MC to NGO then back to MC?

 
#1 MC to NGO then back to MC?
31/01/2011 08:51

wondering

I have been offered a position with an NGO in my field (same type of work I have previously done as a consultant).

If I was to accept the offer and work with the NGO for 2-3 years, how difficult would it be to get back into consultancy afterwards? I mean under normal market conditions, since I'd be out of the equation for 2-3 years.

For info, I have approx 7 yrs MC experience, note that the NGO work would be in that same field.

Offer is in the same ballpark as my MC package so that's not a factor.

Any serious advice from others in that situation would be very gratefully received.

Bob to wondering (#2)

How can an NGO possibly be offering an MC equivalent package? Somthing stinks in that.

Re. your actual question, can't really speak with any authority as am not a recruiter. But looking at this from the point of view of someone reviewing CVs you should consider:

- will the NGO opportunity push you and challenge you in new ways?

- will it give you new learning opportunities (e.g. new types of stakeholders, more complex operating environment, dealing with suppliers/buyers/contracts, managing more/different/difficult/senior/junior employees)

- will it give you industry insights that you can apply in your consulting career

- will it build industry/consulting contacts that you can leverage when you're back in consulting

And trumping all of the above:

- will it give you more enjoyment in your working life

- will it provide the work/life balance you want

- will it mean less/more travel, shorter/longer commute

- will it mean working with people who are inspired, motivated, helpful, inspiring, motivating
