Our business is built on the skills and expertise of our people, and we regularly employ talented individuals from a variety of levels and backgrounds who make a real contribution to our firm’s uniquely rich and diverse culture.
Since our teams are smaller than those in most consultancies, you’ll work closely with leading experts in their fields who range from forensic accountants and crisis communications specialists to former chief executives, political leaders and Nobel Laureate economists.
The issues with which we deal often are complex and interrelated so your initial project could demand expertise from any or all of our five practices. Every project is different and, as a consultant, you’ll need to use all your technical and analytical abilities to come up with innovative solutions.
Our working culture is unique, relying upon and valuing the contribution of every individual, no matter what the title or role is, so you will have many opportunities to make your mark.
Learning and Developing
Helping you to realise and build on your potential in order to develop your career is a very important part of what we do. While the exact job titles vary depending on the practice you are in, there are multiple levels of staff within the firm. Your career progression through the various levels is more dependent on proven ability than on years of service which helps put you in charge of your own career.
In addition to the new employee orientation programme, which facilitates your smooth integration into the firm, each practice has its own formal training programme to develop the skills and tools you’ll need. However, most of your learning will happen “on the job”, working on individual projects and interacting with more senior and experienced team members. In addition, you will be assigned a mentor or performance manager who will help you identify your own goals and develop the best route for achieving them. Regular meetings with your mentor will give you invaluable feedback so you can identify your strengths and the areas that need further work.
The Interview Process
Once you have applied, you can expect two or three rounds of interviews, depending on the practice and location.
Final-round interviews generally are conducted at the local office and usually introduce you to representatives from various levels of your chosen practice. The interview will include some business analysis to assess your level of experience, as well as a more general discussion. You also will have the chance to ask questions. In addition, some practices may ask you to discuss a case based on a real-life business situation. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to structure your thoughts in response to a complex challenge.
