Does the idea of creating a positive impact on our world excite you? Would you like to work in a tightly-knit team where mutual respect and integrity are among core values? Do you have what it takes to build and grow the human capital of a life-saving organisation? We are looking for a dynamic HR Manager with a passion for learning, development and evaluation to join our mission-driven team.

SaveLIFE Foundation (SLF) is on a mission to save lives on roads across India. Since 2012, over 1.5 million people have been killed in road crashes in India and close to 5 million have been left seriously injured or permanently disabled. Besides the insurmountable emotional trauma that thousands of families must suffer each year, road crashes deal a crushing economic blow to many families.

SLF is a fast-growing, specialised organisation with a proven track record of delivering large-scale impact. We are best known for getting India its Good Samaritan Law and developing the “Zero-Fatality Corridor” solution to transform dangerous highways into “safe ways”. We are registered as a not-for-profit organisation to ensure complete mission alignment.

Our teams work in a creative environment to build novel solutions and thrive on problem-solving. Over the last 15 years, we have built unique strengths in areas such as forensic investigation of crashes, data analytics and predictive modelling, safety design and engineering, public policy formulation, and strategic communication and training. We strive for excellence in everything we do and build leaders through opportunity and mentorship.
