[boldintro]Our sister organization, Halftime Talent Solutions, is partnering with Opportunity International to find their next Chief Human Resources Officer. [/boldintro]

Opportunity International is a global non-profit organization that helps people in developing nations break the cycle of poverty, transform their lives, strengthen their families and improve their communities. The organization currently provides loans, savings programs, insurance and other financial services and training to more than 5 million clients in 22 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Clients use our services to expand businesses, provide for their families, create jobs and build a safety net for the future. Opportunity International also operates a network of 45 banks and financial institutions.

Opportunity’s Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), Connie Stryjak, is retiring this fall, and they have engaged Halftime Talent Solutions in the challenging task of identifying her successor.  Based in the Oakbrook, IL headquarters for Opportunity, the CHRO reports to the Global CEO, Vicki Escarra, and holds a central role as a member of the global leadership team in building and shaping the organization’s leadership and culture. The next CHRO will build strong relationships with each Member CEO and HR leaders across this global organization, as well as oversee the more traditional HR responsibilities of hiring, retaining, and coaching the best talent available to further Opportunity’s Mission. He or she will develop and execute the annual HR operating plan, including metrics and analytics to measure value, efficiency and effectiveness.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated an ascending career of senior HR leadership as a value partner in executive leadership of one or more global enterprise.  With a broad HR generalist perspective and significant experience in leading and managing teams that serve internal customers with international talent acquisition needs, prospective candidates will have a clear understanding of the variations in talent strategy required in different regions of the world.  Leadership of a decentralized global HR team in a complex corporate and/or NGO settings is also highly desirable. Experience working in the financial services/banking is helpful, but not a requirement.
