OC&C has more than 30 years’ experience unpicking the most complex and interesting questions facing businesses, with what we call ‘uncommon sense’.

OC&C has many things in common with the larger strategy consultancies – exceptional people, offices around the world and great opportunities for training and career progression. But we are different in a few ways that may be attractive to you as you consider your career options:

  • Focus on a few exciting sectors: Consumer Goods & Luxury, Retail, Hospitality, Business Services, Media and Technology (no big FS, no government, no pharma…)
  • Highest share of true strategy work among top-tier consultancies (most of whom are increasingly focused on implementation)
  • Typically smaller project teams, so you’re immediately involved in the whole projec
  • A more office-based model, with less traveling to client site and less 'living out of a suitcase'
  • An opportunity to drive the firm’s future in the US: we are only 50 people in New York and just opened in Boston two years ago, and we have ambitious plans for growth
  • Distinctive and entrepreneurial culture - but you can judge that for yourselves when you meet us!
