Chautauqua Institution is a not-for-profit global convener of dialogue on the most significant issues of the day through engagement across four pillars of the arts, education, religion, and recreation. The Chautauqua community is located on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York State and comes alive each summer with a unique mix of visual and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship/programs, and recreational activities. The Institution has just recently passed a strategic plan (150 Forward) that endeavors to expand its reach to year-round programming and to harness its brand for continuous impact. A new Washington, DC, office has opened to allow the Institution to play an ongoing role in the cultural conversations of the nation.
Chautauqua Institution's mission is dedicated to the exploration of the best in human values and the enrichment of life through a program that explores the important religious, social, and political issues of our times; stimulates provocative, thoughtful involvement of individuals and families in creative response to such issues; and promotes excellence and creativity in the appreciation, performance, and teaching of the arts.
Interested applicants must submit a resume and writing sample, typically a cover letter, (as a single .PDF) for consideration. You are encouraged to learn more about Chautauqua Institution at CHQ.org and the 150 Forward Strategic Plan at 150fwd.CHQ.org.
The Recruitment & Talent Manager will report to and strategically partner with the Director of Human Resources on design of a comprehensive human capital management plan and workforce planning solutions to recruit, develop, and retain a diverse workforce that encompasses all the skills and experience necessary to deliver on Chautauqua Institution’s long-term strategic vision and to provide an environment that positions the organization as an ‘employer of choice’ on a national stage.
