Current Openings

Consultants

PILPG maintains a consultant database of qualified applicants with the skills and expertise to implement PILPG projects.  PILPG utilizes this database to contact qualified individuals regarding new career and consulting opportunities with PILPG and its strategic partners. PILPG generally requires that professionals have at least five years of experience, strong program management skills, and an expertise in their field.

Candidates for the consultant database should submit a resume and contact information to recruitment@pilpg.org.  The words “Consultant Database Submission” should be included in the subject line.  Submissions to the consultant database will not be considered applications for open positions, but will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as opportunities arise.
