The review process will begin immediately by members of the OneTable team, and will include an interview for selected candidates. In addition to a resume, each candidate must submit a brief statement of interest.

Review Process:

  • Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis until the Consultant is identified.
  • Submission of Resume and Statement of Interest
  • 1-2 rounds of interviews with members of the OneTable team
  • Applicants that move forward may be asked to complete a written task or share a piece of work
  • There may be additional conversations with colleagues with whom they would be working.

Note: OneTable seeks to increase equity in its hiring and therefore to mitigate the inside edge sometimes given to those who have relationships with “field insiders,” OneTable does not accept informal recommendations from individuals with personal connections to our staff or Board members and cannot factor such referrals into selection of candidates for interviews.
