As the Marketing Assistant and Office Coordinator, you will become part of the team that works together to manage the operations of the firm and to support consultants in their project work and marketing efforts. CFAR has offices in both Philadelphia and Boston. The Marketing Assistant and Office Coordinator is the sole member of the Support Staff located in Boston. As such, this role presents a unique opportunity for a motivated individual who is not afraid to roll up their sleeves and dive into a variety of projects and tasks. We are looking for someone who will be excited to contribute to the firm as a whole, and to our growing Boston office in particular—and who views no task as too big or too small.

Managers work in a dynamic and challenging environment, collaborating closely with analysts, senior managers, and principals in small, high-performance teams focused on client problems. Managers analyze qualitative and quantitative data, manage complex tasks, lead and facilitate work sessions for our clients, and present analyses with CFAR’s recommendations to the client.
CFAR leverages the deep expertise of its consultants. For this reason we fast track the development of our managers. One or two years into their tenure, managers can expect to rapidly take on greater responsibilities, to begin selling work, and to collaborate with colleagues to develop the proprietary tools and methods that we use to meet our clients’ needs. The manager position is seen as a springboard for senior consulting.
How we work together internally is as important to us as how we work with our clients, so we strive to find individuals who fit our culture and share our values. These are people who display a natural curiosity, have a demonstrated record of leadership within and outside the workplace, enjoy working in an entrepreneurial environment, and are fun to be around. Our goal is to hire people who we can imagine will one day become principal owners of the firm.
