ABOUT ENVISION CONSULTING:
We are a boutique consulting firm specializing in services to the not-for-profit sector. We are based in Pasadena and work with nonprofit clients nationwide. With more than 100 engagements per year spanning search, strategy, and marketing engagements, we are a small team dedicated to impacting the sector, one outstanding project at a time. We are data-driven, technology-savvy, and growing fast. We’re running a high-energy enterprise focused on business development and process design for non-profits in critical leadership transitions. We build leaders in the nonprofit industry, which means we need to be leaders ourselves – we’re nimble, we’re industrious, and we are always building and innovating.

THE JOB EXPERIENCE
We are looking for exceptional leaders. That’s where you come in. You could run your own consulting firm, or maybe you have thought about it. You’re a self-starter. After years in the nonprofit space, you are comfortable leading a hiring process or leading a complex project, from the initial zoom, to preparing decks, to interviews, research and more. You’re more than a good delegator; your work is backed up by meticulous planning, documentation, and outstanding reports and presentations. You are a team player, expected to come into the office and play an active role in building our brand and culture.  You are a nonprofit expert. You’ve done it all from holding a leadership position at a nonprofit organization to volunteering on a fundraising committee. You know how to write agendas, take careful notes, move things forward – all for the ultimate deliverable of client satisfaction and mission success.
