Working on client projects as part of a broader project team, the Analyst is managed by a Director, Principal or Consultant.

Working in teams, under the leadership of a Director or Principal, the Associate Consultant leads problem-solving and analysis on project work streams as part of an overall team effort to deliver powerful insights and identify solutions to our client’s greatest challenges – thus enhancing an organisations ability to drive sustainable social change for disadvantaged Australians.
