More Information

As a Consultant you will bring incisive thinking and analytical skills to a range of strategic projects.  Working as a member of a project team, you will help to crack some of the most important problems facing our clients, and you will rapidly have exposure to their senior management teams.  Our focus on strategy means that projects tend to be shorter (typically 3-8 weeks) than in other consultancies, and involve more time based in our offices than travelling.
