Position Overview - Associate/Analyst:
Ignite Management is expanding rapidly, and we are looking for the best and brightest to join them on the adventure. We provide transformational services in strategic planning and leadership development. Sounds fun doesn’t it? If you consider yourself a gregarious and inspirational individual, it’s time to connect with the team in Vancouver. We are looking for an Associate who is an excellent communicator with an analytical business mind-set that is eager to learn the ropes in strategic advisory. It’s a bonus if you are the person who likes giving out the occasional high five, possesses a strong sense of humor, and isn’t shy on sharing emotional moments with our clients.
It’s fun, but it’s not games. Certain skill sets will set you apart from the crowd:
- Our associates are heavily involved with the entire lifecycle of a client engagement and so your ability to build trust through excellent services is essential. Hope you have some big shoulders to carry such a load. If not, it's time to hit the gym! However, if you’re up to the task, keep reading. At times, you will be working on different projects; you must be able to handle multiple priorities without being overly frazzled. Therefore, being cool as a cucumber and the occasional deep breath will allow you to excel.
- Our clients are generally C-suite level and the discussions in the boardrooms are often more strategically thematic than tactical. It would be easy to get lost in the weeds if you don’t have a strong understanding of strategic concepts and business acumen. So get ready to dust off those business textbooks, but also leave an open-mind to learn and progress with the Ignite way of strategic advisory.
- We consider ourselves a learned and values driven team. That means we like to read a lot, have weighty debates on how to best serve our clients in the age of rapid disruption, and have a high sense of integrity. It also means post-secondary education, a desire for continual learning and not being shy from radical candor is a must. The successful candidate will have his/her CPA designation with a focus on case studies and data analytics.
What are you waiting for? We take what we do at Ignite very seriously and truly pride ourselves on delivering kick ass customer service. We can offer a competitive base salary, company bonus plan and an industry leading benefit package. If what you have read has got you tingling from your head to your toes, it’s time to give us a shout and tell us why you think you’re perfect for the Ignite team. Don’t dilly dally, send a mind-blowing resume in confidence to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him why you’re the person we are looking for.
