SBA Openings: In-house HR Specialist & business analyst / project manager

SBA is looking to hire two positions: 1) an in-house associate and HR specialist who can help with our internal and external recruitments, HR support services, and in-house payroll/personnel tasks, and 2) an aviation expert who can serve as an in-house analyst for our growing client work. 

As we continue to grow our business, including our HR services division, SBA is seeking to hire an associate  with 5 - 8 years of HR and personnel administration experience to assist with external and internal recruitment, HR support services, payroll, and personnel and related tasks. 

We are also accepting resumes for a position to assist with our growing client analysis work. We are looking for someone with
