Civic Consulting Alliance is a private, non-profit partnership that invests more than $15 million annually in public sector priorities. We create, embed, and connect pro bono teams of business experts, government leaders, and our own professionals. At no cost to the taxpayer, we lead long-term, high impact programs that government agencies do not have the expertise or capacity to address on their own and the private sector doesn't have the charge to undertake. Our work helps make Chicago more livable, affordable and globally competitive.

Principals have an opportunity to:
  • Serve on the Executive team of the organization and set the future direction of the company
  • Lead a program area (e.g. education, environment, healthcare, public safety, etc.)
  • Manage large, complex projects and teams (often consisting of internal staff, client staff, and private sector partners)
  • Serve as an expert for a given client or agency, developing relationships with senior government officials, cultivating an understanding of clients’ agendas and implications for driving change, and helping client staff implement recommendations
  • Manage partnerships with leading private sector consultancies and corporations
  • Develop proposals for and with clients and external partners
  • Coach colleagues, and at the same time receive mentoring from civic leaders across the region
Eligibility requirements:
  • An advanced degree (MBA, MPP, or related) with at least 10+ years of previous management experience, preferably with a major strategic management consulting firm
  • A demonstrable track record of success “getting things done” in multiple settings (e.g., both private sector and government settings) and working with a variety of people
  • Significant client management skills and analytic skills, as well as project management experience
  • Passion for achieving the mission of the organization
