Who You Are
You’re knowledgeable in multiple human resource disciplines, including employee engagement and retention, organizational development, employee relations, and performance management. You’re a people person known for your productive and harmonious working relationships. You’re capable of flying high and being a strategic player in one breath and flying low and diving deep down into the nitty gritty in the next. You thrive in a creative, fast-paced, team environment, and you are able to juggle multiple, competing priorities and switch gears quickly. You are a strong problem-solver and builder of new programs and thinking that will contribute to the growth and success of the company. You are highly self-motivated and are looking to further your career while making the world a slightly better place.
Who We Are
Civilian is a different kind of marketing communications agency. From our headquarters in San Diego to our offices in Sacramento and DC, we are dedicated to improving quality of life for our employees, clients, and the world. We are a purpose-driven certified B Corporation focused on tackling challenging issues, creating positive change, and strengthening communities. We do this by working with nonprofits, government agencies, and purpose-driven organizations to promote environmental sustainability, advance public health, and support economic development.
We are a dedicated group of innovators and problem solvers who come to work every day grateful for the opportunity to make a difference. We support our employees’ professional and personal development with a rich set of benefits, humane working hours, and a culture that rewards embracing challenges and having a great time doing it. The success of our approach shows in our average employee tenure of nearly five years (vs. the industry average of 2.5) and in the number of Civilians that return. We offer a truly unique balance of professionalism and heart—and an office full of free snacks, a dog or two, and the occasional afternoon happy hour.
