About The Company:

This company brings together the world's most talented individuals from a wide range of backgrounds spanning engineering, science, mathematics, business & economics, languages, law, social sciences and beyond. With emotional intelligence and a unique approach, they work in partnership with their clients to deliver market leading operational, financial and quality improvements. They implement transformational, award-winning change across a wide range of sectors for some of the world's most successful, innovative organisations. Projects vary in size and complexity, but they are high-profile, multi-million pound programmes, which are carried out on a unique ‘no results, no fees’ basis. It is challenging and incredibly rewarding work, rooted in analysis, problem solving and insightful communication. The track record of delivering huge results along with an inspiring work culture means headcount and turnover has been growing on average at a rate of 30% annually for the last 12 years.

Background to the Role:

Continuous success and demand for business means that we are recruiting at all levels across the consulting teams. Applicants do not need to have had previous consulting experience – we are looking for people with a strong academic background and experience in general business, industry or consulting.

The Role:

All project work with clients commences with an assessment phase to understand the opportunities for organisational or operational improvement. Once the opportunities for improvement have been identified and quantified, a team of consultants will work on the client’s sites to deliver these. A project’s length can vary from several weeks to six months or longer.

The programmes consultants work are normally complex, multi-faceted and will involve delivering real and measurable results for our clients. Depending on your previous experience, soon after joining you could be taking ownership for and personally delivering performance improvement in a discrete area of a project, or you may soon be managing an entire site-wide improvement project, or even be managing a number of sites and improvement processes simultaneously. Comprehensive, tailored training is given to all new joiners upon starting and throughout your career.

At all levels, client relationship management is an important aspect of the role, and you will work extremely collaboratively with clients. All consultants are responsible for developing relationships with key senior stakeholders and ensuring regular project reviews take place.

Beyond day to day client project work, all the people in the company have a broader remit of supporting the growth and development of the consultancy in general. This entrepreneurial spirit is present throughout the company and might involve working with the recruitment team to continue to find us great candidates, or organising internal review meetings or social events, or helping develop our knowledge capture processes. Everyone is encouraged to get involved in growing and developing the company.
