Who are we?
Elevate is a business management consulting firm. This means we help our clients solve problems. We provide a wide range of services including planning, organizational transformation, change management, stakeholder engagement, procurement and more. We work on both small short-term projects and large multi-year complex projects.
What we are looking for
We are looking for a mid-tier Management Consultant for our Edmonton office, with at least 5 years of experience leading and supporting projects in public and private sector organizations. You should have, at a minimum, experience in general consulting services, including change management, planning, facilitation and project management. Additional experience in procurement, evaluation, communications and other disciplines is considered an asset. Consultants are expected to be actively engaged in business development, nurturing and landing new business. This includes having direct experience responding to procurement vehicles like RFP’s and RFQ’s.
Why would you want to work at Elevate?
You need a passion for service to work here. Our greatest joy is seeing others succeed. We take pride in providing quality work and we have a lot of fun doing it. We don’t believe in the traditional definition of work/life balance – we focus more on flexibility. We love our work and believe it is one of the things that gives meaning to life. This isn’t a “job” – it is a way of life. This is a place for the people that agonize over providing the best results, the perfectionists, the people who get their energy and passion from a challenge.
What does it mean to work here?
We are an organization dedicated to understanding the true needs of our clients and working with them to identify the optimum solution tailored to address that need. If you think being a consultant is all about going to meetings and telling people what you think they should do, then you won’t fit in at Elevate. Consulting is hard and challenging work. Our consultants are expected to produce and deliver a significant amount for our clients. Our clients expect a lot from us and we demand a lot from our team members. We are a small firm so every team member is expected to actively be engaged in leading or supporting projects, from project management to facilitation to the creation of deliverables, and everything in between. But do we ever love it!
What kind of people do we want to hire?
We’re interested in meeting you if you have:
- Critical thinking skills
- Emotional and social intelligence
- A strong attention to detail
- A commitment to going the extra mile
- Excellent writing skills
- An obsession for delivering on quality
- A genuine curiosity and the ability to solve complex problems
In the interest of your time and ours, we’d prefer you don’t apply if you:
- Are a consultant who isn’t interested in doing delivery and product development
- Can’t type, or don’t know your way around office products – we spend a lot of time in front of a computer developing materials for our clients
- Are focused on simply getting the work done rather than getting the work done right
- Can’t handle multiple competing priorities
- Aren’t comfortable in a self-starting, autonomous environment
- Like the sound of your own voice more than the clients’
- Think consulting is “easy”
