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. We are dedicated to understanding the true needs of our clients and working with them to identify optimum solutions tailored to address those needs.
What we are looking for
For our Edmonton and Victoria offices we are looking for junior and mid-tier business management consultants with demonstrated experience leading and supporting projects in public and private sector organizations. You have experience in general consulting services, including change management, planning, facilitation and project management at a minimum. Additional experience in procurement, evaluation, communications and other disciplines is considered an asset. All our staff are expected to be actively engaged in business development, so an understanding and experience with nurturing and landing new business. This includes having some exposure to 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. This is a place for the people who are committed to providing the best results, the perfectionists, the people who are energized by challenges. 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 here. Consulting is hard and challenging work. We produce and deliver a significant amount for our clients. They 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 be actively engaged on 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
- Exceptional writing skills and the ability to self-edit
- The ability to follow instructions, pay meticulous attention to details and understand why that matters
- A commitment to going the extra mile and 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:
- 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
- Don’t live in the Edmonton or Victoria regions. Most work is done at the offices or at nearby client sites.
- 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”
What we want to hear from you
If this sounds like the kind of organization you see yourself thriving in, then let’s have a conversation. Send us a 1 or 2-page resume along with a 1-page cover letter by email (no phone calls please) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your cover letter will include:
- A summary of why you and Elevate are meant for each other
- A clear understanding of what your expectations are for the value you are bringing
- Your expectations around compensation (not “salary is negotiable”)
- Which office – Edmonton or Victoria – you want to join
We thank all applicants for your interest; however, only candidates under consideration will be contacted. Short-listed candidates will be asked to complete a brief sample assignment demonstrating your analytical and writing skills.
