HR Manager

Den Haag



This role offers a unique opportunity to be part of an organization that empowers ambitious entrepreneurs around the world in building a structurally better future for their communities. And as an experienced people and culture manager and head of the HR department you will contribute by helping to professionalise the organisation.   


All around the world, local communities are flourishing. Powered by the passion and expertise of entrepreneurs who dedicate themselves to making a real difference each day. At PUM the goal is to amplify and accelerate the positive impact they make. With over 1,200 volunteers, who are sharing their professional expertise in more than 30 countries worldwide, and about 45 colleagues who are working from the office in The Hague, PUM drives local positive impact on a global scale. They believe in the power of collaboration and in the magic that happens when diverse perspectives meet. “Together we grow”.


As a vital member of the PUM community, your role is both dynamic and rewarding. You play a key role in the organisation and of course the HR department. What a day in the office will look like for you as a HR Manager? Just to name a few responsibilities, you:

  • Introduce new HR initiatives that strengthen PUM’s mission and goals – and you make them work (looking outwards, making connections and leadership are essential).  
  • Steer on the annual HR plan. 
  • Interact frequently with the board and MT colleagues on HR matters. 
  • Coach and lead the HR team and a team of voluntary trainers. 
  • Further develop the organisational structure, leadership and culture.
  • Stimulate organisational diversity and create policies on inclusion. 
  • Represent PUM and increase the involvement of employees and volunteers.  


  • You are an enthusiastic and motivated people manager eager to set goals, with a Bachelor or Master degree in HR or other relevant education.  
  • You have at least ten years of work experience in a similar role, responsible for HR and managing a team in an international context.  
  • You bring expertise as a CEO’s and COO’s strategic sparring partner.  
  • You want to contribute and develop to strategic decisions and act as a linking pin between the management team and the organisation in complex dynamics. 
  • You integrate outcome-focused work with people-centered approaches. 
  • You have knowledge (and love!) for working with SDGs or development cooperation.  
  • You have excellent communication skills and preferably experience in working with volunteers.  
  • You have excellent command of the English and Dutch language. 
  • You are comfortable with the use of digital tools, including Microsoft Office 365.
