Upon joining the team, you will quickly be assigned to working on one or more client-facing engagements, helping determine the right level of resiliency for their organizations. You will apply Castellan’s proven process to implement business continuity and crisis management-related programs that are uniquely tailored to the organization you are working with. The ultimate goal is to ensure that our clients are prepared for a disaster or business disruption and have the right capabilities to respond following an event. You will work through the business continuity lifecycle of identifying the scope and direction of the program, interviewing business leaders to identify requirements and risks, developing response and recovery strategies, and documenting plans to make strategies repeatable.

Castellan’s specialized business continuity consultants are characterized as high-performing team members who are driven, intelligent, logical, and have an excellent ability to effectively communicate both orally and in written form. You will quickly build and maintain relationships and must be able to navigate the strategic and tactical levels of any organization you work with. You will typically operate in a matrixed environment, depending on the particular client engagement to which you are assigned. You can be assured that you will have the opportunity to work in a variety of segments and markets and will have excellent exposure to many different organizations.

Castellan has a high-performing culture, and we work to develop the skillsets of our consulting team members.
