North Highland Associate Vice President in St. Louis, Missouri


North Highland believes in unleashing potential together. It means we challenge thinking and build our clients’ capabilities so they are stronger for the long-term. It means we create and nurture an environment for our colleagues where sharing ideas isn’t just encouraged – it’s expected. And it means we give our skills, time, and passion to uplift our communities. We act, create, and build – not just talk.

Does that sound like you? If so, let’s connect.

Why North Highland? Our employee ownership model enables you to grow through your choices and build the firm. We’ll provide challenging opportunities to learn, and we’ll coach you as you grow personally and professionally. We offer an array of resources and training (both on- and off-the job) to help our people expand their knowledge, sharpen their skills and aim for the next level.

At North Highland, you’re not a number. Our firm is large enough to scale up and tackle the most complex challenges, but small enough where we can each quickly make our mark for our clients.

  • Develop compelling and targeted account strategies that drive new account acquisition.

  • Manage client investments and a portfolio of projects to meet or exceed margin forecasts.

  • Grow as a thought leader by developing your professional network through association memberships, speaking and writing engagements, and community activities.

What you will need:

  • 10+ years of, professional services and/or staffing industry experience, current or tracking towards senior leadership or senior executive level.

  • 10+ years of business development experience with 5+ years of experience in a leadership role.

  • Demonstrated success leading new business development opportunities and selling solutions for existing and new Fortune 500 client accounts, including proposal development experience.

  • The ability to identify out-of-the-box solutions and creatively solve complex technical/business problems.

  • Demonstrated success leading a geographically distributed team.

  • Experience running engagements, managing teams, and driving desired business outcomes throughout delivery, as well as the ability to pinpoint gaps and omissions.

  • A track record of leading large, complex consulting engagements with roles that involve building and fostering relationships with senior-level client executives.

  • An ability to authentically establish credibility, build consensus, and activate collaboration with clients and teammates.

  • Excellent interpersonal/communication skills.

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college/university. A master’s degree and/or professional certificates are bonuses.
