 times per month. The Practitioner will report directly to the Laboratory Director in Cape Town and liaise closely with the Seattle-based HR team and Program staff.
