Aspen Leadership Group is pleased to announce an opening for a Search Consultant.

Reporting to the Vice President for Search Management, the Search Consultant will work closely with Senior Consultants to create and refine candidate pools across a portfolio of searches and establish rapport with ALG candidates and network members through personal and tailored contact, including email, social media, telephone, and video conferencing. As a partner in each search, the Search Consultant will maintain frequent, regular, and clear communication with Senior Consultants across a diverse portfolio of searches and equip them to engage in well-informed consultation with clients. The Search Consultant will serve as an active, engaged member of the Search Management Team.

The Search Consultant will contribute to the success and growth of ALG by building and maintaining strong relationships with current and aspiring philanthropy professionals across the nation and around the globe. The Search Consultant will assist these professionals in navigating thoughtful and productive career paths. They will draw on years of success in building long-term relationships with donors and apply those skills in building lasting talent management partnerships with candidates.

The successful candidate should possess deep knowledge of the field of philanthropy. With experience as a successful fundraiser and as a member of fundraising teams, the Search Consultant will craft outreach strategies that result in diverse talent pools and act as a career counselor and advisor to candidates and prospective candidates. The Search Consultant will interact with candidates as peers, rather than simply as recruiters. They will bring their full expertise to each engagement, leading to more robust discussions and lasting outcomes.

ALG builds enduring and productive relationships with individuals pursuing careers in philanthropy and with leaders of organizations engaged in philanthropy. ALG's search services focus on building a team and a culture that enable an organization to engage all of its potential donors and volunteers.

Since our establishment, we have built lasting, deep partnerships with numerous organizations as advisory board members, volunteer chairs, presenting and attending conferences, and meeting with leaders as they build their capacity. ALG empowers advancement teams to change approaches and behaviors and drive unprecedented fundraising results. In short, working at ALG gives accomplished and passionate philanthropy professionals a national platform for influence and impact on fundraising talent in the world of philanthropy.

This position requires at least ten years of fundraising/advancement/development experience within the nonprofit sector. Frontline fundraising experience is a plus.

The salary for this position is $100,000 annually. Benefits include 401K with automatic 3% company contribution (no match required); medical coverage through UnitedHealthcare; basic life insurance; short-term and long-term disability; 11 paid company holidays; and 18 days of paid vacation.
