 Project Advisor

The Project Advisor (PA) is an integral part of Conjunct Consulting’s student consulting projects, based out of three universities in Singapore: Singapore Management University (SMU), National University Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).  PAs provide guidance, support project quality and are an invaluable source of knowledge and coaching.  In the project team, there are two PAs (Lead PA and Deputy PA) and five student consultants including one Project Leader.  As PAs, you will work regularly with them to frame issues, guide analyses, as well as provide feedback on presentations and other deliverables.  By giving project-specific support and helping the team attain professional standards, you will be providing our social sector partner organisations with the strategic recommendations needed for them to maximise their social impact.

 As a Project Advisor, you can look forward to using your insights and experience to make a lasting impact on Singapore's social sector, one non-profit organisation at a time.  This also provides you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge about the social sector, to inspire students and engage with other socially aware professionals through Conjunct Consulting events.
