About this role

Our mission at BlackRock is to create a better financial future for our clients. And to achieve our mission, we are building a different kind of brand in the world of finance, one squarely rooted in our purpose of helping more and more people experience financial well-being. We know investor expectations, behaviors, and perceptions are changing - and at BlackRock, we see this as opportunity. An opportunity to challenge businesses to reach higher standards. An opportunity to use technology to think beyond what's possible. An opportunity to provide investment solutions for every need. And an opportunity to simplify a complex world - and help investors chart a path to financial health.

The BlackRock Human Resources team strives to transform the human resources function in the same way we are transforming access to financial well-being. We are students of the market and technology that are passionate about finding, growing and retaining the best talent to help deliver on the firm's purpose to help more people build a strong financial future.

Our HR Business Partners live our values, understand how our culture comes to life, and possess a deep knowledge of the business and delivery of all HR services to internal client groups to drive outstanding performance. You will learn the business and culture inside and out so that you are able to provide strategic HR partnership to senior leaders and teams within Aperio (part of BlackRock) to enhance their growth and impact.

The ideal candidate has a passion for solving complex challenges and gets excited about leveraging technology to address talent priorities. You will work on key initiatives and projects in areas such as talent development, employee relations, culture, and diversity in addition to managing annual talent processes. This is a great opportunity to be a change agent in a fast-paced, growing, environment.

At Aperio, our strategies are designed to put our clients' and their clients' interests at the center of our investment advice; to minimize costs and taxes; and to incorporate each client's unique environmental, social, and governance (ESG) preferences. We are a purposefully growing quantitative/index-tracking investment management business specializing in managing customized equity portfolios tax efficiently. At Aperio, we work hard and move quickly as a well-coordinated, collaborative team whose exceptional people are focused on providing extraordinary client service. In your role, you will deliver the same white glove service to the team. If you are looking for an opportunity to grow and contribute in a fun, industry-disruptive, fast-paced environment, Aperio is the place for you. Aperio is a small, agile and serviced oriented team that works closely together to deliver great client service.

We'll trust you to:
  • Play a role in the design and execution of talent projects in support of our business strategy and operational priorities.
  • Provide advice and guidance on various topics including performance management, leadership development, compensation, succession planning, coaching, and talent reviews.

  • Partner with HR functional teams such as Employee Relations, Talent Acquisition, etc. to execute on business priorities and solutions.

You need to have:
