The Challenge

Are you passionate about helping organizations understand and reach their goals? Do you live for that “ah-ha!” moment when your client realizes you just showed them how to transform their organization? Many organizations know where they want to go, but getting there can be a challenge. We’re looking for you: a strategy consultant who can identify an organization’s long-term goals and show it how to achieve them.

This is an opportunity to have a direct impact on government clients. As a Strategy Consultant on our team, you’ll engage with client staff to research and analyze their organization’s needs, goals, and potential growth areas. You’ll need to ask the right questions to draw out your client’s objectives and vision. You’ll provide analytical support to your team as they show clients their organization from the outside. From unrealized potential to systemic challenges, your team will provide your client with a holistic view of their organization and the multiple paths they can take to evolve and improve their capabilities. Join us as we lead change for the better in the government.

Empower change with us.
