Big Wave’s Chris Englin doesn’t only work and live in the Seattle community, she serves it every day. She regularly volunteers her time and resources for mission-driven nonprofits that have a significant impact on the local community—particularly those serving diverse, at-risk, and underrepresented groups—in sectors including healthcare, education, housing, and child welfare. She also makes high-quality HR recruitment more accessible to deserving organizations.

What motivates her: a passionate belief that everyone should have equal access to life’s necessities and opportunities.

Nonprofit organizations loyally serve our communities and are vital to the Pacific Northwest ecosystem. While these organizations typically don’t have the time or resources to focus on HR staffing, they deserve to be able to hire the best. That’s why Big Wave offers Human Resources recruitment services to nonprofits at a reduced rate —and why we focus on placing people who truly believe in and will advance the nonprofit’s mission.
