Why suffer through another East Coast Winter? Come to Portland and join a great firm focused on change management.

This is the view outside my office window today.  Portland is experiencing 60+ degree weather with all kinds of things blooming.  I have been playing golf on the weekends, working in the garden and enjoying long walks with my dogs.  I am working on a great opportunity with a smaller firm who is looking for several experienced change management consultants.  Portland is a great city to live in, you can be at the ocean or the mountains in an hour (or do both in one day).  We have hiking, great good, entertainment and a vibrant business community.  If you like waking up to bitter cold temperatures and several feet of snow, then Portland is not the place for you.  But, if you are looking for a change, why not come to our great city and find yourself looking at view like this?   Read more about this roles below.

“People” is the key word of the day for business executives.  It is listed as a number one concerns by CEO’s in attracting, developing and retaining talent. We are working with a firm that specializes in people issues providing change management and organizational transformation to companies in the Northwest.   This firm is experiencing tremendous growth and is looking to add several roles to its team.  Our client is a forward thinking, lifestyle firm that offers the ability to do the work you love on the “people” side, work with interesting clients and lessen your travel while having your growth opportunities increase.

Our client is looking for senior consultants and managers who have experience in change management, organization design, organizational effectiveness, developing and executing communication plans and helping companies transform the “people” side of their business.  While candidates from the consulting industry are preferred, our client will also consider people from industry who have worked in organization transformation, human capital and leading change initiatives.

Relocation to Portland, OR is required and our client will offer relo assistance.  This is a firm who practices the things it preaches to its clients in terms of how it treats its own employees with unlimited paid time off, an unique career framework that allows you to manage your needs/desires, collaborative and fun team environment and recognition/rewards for a job well done.

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to focus on the “people” side of professional services and be in an entrepreneurial environment where you can control your career destiny and work/life balance.  (And not have to sit inside because it is too cold to do anything else but work…)
