Bryant Munoz, Human Resources Business Partner

Meet Bryant Munoz!

As Hermosa’s Human Resources Business Partner, a typical day for Bryant Munoz involves working with Hermosa’s leadership and providing guidance on job descriptions, progression planning, exit interviews, promotion and offer approvals, and employee issues. He also represents South32 at events such as the recent Me+ Medical & Engineering Job Expo at the Tucson Convention Center. “As Hermosa grows, we need to fill roles so we’re often out in the community and at events telling everyone about us and the opportunities we can offer.”

With a recruiting background in numerous industries such as information technology, utility and construction, Bryant started at South32 as a Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist in 2023 and within seven months, he got the opportunity to be an HR Business Partner, to help develop new skills & his career. “I would say that there has been a huge learning curve for me in this position, it has created discomfort, since there have been moments where I don’t know the answers to questions on the spot and I’ve had to stretch myself to find solutions and answers. However, it is a good discomfort that has been challenging me to learn something new every day. I have great support from my leadership and team, in growing and gaining more human resource knowledge.”

To someone wanting to join the mining industry, Bryant advises, “first and foremost apply to a position, it could be outside or inside of your skillset. You really don’t know what the hiring manager and the team is searching for in a new candidate. It could very possibly be skillset, or it could be personality. The important thing is to be excited about the role and show that you have done research on the company. Mining companies are willing to teach new employees develop new skillsets. I studied Criminal Justice at Bethune-Cookman University and went into an industry I never imagined working in.”

Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, Bryant enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys. Specifically grilling out in his backyard and smoking different types of meats. He also enjoys playing softball and learning about finances.
