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.

What is Consulting?
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.

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.
Join us straight from School or College
We’ll support you to study for a nationally recognised professional qualification whilst also learning the ropes by working with our internal teams. You’ll gain valuable on-the-job experience while obtaining getting coaching from experts in their field, which will equip you with the skills to really make a difference. Later 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, working remotely or potentially at a client office, depending on where you’re needed the most.

After the scheme, you’ll be taken through our promotion process which will assess your eligibility to move on to the next stage of your career. If successful, you’ll join our Management Consulting graduate programme. You’ll undertake learning in a variety of specialist areas, from Finance, Risk and Technology to Operations and People and Organisation.
Is Consulting right for you?
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.
What you'll need
112 UCAS tariff or equivalent - minimum requirements, plus a grade 4 or above in GCSE English Language and Mathematics (or equivalent) for school and college leaver roles.
