Spinnaker Consulting Group, LLC

This is a Full-time position in Henrico, VA posted March 16, 2023.


Spinnaker Consulting Group is different from other consulting organizations. We are a hands-on firm built around a team of experts with real-world experience who help companies navigate complex business challenges.

We are changing the consulting game because we are doers, working side by side with our clients to do what needs to be done to solve problems and drive results. We are looking for dynamic professionals to join our team and help our clients get there faster!

The Advisor Role:

The Advisor role is a unique position, and it’s not for everyone. It is an on-demand role, paid hourly when client engagements that fit your skills arise. Candidates who may find this a great opportunity include:

  • Individuals with their own solo-practitioner consultancy (or other small business) who may welcome additional engagement opportunities to supplement their own endeavors and income
  • Semi-retired individuals, or people on sabbatical, who want to keep their skills sharp, but who are not seeking full time work and who welcome breaks between engagements
  • Individuals who seek part time work to stay engaged in the workforce on a variable basis, while maintaining flexibility

This is not a salaried role, and Advisors are always empowered to turn down engagements if for whatever reason the work, the timing, or other factor doesn’t appeal to them. They’ll be kept in mind for the next suitable opportunity that arises.

Advisors go through the same interviewing process for skills, experience, and cultural fit as full-time consultants. It is critical to Spinnaker that this is a good two-way fit. In fact, some Advisors have transitioned into full time Consultant roles, while some Consultants have transitioned into Advisor roles. If the idea of flexible work appeals to you, keep reading!

As an Advisor at Spinnaker Consulting Group, you will apply your skills and experience to help clients solve complex business problems and achieve their objectives.

Your Role:

  • Independently overcome obstacles/impediments and provide solutions/advice to the client team
  • Use relationship management and delegation skills to effectively drive work through others (Spinnaker and client)
  • Provide timely updates to ensure deliverables and the engagement are on track, highlighting delays or impediments immediately when they are identified, following the day-to-day direction of the Team Lead


Your Experience:

  • You have five or more years’ experience working in a professional environment in the financial services industry in one or more of these functions:
  • Risk (Enterprise, Operational, First Line, Second Line, etc.)
  • Compliance
  • Data Analytics (data engineering, business intelligence, data transformation)
  • Business, Credit, and/or Marketing Analytics
  • Operations Analytics (Customer Service & Contact Center experience a plus)
  • Process Excellence (Lean or Six Sigma Certifications a plus)

  • You are experienced in leading project delivery and communicating effectively, both verbally and written, to a wide audience.
  • You have demonstrated ability to influence client decision makers and drive results through a team effort
  • You are self-directed, accountable, creative and comfortable working independently in a fast-paced, client facing environment with a travel component, when needed
  • You are able to navigate sometimes ambiguous and unstructured problem sets
  • You have strong research, organizational, analytical, and problem resolution skills
  • You earned bachelor’s or master’s degree(s) in a related discipline and strive to expand your technical knowledge on an ongoing basis
  • Regulator experience (CFPB, OCC, FDIC) for compliance skillsets and regulator familiarity for other skillsets is highly desired

Your Colleagues:

Each member of our leadership team has over 20 years of experience running and managing businesses in addition to critical job specific competencies.
