Take your career to the next level with Salo

Being a Salo Expert™ consultant gives you freedom and flexibility. You get to pick the kind of work you want to do, where you’ll work, and when you want to do it. Unlike an HR staffing agency or HR recruiting company, our goal isn’t getting you a one-time gig. Our goal is helping you build a rewarding, meaningful consulting career that leads to the lifestyle you want.

Interested? The Salo talent team will help you every step of the way.

Are you a Salo Expert consultant?

We look for HR professionals with at least 10 years of HR experience who are:

  • Problem solvers
  • Subject matter experts
  • Adaptable collaborators
  • Voracious learners
  • Fast relationship-builders
