Opportunity Type: Experienced

Country: United States

Office Locations: Chicago - IL

The Opportunity:

Higher education provides students (whether entering through mahogany doors or cyberspace) a neon arrow that flashes: Your future this way… So when institutions require our help with institutional strategy, business operations, research enterprise, student success, or enterprise systems integration —or any other roadblock that challenges their ability to provide the awe-inspiring education that defines them—our consultants serve as “first responders”—providing leadership…solutions…and measured results.

Our legacy is rooted in the industry – bringing an unmatched level of expertise and experience in higher education. Yet we challenge the status quo and empower our clients to think more deeply about the future. From vision to execution, we enable our clients to identify and realize unique opportunities to drive higher levels of performance and impact.

It’s a noble role we execute with pride—one that shapes education globally.

Position Summary:

The multi-faceted role you’ve been looking for… Managers play a vibrant, integral role at Huron. Their invaluable knowledge reflects in the projects they manage, and the teams they lead. Known for being political savvy, they build long-standing partnerships with clients, while collaborating with colleagues to solve their most important challenges. In fact, they shape and deliver results that seamlessly align with client goals, visions and missions. Remarkably versatile, our Managers also spend significant time mentoring junior staff on the engagement team—where they tirelessly share expertise as well as feedback and encouragement. This benefits Huron profoundly as it promotes a culture of respect, unity, collaboration, and personal achievement.


Our environment inspires and rewards growth… As a Manager, you have the unique ability to specialize in certain areas that showcase and employ your areas of expertise while pursuing your “career vision”. Huron is big enough to offer the opportunity and exposure you need for your career growth—but small enough to give you individual attention for your professional development. Every manager adds to who we are as an organization—and the more you evolve, the more we do. An exciting career experience awaits you: It’s intense… it’s analytically rigorous… it’s practical… it’s entrepreneurial… it’s intellectually stimulating—and most definitely—it’s career-defining… It’s the Huron Way
