Special Advisor-Finance

Pacific Northwest-remote | Part-time | Fully remote


Management Partners is seeking a seasoned municipal finance expert to assist our clients in the Pacific Northwest and nationwide on a part-time basis.


Management Partners is a professional management consulting firm that helps local governments increase their effectiveness by analyzing operations and recommending improvements. As a company we value diversity, intelligence, curiosity, and initiative. And a sense of humor. Founded in 1994, our staff includes managers with practical experience in public service in a variety of program areas. We understand how to bring excellence to public service, and we are sensitive to the political context in which public services are provided. Our clients include cities, counties, and special districts of all sizes across the United States.   


Ideal candidates will

  • Have served as a Finance Director/Chief Financial Officer in a local government agency (city, county, or special district)
  • Possess significant knowledge of local government finance, accounting, budget, and financial operations
  • Have a desire in performing project-related work and sharing their finance skills in serving communities on a part-time basis, as needed
  • Effectively work in a remote environment, with travel optional


Management Partners welcomes PERS retirees (e.g., WA-PERS, OR-PERS, CalPERS).


At Management Partners, we introduce innovation, ideas, and fresh perspectives into local government. Our consultants help cities, counties and other public agencies articulate complex issues and analyze systems in a simple straightforward way so that problems can be understood, and solutions developed and implemented. It is hard to make complexity simple but good analytics is always the key. It’s public service management consulting that makes a difference.


Management Partners has offices in San Jose and Costa Mesa, California, and in Cincinnati, Ohio, although all consulting associates can and do work remotely. More information about the firm can be found at Management Partners.  As a Special Advisor for the organization, the candidate will work with consultants based throughout the United States.
