Boston Globe Media is New England's largest newsgathering organization -- and much more. We are committed to being an indispensable, trusted, reliable source of round-the-clock information. Through the powerful journalism from our newsroom, engaging content from our content marketing studio, or through targeted advertising solutions, brands and marketers rely on us to reach highly engaged, educated and influential audiences through a variety of media and experiences.

As people are our greatest asset, we are looking for a Head of People and Culture to lead the people operations side of The Boston Globe.

  • A talent acquisition leader with the industry knowledge and chops to help us find not just the best people, but the right ones. 
  • Eager to develop training and coaching programs in order to make us better. You recognize that there is always room for growth and a science for doing so. 
  • Adaptable and embracing of change. Media is a fast-paced industry — we’re in business of keeping up with it.
  • Tech-savvy and able to thrive in an entrepreneurial environment with a "role up your sleeves" mentality. A good sense of humor is also key.
  • Passionate about The Globe’s content, and enthusiastic about promoting everything Boston.

You will:

  •  Continue to build upon our existing workplace culture. You will take us to the next level. 
  •  Build and develop all other People Strategy initiatives, including performance reviews, training and development programs, as well as employee engagement surveys and action plans, just to name a few. 
  •  Serve as the “Chief Mentorship Officer”, providing support to Globe employees at all stages of their career.
  •  Keep a finger to the pulse on employee productivity and role satisfaction. 
  •  Operate at the highest levels of integrity to build trust with every member of The Globe.
