Volunteer Opportunity description

Strategy Consultants Needed – Pro Bono Strategy Management

Do good for your community while using your professional expertise and working with talented peers on a highly structured pro bono project. We make it easy to make a difference.

Taproot Foundation is a nonprofit organization that makes business talent available to organizations working to improve society. We engage marketing, technology, strategy, design, and HR management professionals in pro bono projects, called Service Grants, which benefit local nonprofits. Our goal is to ensure that one day all organizations with promising solutions will be equipped to successfully take on urgent social challenges. To date, we have engaged over 4,500 professionals on more than 1,000 pro bono projects benefiting education, health, environment, social service, and arts initiatives.

Pro Bono Strategy Consultants Needed

A Taproot Strategy Consultant leads the effort to address a client's most challenging problems by identifying issues, forming hypotheses, planning and conducting interviews and analyses, synthesizing conclusions into recommendations, and creating plans to implement change as appropriate. Taproot Strategy Consultants also help create the necessary consensus within an organization to achieve results, including presenting strategy to the client's executive leadership.

A successful pro bono Strategy Consultant

  • Has 3+ years of post-MBA/graduate experience working for a leading consulting firm on strategy management, for a leading financial institution in equity analysis or M&A, or performing similar functions in a corporation
  • Has at least Manager or Strategy Consultant-level experience

A Service Grant project requires a 3-5 hour commitment each week over the course of approximately 6 months. This opportunity is flexible enough to work around the schedule of a full-time job.
