Why Do It

As an International Advisor (IA) with RISE Consortium®, you will have the opportunity to turn Romania into a strategic investment hub and global growth engine. You will be an integral part of an amazing team of professionals, with wide-ranging experiences and a proven track record of results.

This will be an opportunity for you to create value by serving as a bridge between Romania and the international market(s) you know best. While expanding your professional network, you will both bring strategic investors to Romania and help Romanian companies expand and find partners internationally. All this will be based on a common mission and on the commitment to succeed together for the long term. Indeed, we do not believe in hierarchies. We believe in partnerships.

What You Will Do

As a RISE Consortium® International Advisor (IA), you will serve as the key investment liaison between your market and Romania, building bridges, changing mindsets, and making smart deals. IAs perform the full-range of tasks required to generate value for our potential and loyal Clients: market and industry assessments, strategic advisory, and business development.

You will prospect markets and industries in your area, engage with potential Clients, attend and organize networking events, and connect with key stakeholders (foreign investors, diplomats and public officials, trade representatives and the executive leadership of chambers of commerce, etc.). While adhering to the RISE objectives and values, you will decide whom to target, approach, and persuade. And how.

Work is project-based, and fees are negotiated for each project in advance, depending on the complexity and scale of the engagement. Depending on Client needs, you will have the opportunity to play a key role not just in making the deal, but also in carrying it forward through the implementation phase. We believe in providing the best know-how to our Clients, and we build the best teams to deliver on our promise.

  • Responsibility to excel in our work;

  • Efficiency in making it all happen.

For RISE to fit you, you should:
