Talent Inventory Consultant

Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is an INGO, founded in 1976, devoted to the elimination of substandard housing from the face of the earth. It operates in partnership with a federated network of national organizations, branches and partners in more than 70 countries around the world.

Recently, the Habitat network has embarked on an ambitious change strategy (Global Impact 2025 (GI25)) aimed at tripling the network’s impact on the world’s least developed economies. In line with that strategy, Habitat seeks to improve its performance in the Mekong Region and the sustainability of its operations in this critical part of the network. Key to this is Habitat’s ability to attract and retain talent to drive our growth in the region.

The purpose of this consultancy will be as follows:

  • To identify the existing capabilities (functional and leadership skills) that Habitat for Humanity has in the Asia Pacific Office and in the three Mekong Region’s national offices - Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity, founded in 1976, is a global, Christian-based nonprofit organization that grew out of an intentionally multi-racial community in rural Georgia. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat brings together people of all faiths and people of no faith to build homes, communities and hope. Working alongside each other, we help families and individuals build and improve places to call home and achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Habitat seeks individuals who have a willingness to affirm these principles and values.

At Habitat for Humanity International, we embrace a history rooted in creating equity and take our mission seriously by courageously committing to a culture and workplace where all staff feel safe, welcome, visible, respected, supported and valued. As an equal opportunity employer, we realize that our success depends upon building an inclusive workforce of diverse perspectives and encourage people of varied races, ethnicities, national origins, tribes, religions, ages, gender identities and expressions, genders, sexual orientations, marital statuses, disabilities, veteran/reserve national guard statuses, socio-economic statuses, thinking and communication styles to work with us.

We also require that all staff take seriously their ethical responsibilities to safeguarding our intended beneficiaries, their communities (especially children), and all those with whom we work. In line with the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse, all staff must pass a thorough background screening and will be held accountable to upholding our policies around ethical behavior, including safeguarding and whistleblowing.
