Work in Consulting

We’re the UK’s Graduate Employer of Choice for Consulting according to The Times.

Deliver practical, insightful advice that gets straight to the heart of big business issues.

You’ll get to work closely with the best in industry, finance and government in the UK and abroad, bringing fresh insights and motivation to the problems they face. Our clients might want us to help them enter new markets; address the challenges created by organisational change; or draw up a sustainability strategy that aligns their commercial objectives with broader environmental and social concerns.

Whichever part of Consulting you join, you’ll help organisations of all shapes and sizes from strategy right through to execution.

And whatever issues you’re tackling on their behalf, you’ll work with inspiring leaders to deliver results they can measure and a standard of client service that’s truly second to none.

Most things in life change. And the world of business is no exception. Governments change. Exchange rates change. Technology changes. Competition changes. Consulting helps our clients meet their goals by understanding them, listening to them and helping them work out how they could make a few changes of their own – whether they want to grow, help their people to learn new skills or improve the way they do things.

Behind our Consultants are internal projects too. Amongst other things, they keep them up-to-speed with the latest business developments and provide the systems that support the complex work we do. You’ll help clients look at things in new ways, make suggestions and change things when needed. And as every client is different, the work is really varied and projects can last from a few days to a few years.

We’ll support you to study for a nationally recognised professional qualification. You’ll gain valuable on-the-job experience while getting coaching from experts in their field. After the scheme, you can expect to join our graduate training programme and you will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of specialist areas, from Finance, Risk and Technology to Operations and People and Organisations.

You’ll spend your time learning the ropes by working with our internal and client teams across a range of business areas, before joining our graduate programme. You may also have the opportunity to gain exposure to client work such as research, collecting and analysing data, project management and report writing. You could find yourself based in the office, or potentially at a client office, depending on where you’re needed the most.

As a Management Consultant, you’ll come up with answers to all sorts of important business questions. Like what makes the world’s leading brands so successful that customers are happy to pay a premium and keep coming back? How can businesses, their suppliers and networks operate in an environmentally friendly way? How can they make sure their staff feel happy at work?

Our Consultants are into business. Any kind of business. They’re creative, probing, questioning and they look at things differently. If you’re someone who’s flexible and likes change, enjoys dealing with people and is calm under pressure, it could be for you.
