What will you do and how will you grow:

Consultants play a significant role in driving the delivery of innovative and results-oriented solutions for our clients. They lead research and analysis for the case, framing the team’s knowledge base around the topic at hand. This includes both, quantitative rigor and gaining primary insights through interviews with stakeholders. As those who dive deep into the issues, they think critically and creatively to develop insights based on their findings from the research process. They gain a broad knowledge base that cuts across sectors and geographies while driving the core of every project’s work. Not only do Consultants work closely with their managers, but they are also tasked with gaining trust and credibility by working directly with clients and change makers. Our recent Consultants have conducted a landscape analysis of the micronutrient malnutrition sector, compiled a comprehensive report on state the off-grid solar lighting market across Africa and conducted a market scoping study of the inclusive business sector in India and Sri Lanka.
