As you will see in this website, we have a wide variety of services and have worked on four continents. From the listing of our clients, you also will see the variety of skills that are needed. Throughout long history, most of our personnel have been associate consultants. The majority are part-time so that they fit it around the schedule of their other commitments and work. Many work from their home office. Some work a few years while we have had several that have enjoyed working with us so much that several have worked for 20 or even 30 years.

Please see more about how Associate Consultants are a vital part of our international team in the last part of the About page.

By design, 75% of our IDEAS Consultants and Trainers are citizens of developing countries. 60% have been from Latin America and 40% have been from Africa and Asia. Our preference is that least 65% are women. One of IDEAS’ objectives is to build additional capacity of these skilled persons in training and technical assistance. By having a variety, IDEAS provides our clients with consultants who are native to the region, speak the local language, know the culture and issues, and are up-to-date with economic development in the region where they work.

On a separate page, there are Associate Consultants examples.  There is more information about the role of the Associate Consultants and bios of two of the consultants who worked around the world with IDEAS. These women enjoyed the consulting, training and evaluating work so much that they later became staff members.

At this time we are seeking consultants in the fields of impact investing and impact evaluation.
