The Management Consulting experience

When you join you’ll be building core skills on a two-year, market-leading, structured programme where you'll experience the full range of what we do, across different  industries.

You’ll build core skills on a market-leading, structured programme where you'll experience the full range of what we do, across different industries. You’ll start with an inclusive and engaging induction experience which builds the mindset, knowledge, skills, behaviours and confidence required by our Consulting Business today and into the foreseeable future.
Our induction will help to build your confidence, as well as your internal networks whilst deepening your understanding of Consulting in the wider business context.  After the training you’ll enter the business, joining over 2,500 of your consulting colleagues working with clients, whilst continuing to develop on our graduate scheme.

Our Consulting practice has been voted for by students as number one in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employer of Choice for Consulting, for the past six consecutive years. We’ve also been externally recognised within the industry, winning two Management Consultancies Association Awards.

Joining as a graduate

A formal qualification is not included in the graduate programme, however, you will be supported and encouraged to take ownership of your personal development, continually learning through feedback from different projects and roles. 

We’ll work with you to track your development so you know how you're doing and where you can improve. At this early stage in your career you’ll have access to inspirational leaders and this, coupled with the quality of the training you'll receive, means you'll become a recognised expert in the profession.

You’ll also have the opportunity to work towards the Chartered Management Consultant award, which sets and maintains the highest standards for the management consulting profession and is aligned to "Consulting Excellence"; the MCA 'kite mark' of quality. The award provides a framework that individuals can use to plan their professional development and is formally recognised in the consulting industry. Across five years, you’ll build a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate that you meet the key competencies and behaviours in order to obtain chartership status. We’ll work with you along your journey.

The future of Management Consulting

Transformation is in our DNA. We are the go-to specialists for strategy-led, digitally-enabled, results-driven, transformation programmes – multi-disciplinary engagements that demand a deep understanding of how organisations operate and an ability to use technology intelligently and creatively.

We improve the way our clients operate; manage costs; better align people, process and technology initiatives; support business growth to maintain or improve competitive edge. In doing so, we focus on their strategic objectives and the big issues they need to deal with, both today and in the future.
