In the weeks since a string of high-profile hires at ICA — including two senior managers and the president — the institute has taken a new look at its hiring practices.
ICA has seen its workforce grow to nearly 1,000 full-time employees in just the last few years.
The institute also hired a new president and its chief financial officer in March, after years of layoffs.
ICA is now hiring for both full- and part-time positions, and some positions are also in the process of being filled with experienced talent, the organization said in a statement.
“We’re proud of the achievements we’ve made in recent years,” said ICA President Jim Smith in a news release.
“In many ways, ICA has been the poster child for what a truly great job can be, as evidenced by our number of high profile hires in recent months.”
Smith, who is based in San Antonio, said that he and his team are working hard to ensure the institute is as successful as possible moving forward.
“I’m confident we can bring the ICA experience and the talent of our faculty and staff to a world-class institute and ensure that our alumni will continue to thrive,” Smith said.
A job description for a part-timers position posted on the institute’s website says the position is for a “senior manager” who will work with senior staff on the Institute’s research, operations and fundraising teams.
The job is expected to last up to two years, with an annual salary of $50,000, according to the job posting.
For a position with full-timing duties, the job description also says the person would be responsible for maintaining the institute “in the best interests of its alumni.”
In an interview with ABC News, ICT’s president said he wants to create a “great place for alumni to work,” and to provide “the best possible opportunities for alumni and their families.”
“We want to create this world-renowned institute, where alumni have the opportunity to live their life and do things that they love,” Smith told ABC News.
“We’re trying to create an institute that is in the best interest of its people, so that alumni have opportunities to be part of a world class research institute.”
The institute is currently recruiting a new CEO.
