Who you are?

You are an experienced public sector professional in either New York City or State government. You have a deep understanding of government processes and a deep understanding of your subject matter. You are strategic, you understand how things are done in government and who gets them done. You are creative enough to devise innovative solutions and to envision how to make them happen. You enjoyed the years you spent in City or State government, worked on important projects that improved the lives of New Yorkers and understand how the government and private sector interact. You embody the highest ethical standards and want to work with a team of seasoned professionals who enjoy what they do. You understand the role that politics play in how government decisions are made but you also understand how innovative ideas get turned into a reality in the public sector. You are focused and work well independently but also can work with a creative team to solve a problem holistically.

We are looking for the highest quality individuals who are deeply respected by their peers inside and out of government. We would like you to have a sense of humor, a positive outlook and healthy sense of ambition and entrepreneurial spirit as well as continued commitment to helping government help New Yorkers.

What you will be doing

You will be working as part of an experienced team with our current clients (and helping to grow our current client base) by developing strategies to best position their products or services. You will be providing strategic advice to our clients so that they can better appreciate local government pain points and opportunities. You may be helping our clients draft responses to procurement opportunities or guiding them through the administration of their current contracts or helping them to negotiate new contracts. You will apply your subject matter expertise to help shape solutions that can help improve the lives of New Yorkers.

You will develop existing and executive level client relationships, cultivate new relationships, and help to attract new clients by having the subject matter knowledge to understand how private sector solutions can help the government to meet its daily challenges. You will help our clients develop strategic account plans.
