ABOUT ADVISORS FOR CHANGE:
Advisors for Change (AFC) implements financial management systems that allow mission-driven nonprofits to have greater insight into their financial health. The goal of every engagement is to build a system that can grow with the nonprofit and transfer ownership of it to their internal team. Our clients are organizations that work to improve the lives of individuals and communities through direct services, advocacy and the arts.
Transparent, Accurate, Useful, and Timely: Successful finance systems are built on transparent, accurate, useful, and timely information.
Good, Better, Best: We are committed to life-long learning and work to better ourselves and the nonprofits we serve. We work to make our good better and our better best.
Meet people where they are: We are committed to joining our clients both organizationally and individually where they are without judgement. We work as a team to support each other and allow each team member to work at their own best level. We value diversity and strive to provide a work environment that supports each team member's individuality.
Courtesy is Contagious: We strive to do our work with a positive approach that lifts up the talents of others.
NATURE OF THE WORK: Our team is passionate about how we work with our partners in the process of financial transformation. We don't ask our partners to step out of their comfort zone without bravely stepping out of ours in the cycle of learning and teaching our craft. We are on a quest to help nonprofits expand their own financial management capacity, so our work involves developing and maintaining financial management systems for our clients and then empowering them to gradually take ownership of these systems. We also teach our clients how to use financial information in a meaningful way. Our consulting engagements require deep work with both financial management systems and the people who manage them. The joy, and sometimes the challenge, of our work involves switching gears frequently to work with a diverse set of missions and people to maximize their potential. We work to influence our clients to improve their systems without being in full control of the internal inputs to success. This is a rewarding position for a person who finds delight in system design and implementation, problem-solving, and the development of people who may be new to financial management concepts, systems, and skills.

Team members will be required to work at our Austin office during a 3-month training period and occasionally work at client sites in Austin, as well as, attend all-day mandatory team retreats outside of Austin (1-2 times per year).
