The needs of Patina's clients dictate the amount and type of work that we are able to offer. Once you complete and submit our registration form, your information is available to our leadership team for consideration on engagements in all of our markets. If a client need matches your expertise, we will contact you for more information.
Since the market drives our need for particular skill sets at any given time, you may or may not be contacted for engagement opportunities. Please note that we will always have more people interested in working on projects than we can engage at any one time.
Patina is growing rapidly. We are offering high-quality and professionally fulfilling engagements. With our skilled business development team, we expect to offer increasing opportunities for projects and interim roles.
Patina values the individuals who are interested in working on engagements on behalf of the company and encourages open, two-way communication. As part of our Patina Nation, some of the ways in which we may be in contact with you include:
We do suggest remaining a member of the Patina Nation even if you decide to take a full-time role, since there are several ways to earn compensation as noted above.

Please email us here.
There is no cost to join the Patina Nation or to be considered for engagements.
We do not ask that you be exclusive with Patina. We realize that you may have other employment opportunities that you wish to pursue.
Patina offers excellent flexibility. If you choose to decline an engagement for any reason, that is completely fine with us.
The pay rate we offer you is based on the complexity of the engagement, and it may vary by engagement. Patina pays all of its employees on a bi-weekly basis. For the protection of our Patina Professionals and clients, and in order to comply with employment laws, Patina generally operates with a W2 employment model.
Yes, we appreciate referrals from the professionals in the Patina Nation, and bonuses are available for the following types of referrals:
*Please contact the Managing Partner of your Patina office for full details (including amount and timing of referral bonus paid) or to make a referral.
This is not a part of the normal Patina service model and we are very clear when we position our solutions to clients. However, if a client wants to hire you, and you are also interested, we will support the hire. Patina does have the right to charge a fee to the client if this happens.
When we present an opportunity to you, we will discuss the expected duration of the engagement. We expect you to be willing and able to complete the engagement when you accept it so that the Patina client is best served. If you cannot complete the Patina engagement, we do expect enough notice from you to allow us to find another solution and to make a smooth transition with the client.
We do have limited salaried roles in business development, talent sourcing, practice leadership and office general management. For the time being, most all of the employees serving on client engagements will be paid as hourly employees. However, long-term projects may offer salaried opportunities.
The vast majority of our professionals serve Patina’s clients by working on projects and interim engagements. Our opportunities include executing or managing special projects; providing consulting, advising and thought leadership solutions; and performing interim or part-time executive and management roles. These can be short or long term — or full or part time.
Some Patina Professionals enjoy spending a few hours a month utilizing their lifetime of experience, skills, accomplishments and wisdom to help develop our clients’ high-potential employees. Patina Professionals mentor and coach by using phone, email, Skype or live meetings to develop future leaders.
Patina is a great resource for board members or advisory board members. Many of our professionals choose to work with us exclusively in these types of roles. We’ll be happy to introduce you to these opportunities as they arise.
If you are interested in being considered for any of these opportunities, please register here.

Part- or full-time opportunities exist.
