Candidates for Interim HR Director
Central Lakes College is exploring the possibility of hiring someone from within the system to work part-time to get us through the transition and continue our budget savings. This individual’s work would mirror Nancy’s, spending no less than 3 days per week on our campuses, focusing on labor relations and contract issues, community building, and working with the HR staff through the HR-TSM transition. In 12-18 months, we would have a much better sense of our full-time needs and intend to search for a permanent, full-time position. The interim director would not be a candidate for the position. This interim director would begin on January 1 and continue for 18 months. Open Forum sessions will be held Tuesday, October 24 from 12-1 at Staples Campus, and 3:30-4:30 at the Brainerd Campus.
12:00pm 1:00pm Open Forum, Staples Campus room B205
3:30pm-4:30pm Open Forum, Brainerd Campus room C236
