I joined Sapere to help organizations discover and implement a more sustainable way of thinking and doing – to challenge the status quo and guide organizations in being proactive. I was looking to launch a consulting career with experienced mentors, client diversity in sectors and project diversity in services.
Sapere Consulting appealed to me because of the variety of work consultants encounter, and the encouraged culture of lifelong education and development the company fosters. I was looking for a chance to impact organizational effectiveness across a variety of industries, and Sapere provided the opportunity.
I chose to work at Sapere because I knew that meant being given the support and opportunity to grow professionally as well as the platform to impact the world in a meaningful way.
For me, one of the most appealing aspects of Sapere was the breadth and variability of work. Some jobs have a clear path to mastery of a select set of skills, but Sapere offers a more dynamic career. When I interviewed with Sapere, I saw that no matter how many years of experience the senior consultants at Sapere had, they were still actively and passionately learning and evolving their approaches to new projects. They were committed to delivering experience and insight in addition to the contract deliverables.
I came to Sapere because they presented an opportunity to expand service offerings beyond what either company could offer the energy industry on their own. That, and the chance to work with a group of dynamic hard-working professionals dedicated to helping clients manage difficult projects, processes and decisions. I have always worked to help clients harvest value through my consultations and I know that Sapere is dedicated to the same goal.
I wanted to be a part of a team that has an atmosphere of professionals that are striving to be innovators and changers to help businesses and industries to be more efficient and intelligent in operations. Sapere Consulting has this atmosphere and is a great team to be a part of.
I chose to join Sapere because I was looking for an opportunity to work within the natural resource field in the northwest, but in a new light. Coming from a background in natural resource research, I was ready for a new challenge that looked at different issues when it came to natural resource management. Sapere has given me the chance to learn and develop a whole new skill set that can be applied to help change and improve the management of natural resources in the northwest.
Sapere sells the skills, knowledge, and innovation of its staff. Internally, our team is responsible for growing the next generation of leadership by investing our time and efforts in junior staff development. Sapere does not take recruiting lightly. That’s why a member of our team reads every resume and cover letter that comes to us, why a number of us meet every candidate that interviews, and why we are already proud and confident on our recruit’s first day. Everything we’ve accomplished and our continued success is due to the talented people at Sapere.
We are constantly looking for new and innovative talent, and we appreciate the opportunity to help individuals grow their careers. If you think you would like to be a part of our team, we’d love to introduce who we are and what we do.
Why work for Sapere?
When our consultants start at Sapere, they notice that this job is unlike any they’ve ever had before. To begin, no two days are the same. One day might include a whiteboard session with your coworkers in the office while the next might require you to be onsite working with clients on a project.
Sapere is a lot of things, but boring isn’t one of them.
Outside of our changing daily duties, Sapere consultants also work on the cutting edge of many industries. One of the most significant sectors we work with is energy, where we often support organizations to develop new and exciting ways to ensure sustainability and adapt to the changing energy market. Through the work they do with our clients, many Sapere consultants have the opportunity to help create practical solutions to current energy issues. We also have a thriving technology practice that is involved in research and development of new products that have the potential to improve the ways our clients do business.
Sapere is dedicated to ensuring that each of our consultants has the opportunity to voice his or her opinion. We truly believe that the best work comes from collaboration, and those who have something valuable to contribute will always be heard.
Who is our ideal candidate?
If you’re still reading, then you already have one of the most important attributes we feel a consultant needs: focus. We want candidates who are driven to work with purpose, those that are willing and able to move between projects without missing a beat and continually perform at a high level. Candidates that proactively solve problems, learn something new, and hit the ground running will succeed at Sapere. If you have a solid work ethic and a tenacity to get the job done right, Sapere could be a great fit for you.
Our key requirement for all consultants is excellence in communication. A huge portion of the consultant’s daily duties involves collaboration, both with other Sapere employees and our clients. You’ll need to be an active and effective communicator. A successful consultant needs a strong work ethic and a sense of intellectual curiosity, while also knowing when to listen to the ideas of others when they are best for the project at hand. This balance is the key to ensuring a project is completed efficiently while maintaining a positive and professional attitude. Sharing opinions is important, but solving the problem in the best way possible is always the primary goal.
Sapere does not look for people of with a specific degree, background, or passion. Through our recruiting process, we are able to determine and understand whether a candidate has the intelligence, communication skills, and drive to make a difference for our clients and our company. At Sapere, we all rise and fall together – so we want people who elevate our work, our culture, and our spirits.
