Founded in 1915, CGR has been delivering expert support to the public, nonprofit and private sectors for a century. Originally, we were incorporated as the Rochester (NY) Bureau of Municipal Research, and were established by founder George Eastman with a mandate to “get things done for the community” we call home. Although our passion for delivering promising solutions has never changed, both the geographic area and clients we serve have broadened dramatically. Today we have a national reach and can be found working with a diverse range of agencies, organizations and communities.
In an arena served almost exclusively by for-profit consultancies, CGR stands apart. Since our founding, we have operated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a status that insulates us from political bias and holds us accountable to our clients’ true shareholders – the communities they serve – positioning them as more desirable places to live and work.
Just like our clients, we’re in the business of making a difference.
CGR is committed to building a culturally diverse team and strongly encourages applications from minority and female candidates. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
When our clients succeed, we succeed. To continually improve our service to clients, we always accept applications from talented job candidates who share our passion for delivering for clients and making a difference. If there is no immediate opening, we keep the most promising applications on file for future consideration.
CGR is seeking a dynamic and strategically-focused leader to serve as its next President and Chief Executive Officer. The ideal candidate possesses deep experience in at least one of CGR’s main consulting research areas – government, education, nonprofits, philanthropy, health / human services and economics / public finance – and a demonstrated record of professional accomplishment and community engagement in a managerial or similar position of organizational leadership. The search will remain open until filled, but only nominations received by April 12 can be assured full consideration.
CGR invites applications for a team member at the Research Assistant level to provide critical data (both qualitative and quantitative) and analytical support to project teams across all of CGR’s major practice areas: Government & Education, Economics & Public Finance, Health & Human Services, and Nonprofits & Communities. Review of applications will begin on April 8, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
CGR invites applications for a team member at the Research Associate level (or higher subject to qualifications) to support projects involving evaluations of municipal government, service delivery, financial sustainability, shared services, efficiency improvement and community change. While the position would primarily work in our Government & Education practice area, it would be expected to support (as needed) a range of projects across CGR’s other main practice areas: Nonprofits & Communities, Economics & Public Finance, and Health & Human Services. As such, this Associate-level position is a unique opportunity to gain exposure to a broad range of public policy issues at the local and regional level. Review of applications will begin on April 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
