London office

WHAT WE OFFER

  • We will help you build the foundations for your consulting career, learning skills such as digital languages, financial analysis, to the art of storytelling, problem-solving and critical thinking.
  • We create and encourage environments that support awareness, learning, and the open exchange of ideas in our work with both our colleagues and our clients.
  • We offer real work experience–not a curriculum. You’ll work in focused client teams alongside our Partner & Managing Directors, and the owners, boards, and CEOs that we work for.
  • We will give you the experience you need to be a success, anywhere. You will gain expertise across a range of disciplines and build a professional network, that will stay with you through your career.

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING

From day 1, you will work closely with our consulting staff to generate lead opportunities, manage opportunity pipelines, provide company and industry research, conduct business analysis, and provide pitch support.

Your work will be highly visible and will give you a window into the work we do and how we solve critical business challenges.

You will take part in our Consulting Acceleration Programme to learn the key skills needed to be a successful consultant - skills such as cash management, insolvency and due diligence, as well as modules in basic programming (Python, SQL and PowerBI), the process of problem solving, and softer skills such as effective communication, so you can hit the ground running when you start to work on client engagements.

Once you gain a firm foundation, you will become a member of engagement teams deployed to solve our clients’ most critical issues. Your business acumen and understanding are further developed by rotations through our industry practice areas.

You will interact with highly experienced industry experts and have the chance to discover which industries interest you the most.

"The BA programme is a nice way to kickstart your career in consulting. It gives us the chance to connect with experienced professionals and industry experts; to work with them and learn from them"
