Director of Human Resources

Tigard-Tualatin District


Tigard-Tualatin School District seeks its next HR Leader.

Tigard Tualatin School District (TTSD) seeks an experienced human resources leader to guide and manage an exceptional team. Our new Director of Human Resources will lead strategic initiatives focused on attracting, hiring, supporting, and retaining student-centered, racially, linguistically, and culturally diverse employees. This includes systematic staff training, a strong mentoring program, and a focus on a comprehensive staff wellness program in support of the district’s commitment to equitable educational outcomes. The 5th largest district in the greater Portland metropolitan area, we serve more than 12,000 students in 11 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 comprehensive high schools, an online academy, and an alternative high school – TTSD is large enough to provide a comprehensive academic program and small enough to maintain close connections to staff, students, parents, and the community.

The growing communities of Tigard, Tualatin, Durham, Metzger, and King City make up Tigard-Tualatin School District. Located next to the city of Portland, the district offers the benefits of suburban living within a vibrant metropolitan area. It is 90 minutes from theOregon coast and an hour’s drive to Mt. Hood. There is convenient access to the region’s vast recreational, cultural, and educational resources. Tigard is home to the Tigard hot air Balloon Festival, great shopping, outdoor recreation, and the Broadway Rose professional musical theater company. Tualatin boasts 280 miles of award-winning parks, trails, and natural areas as well as its own self guided ArtWalk revealing the city’s diverse collection of public art. These communities are family-oriented and engaged in the life of the schools.

The Director of Human Resources is a key member of the District’s leadership team, reporting directly to the Superintendent. We seek a visionary, strategic, equity-focused, and empathetic leader, who demonstrates integrity and respect for others, and who understands the impact HR can make in cultivating talent and creating a thriving workplace culture. If you are mission driven, inspired by the opportunity to make a difference, and are excited about working for an organization that serves the needs of students of all backgrounds, please explore this opportunity. Our successful candidate will bring:

  • At least 5 years’ experience in human resources management, with experience in the educational environment preferred
  • A bachelor’s degree in education, human resources, public administration or a related field, and professional HR certification (pHCLE, SPHR, or SHRM-SCP)
  • Broad knowledge and comprehensive experience in the areas of employment law administration, benefits and compensation, collective bargaining, employee relations and training

Our job posting closes on Monday, February 6 at 12:00 pm Pacific time. Confidential inquiries to Robyn Bean at Human Capital Enterprises are welcome.

This is a tremendous opportunity to lead within a dynamic team that is committed to great work on behalf of all students.
