Description

Company Overview

Schultz & Williams (S&W) is a highly respected consulting firm that provides comprehensive services including development, direct response, temporary staffing, training and board development, data analytics and development operations services, strategic planning and marketing to nonprofits of all types and sizes. Schultz & Williams is a national firm headquartered in Philadelphia.

Position Overview

Reporting to a consulting team, the Project Manager (PM) works within S&W’s Development Consulting and Staff Solutions line of service, focusing on ongoing fundraising programs, capital campaigns and interim staffing. The PM is responsible for day-to-day client relationship management and serves as a facilitator and coordinator for fundraising programs, clients, and consultants.

The PM will serve on 8 - 10 client accounts at any given time. The PM will work with clients in all nonprofit sectors (unless client mission is in conflict with staff member’s beliefs or values).

The PM will have the opportunity to continue to build their knowledge of the nonprofit sector as a whole, and fundraising in particular, and will be able to contribute to the impact of diverse nonprofits as each one aims to make the world a better place. S&W is a for-profit consulting firm that is intentionally and uniquely positioned to meet the fundraising resource needs of nonprofit clients of all sizes, from start-up grassroots organizations to legacy institutions. Collaboration with Development Consulting colleagues – and colleagues in other S&W practice areas – will be essential in order to leverage the firm’s knowledge and deliver the greatest value to our clients. The PM’s voice, perspective and participation will be important on all assigned projects, as well as in broader team and firm-wide discussions. Client work will always be a top priority and workflow is not always predictable. The PM must be prepared to meet deadlines and maintain standards of excellence. Sales opportunities are ongoing and at times the PM will be asked to participate in preparation for Sales meetings and presentations.

This is currently a hybrid position, with the current expectation of two days a week spent in the Center City Philadelphia office. The PM must be available for on-site client meetings and internal S&W meetings 5 days a week, as needed. Some regional or national travel may be required, including client-related work as well as attending and representing S&W at conferences.
