Business Continuity & Crisis Management Analyst

We’re looking for an entry-level industry practitioner with a college degree and interest in business continuity, crisis management, crisis communications, workplace violence prevention/threat management, intelligence, and/or corporate security to join the Bryghtpath Team as a Business Continuity & Crisis Management Analyst.

This is not a business analyst position – this is an entry-level business continuity, crisis management, and crisis communications industry practitioner role.

Experience in these areas is helpful but is not required.

Our consultants and analysts possess a unique mix of generalist and subject matter expert skills, enabling them to provide professional, specialized, expert consulting services to our clients that help them improve their organization’s resiliency, navigate uncertainty, and advance their strategic business objectives.

You’ll be joining a small, nimble, successful, business that is growing significantly year over year.

The work is challenging, global, fast-paced, and ever-evolving. Our clients run the range from large, established Fortune 50 enterprise organizations to local and regional startups that are breaking new ground with their products and services. We have industry concentrations in healthcare, non-profit, retail, energy, and technology / new media businesses currently.

When working with our clients, you’ll be working with senior executives, functional leaders, and boards of directors to directly influence their organization’s strategies for preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery. In the critical moment, you’ll be a key part of our engagement team – working front and center helping our clients devise response and recovery strategies to safeguard their reputation and business.

The work is never boring and the opportunities to learn new skills are present every day.

Bryghtpath is based in Shoreview, Minnesota. We strongly support a distributed work model using collaborative technologies to keep the team and our clients moving forward. Most of our team works remotely, but working in the office in Minnesota or at a coworking site near your place of residence are also options. Some regular domestic travel can be expected in this role to support our clients on-site where necessary.
