The Position

The Virginia Retirement System (VRS) seeks a human resources leader who is visionary, collaborative, focused on organizational development, committed to exceptional customer service, and a strategic partner for the agency’s leadership.

The Human Resources Director oversees all human resources functions within VRS. These functions include the following: talent acquisition and retention, classification and compensation (including separate pay and incentive plans for the investment professionals and investment operations and administration employees), benefits administration, mediation and employee relations, organizational development and training, compliance with applicable employment laws, records management, onboarding and orientation, consulting, coaching and counseling, performance management, professional development and training, internal communications, and employee recognition.

The Human Resources Director reports to the Director of VRS and manages a seven-person department, with a budget of approximately $1 million. 

The current organizational structure includes a Human Resources Administrator, two Senior Human Resources Analysts, a Senior Human Resources Business Analyst (Communications and Intranet), and a Human Resources Manager, all of whom are direct reports to the Human Resources Director. Two part-time staff members also report to the Human Resources Administrator.

The salary range for this position is $130,000 - $150,000, depending on qualifications. Benefits offered include paid time off, the VRS retirement plan, a deferred compensation plan, health benefits and flexible spending program, life insurance, telework and flexible work schedules, relocation assistance, tuition reimbursement, state employee discounts, on-site parking, and more.
