About the role

The Global Consulting Group (GCG) is a charity which provides pro-bono consulting services to other charities and not-for-profits.

The organisation currently has 120 volunteers across several locations in Australia and has completed over 50 projects for clients such as the United Nations, Tedx, St Vincent De Paul and Left Right Think Tank.
