Senior Consultant 🔥

We are currently hiring a full-time, senior consultant to contribute immediately to at least two client engagements, in close collaboration with other CIMA consultants. Responsibilities include: 

  • Managing the direction of two client engagements. This includes: 
  • Providing top-tier project management, becoming a trusted strategic partner for our clients’ senior staff.
  • Writing compelling narratives for letters of inquiry, proposals, and other collateral; working with clients to understand their organization and desired voice.
  • Identifying funding opportunities through online research, phone calls, and email follow-up.
  • Ensuring CIMA meets goals and client expectations through careful internal tracking of progress, application deadlines, and reporting requirements.
  • Managing and supporting growth of one or more CIMA team members on each client engagement, ensuring CIMA exceeds client expectations.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Proven success in a client-facing project or account management role, and/or a track record of relationship building and accountability.
  • At least five years’ of experience in grant writing and/or other development functions, a bachelor's degree, or other equivalent experience in persuasive writing.

  • Proven ability to organize and synthesize large amounts of information into compelling written collateral on deadline.
  • Experience using standard office software/platforms (Excel, Drive, Airtable, etc).

Qualities we consider essential for CIMA team members:

  • Extremely organized and self-motivated, able to prioritize multiple deadlines
  • Excellent interpersonal skills (communication and relationship building)
  • Willing to collaborate, take direction and ask thoughtful questions, then work independently to complete tasks
  • Keen writing, editing, and proofreading skills
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-moving, intellectual environment, with the feel of a start-up; willingness to listen, collaborate, and seize opportunities for growth
  • Flexibility, dedication, and the ability to laugh at one’s self (and others, but only in a nice way)
  • An understanding and appreciation of DEI principles
