Employment Opportunities

Management Consultant – Memphis, TN
Are you interested in making a difference and balancing the scales of economic injustice? If so, this might be the opportunity for you. Communities Unlimited, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization searching for skilled individuals desiring an opportunity to make a difference in places where access to traditional resources is limited, poverty has persisted for decades and hard-working entrepreneurs want someone to work alongside them to strengthen their business management skills or facilitate the launch of a start-up.

If you are searching for structured bonus opportunities, a six-figure salary and a position that includes an assistant – we are probably not a good fit for your career goals.

If you would like an entrepreneur to be talking about your service the way Angela Brown of D’Serv Healthy Hair talks about the consulting she received from Communities Unlimited – then this might be a good fit for your career goals. You can hear from Ms. Brown by visiting this page on our website.
Management Consultants provide direct one-on-one managerial assistance to small businesses both on-site and through virtual consulting supporting through video conferencing tools. Clients may be located throughout CU’s 7-state service area; however, the majority of clients will be within a 3-hour drive of the consultant’s home-base. Successful consultants possess strong financial and management skills, thrive in a team environment, enjoy serving entrepreneurs with a focus on empowering them to the point that CU’s services are no longer needed. CU’s mission is to serve entrepreneurs constrained by limited credit history, limited access to financial/managerial training or education, and/or lack of access to traditional financing options.

A Master’s degree is required, with a strong preference for a MBA or Master’s in Social Entrepreneurship. A minimum of 3 years of related work experience is required. Business ownership experience is preferred.

CU is a nonprofit community development organization founded in Arkansas in 1976. CU’s mission is to move rural and under-resourced communities in areas of persistent poverty to sustainable prosperity. CU staff provide a full range of management consulting, technical assistance, financing and training to strengthen communities and small businesses. We serve the following seven states: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
