Embark (verb) to make, start or begin
We are a Dallas-based financial consulting firm founded by a non-accountant, entrepreneur challenging the status quo. We believe people can actually love their jobs, work hard, AND enjoy having a life. Our mission is to provide peace of mind to corporate finance & business leaders, and we take it very seriously. As we strive to bring a new twist to the professional services work, our people and culture REALLY do determine our decisions and our future. We're growing quickly, but not at the expense of our culture or people.

Who we’re looking for
To excel in this role, you’ll need to be a self-starter who is ready to perform on day one. You’ll need to be adaptable, and come in with ideas, suggestions, and the attitude that you’re willing to try just about anything. In a small team like ours, everyone wears a lot of hats, and nothing is “not your job.” The environment is dynamic, so you’ll also need to be flexible and adaptable to change as we grow.

What you will be doing
As a member of embark’s people team your overarching goal is to support the business in accomplishing our vision to be the best possible place for all embarkers to work.
Our people team accomplishes this by working with all other embark teams to ensure that every embarker feels cared for, is developed holistically (think professionally and personally) and has all the resources necessary to grow and tackle hard challenges while at embark. Throughout every embarker’s journey, from the moment we attract the future team member to the last day we wish them farewell, the people team strives to create an engaging experience that allows each embarker to flourish and do what they’re uniquely wired to do.

Your focus as the people development senior manager will be to create and deliver an unparalleled development program for our embarkers so that they grow and reach their full potential. Designing, creating and then implementing content for the various development pathways will be your main focus. With a digital first lens, you’ll deliver some trainings in person and some will be consumed on-demand. Our embarkers are thirsty for knowledge and we’re excited to create engaging and informative trainings for them. Whether we create the content in house or leverage existing third party content, your long term goal will be to create and curate a library of learning for all embarkers, so that we can continue to provide our clients with excellent service.

You’ll be both collaborating with other embarkers who are subject matter experts and drawing on concepts and principles from thought leaders outside embark.
