Careers

Thanks to hard work and a continuous commitment to excellence, RTI is growing!  We seek to connect with experienced technical, legal, and operational professionals interested in contributing to our growth and expansion.  We offer a stimulating work environment, competitive compensation, and an opportunity to support client cases around the world and across multiple disciplines.

 

Consultant Professional

The Consultant Professional position is a more traditional arrangement between RTI and the sole practitioner.  There is no minimum utilization rate, leaving the Consultant Professional to accept work assignments at his or her discretion.  Production of work assignments brought to RTI or provided to the individual by RTI will be produced under the RTI name and auspices.  RTI Facilities and Services are available to the individual at reduced rates for RTI-branded projects and at the regular rate for non-RTI projects.  Practitioners in all disciplines are welcomed.

Principal Consultant

The Principal Consultant position is a unique arrangement that provides the established practitioner with many of the resources available to RTI Staff while allowing the individual to accept a portion of his or her work assignments independently of RTI. This arrangement allows the Principal Consultant to enjoy the benefits of working with a full-service firm while avoiding many administrative burdens of an independent practice. The position requires the individual to maintain an average minimum weekly workload of 20 hours on active, billable projects.
