Job Description

Who are We?

We are thinkers. We connect dots among unrelated things to see what others don't. We believe that the future is here whether we're ready for it or not.

Toffler Associates is a future-focused strategic advisory firm that works with both government and commercial clients. Our Future Proof® business consulting approach helps global leaders understand how future shifts impact current decisions, so they can take advantage of opportunities, manage risk, and create future value.

We give clients the tools to anticipate the future, identify opportunities for transformation, create innovative alternatives, define vision and develop strategies, and understand future consequences.

Who are You?

You are a Research Associate, adept at supporting team members on engagements, where their primary focus is executing assigned work, researching and leveraging data to solve problems. Research Associates conduct both qualitative and quantitative research, analysis, and synthesis; contribute to the development of deliverables, ensure quality in engagements, share perspectives and ideas, and support the growth of client relationships. This is not a terminal research role, but rather the starting point in our firm's consulting career path.

Your impact will include:

  • Developing a basic understanding of the client's business, including their values and culture
  • Understanding the value of engagements and purpose behind change
  • Assessing your role within the project and how it fits into the larger scope of effort
  • Providing meaningful input and assistance to project work planning and deliverable development
  • Gathering, compiling, and analyzing data in a logical and efficient manner
  • Meeting deadlines and quality expectations
  • Escalating issues to appropriate individuals as needed
  • Contributing to problem solving by suggesting alternatives and potential solutions
  • Executing your own work effort with moderate supervision

You'll arrive equipped with:

  • 2-4 years of professional experience
  • 1+ years of experience with data research and using data to tell a story
  • Bachelor's degree from an accredited college/university
  • Ability to work in our Arlington, VA office, as well as remotely
  • U.S. citizenship (the nature of our work with the federal government limits our hiring to U.S. citizens)

We'll equip you with:

  • A boutique feel and family-like environment
  • A team that values diversity of experience and thought
  • An environment that is unconditionally inclusive across race, gender, identity, religion, sexual orientation, and the many characteristics that make us all unique
  • A network that understands the importance of existing relationships and the creation of new ones
  • Rewarding and meaningful work, with flexibility and balance
  • Competitive compensation and outstanding benefits
