The Special Initiatives team is part of the Tides Client Services (CS) Department, which interacts directly with Tides clients to provide strategic and management services to drive high impact, effective philanthropy and to scale promising social ventures. The Special Initiatives team leads Tides’ core offering for social impact strategy consulting services, and multi-stakeholder collaborative initiative design, development, and implementation. These services are rooted in trust-based and participatory practices and delivered to clients across each of Tides’ four core partner segments: corporates, social change leaders (or social entrepreneurs), high-net-worth individuals & families, and foundations.

The Senior Advisor oversees a portfolio of social impact consulting projects and collaborative initiatives, while managing highly-complex client relationships with diverse partners from across Tides’ key segments. As needed, and based on Senior Advisor interest and experience, they may also directly supervise one or more direct reports to support the design and implementation of projects. This role also assists with departmental leadership and supports cross-functional teams and organizational projects, as needed. Tapping into deep field and issue area expertise, the Senior Advisor is a strong external voice for Tides and its client partners and supports business development activities along with the Special Initiatives Director and the Strategic Partnerships team.

In the past, Tides staff have worked predominantly from our offices in San Francisco and New York.  Today, we are creating a new hybrid work model to support staff with remote work from anywhere in the United States, work from one of our offices when they formally re-open on September 7, or a combination of both. This is an exciting time to join Tides.

Reporting to the Director of Special Initiatives, the Senior Advisor is a full-time exempt position expected to work the appropriate and necessary time in order to complete key assignments and related tasks on schedule.
