We seek colleagues who think deeply about unraveling complex situations, enjoy working in teams, are diplomatic, have individual expertise in a relevant field and are passionate about serving families. If you are intellectually curious, analytical, disciplined and driven, a collaborator, enjoy helping others be smart, non-judgmental about differences, globally-minded, humble and people-oriented, we would enjoy learning about your interest in supporting family enterprises.
Cambridge Advisors’ clients are high-performing and often high-profile families around the globe that own substantial businesses and financial investments. They seek assistance from us to ensure the long-term success of their enterprises, unity of their families and owners, and talent development of family members and non-family managers. Family Enterprise may include operating businesses, philanthropic activity, perhaps through a family foundation, a family office, and other collective activity of the family. Whether we are preparing family members of the next generation to become capable owners or employees of the family business, facilitating a succession transition from one generation to the next, designing a governance model for a family enterprise system, advising the board of directors on a long-term strategy, recommending policies for shareholder agreements between family members, or addressing tensions between family members, our goal remains the same: to deliver profound transformation to our clients for success across generations.

The Advisor is a key role in the effective delivery of advisory services to our clients. Under an apprenticeship model, the Advisor is assigned to two or more Partners, and possibly a Senior Advisor, in order to support their client project needs, develop professionally, and assist in the delivery of services on client projects. This involves background research and report preparation, industry research and analysis, client communications, preparation of meeting materials and presentations, tracking and ensuring delivery of action items, and tracking project progress. After an adequate training and orientation period–during which time there is deep learning of our theoretical frameworks and practical application for clients– the Advisor transitions to client-facing advisory work to support a client project team. After achieving the required skills and prerequisites, the Advisor may then later evolve into a Senior Advisor as the next career stage. Learn More >
