The Opportunity

St. Paul’s School’s Director of Human Resources will serve in an important leadership role as the School continues advancing its programs, policies and employees in support of the new head of school’s strategic initiatives. The School seeks a Director who can help marshal the full power of the School’s talented faculty and staff to drive continued meaningful evolution in the School’s culture and working environment.

St. Paul’s School

Founded in 1856, St. Paul’s School is a coeducational, highly academic, fully residential boarding school for grades 9 through 12 located in Concord, NH on an historic 2,000-acre campus. Offering a rigorous, values-based education, the School unites a diverse and inclusive learning community of approximately 530 students and 330 faculty and staff members to create an extended family which respects and nurtures individual talent, personal freedom and responsibility, intellectual curiosity, and public service. The new Rector joined in 2019, and under her leadership the School is poised for continued and expanded success as one of the nation’s premier boarding schools.

The Position

Reporting to the Chief Operating and Financial Officer, the Director of Human Resources is responsible for supporting the mission and strategic goals of the School by managing the human resources functions in ways that promote the School’s values and contribute to a diverse, inclusive, and supportive School community and climate.
