Part-Time Human Resources Director Wanted

Silver Knights Chess has a part-time opening for an HR Director.  The job starts at 10 hours per week.  Over time, it may increase in hours, possibly to a full-time position.  It includes:

- Screening chess-teaching applicants
- Interviewing applicants
- Running criminal background checks on applicants

- Doing reference checks on applicants

- Evaluating new instructors and aids

- General administrative work for chess tournaments, camps, and classes

The hours are flexible and the pay is negotiable.  Most of the work would be done out of our office in Vienna, VA, although some travel to local schools is required and some of the work could potentially be done from home.  Some qualifications that would be helpful (but are not required) are:

- Prior experience with HR work
- Prior experience with elementary school kids
- Some basic knowledge of chess (we are more interested in someone that knows about "chess culture" than someone that is a rated player; if you have kids that play in tournaments and you understand how they work, that's enough)
- College education

Most of all, we are looking for a bright, outgoing person with a great attitude that is excited to work in scholastic chess.  We have lots of great ideas for where we want to take scholastic chess in the DMV area, and we're looking for someone that shares that enthusiasm.  This job could be perfect for a parent looking to re-enter the workplace as the kids get older (especially if the kids play chess!).
