Resources for Professional Consultants

We use a consultant registry to recruit and maintain communication with our consultants. This registry is one of our primary resources for recruiting for short- and long-term assignments around the world.

Consultant Registry Instructions

Create Your Profile

We invite you to submit your qualifications through our consultant registry. The information you provide will help us ensure that we recruit the most qualified candidates for current and upcoming projects.

Update Your Profile

Update your profile and resume regularly so we always have the information we need to match your capabilities with job opportunities. It is especially important that we have your current contact information and a current CV. You may also upload other useful documents such as biodata 1420 forms and reference letters. 

Check Open Jobs

Open positions change often, so check our listings frequently.

Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifications should I meet to be a consultant?

We seek consultants to work on projects for funding agencies, private sector groups, USAID, the World Bank, and other development banks. Clients publish requests for proposals with scopes of work and terms of reference (i.e., descriptions of position requirements). You should have the expertise—a combination of experience and education—required by the scope of work and the terms of reference. If you have recently graduated with a bachelor's degree and have little experience in your field, becoming a consultant will be a challenge. Most clients require at least five years of experience relevant to the project.

What do I have to do to be considered for consulting assignments with Nathan Associates Inc.?

Create a profile in our consultant registry, filling in all required fields, and upload your most recent CV. 

What do you need to see on my CV?

The CV should describe your expertise and highlight important information—education, relevant experience, language proficiency, citizenship. The more specific the information, the better chance we have of making a match. It's a good idea to provide details on training, postgraduate coursework, and certifications. Attach your CV to your consultant profile and be sure to update it as you gain experience.

What happens to my CV after Nathan Associates receives it?

All new entries to the consultant registry are reviewed and approved by our recruitment team. Once your CV is in the system, it will come to our attention if your skills, experience, education, and/or training match those required by the project or proposal. Be thorough in completing your profile so we can identify your qualifications and expertise.

When can I expect a response?

We contact consultants (1) when we need more information and (2) when their qualifications match those required by a solicitation or project. Positions do not open up daily, but we contact potential consultants as positions open, so keep your contact information up to date—don’t forget to bookmark our website.
