Job Description

Principal (Healthcare Payer Experience)

Our client is a strategy and performance consulting firm built on deep operational expertise. Because their Associates have been both Clients as well as Consultants, they bring meaningful perspectives as well as market practices on issues that senior leaders face. Through distinctive methodologies, tools, and accelerators, they help their clients build strategies that are sound, executable, and enduring.

Our client is not all things to all people. They work only in industries or functions where their Associates have first-hand experience in delivery and operating roles. If they haven't done the work, they don't consult on the work.

Our client requires all potential candidates possess the following in order to be considered for the Principal role:

  • At least 6 years working for, or consulting to, healthcare payers
  • At least 10 years total work experience
  • At least 6 years in a large, top-tier consulting firm in strategy and operations roles

As the Principal (Payer and PMO Experience), you will be required to possess three critical elements:

  • Deep experience in structuring and managing complex, multi-workstream programs for clients ($100M+ budget)
  • Deep healthcare expertise in the Payer domain (other insurance related domains will be considered)
  • Prior strategy and operations consulting experience in a large, reputable Firm.

As a Principal, you will be directly responsible for leading client engagements as well as mentoring staff through their engagements and deliverables. You will have ownership of all deliverables within an engagement and will serve as the primary day-to-day contact with clients. Leadership and the ability to be a player/coach are key characteristics of being successful in this role. The Principal will also have a $2M+ sales target focused on follow-on work with existing clients as well as new clients.

Location preference is Chicago or Dallas, although other locations will be considered as long as the candidate is open to frequent travel to client locations.


  • Prior experience working for, or consulting to healthcare payers or insurance is required.
  • Demonstrated experience in managing consulting engagements in a high-paced environment. Candidates with no prior experience in a Consulting Firm will not be considered.
  • Demonstrated experience managing large and complex programs ranging from $100M-$1B budget and 200+ client employees.
  • Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 6 years of total experience with at least 2 years in a large, top-tier strategy consulting firm.
  • Independently leading engagements and being the primary day-to-day contact with the client.
  • Structuring engagement activities, delegating effectively and coaching junior staff.
  • Strategy development experience is strongly preferred.
  • Advanced degree preferred, but not required (MBA, MHA, MPH).

Additional Key Qualifications:

  • Capable of leading through influence
  • Strong executive presence
  • Have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Able to manage competing priorities with a high level of organization and attention to detail
  • Enjoy creative problem-solving in a rapidly changing environment
