Transformation is in our DNA. Our unique combination of strategy, technology and management consulting expertise positions us as the go-to specialists for strategy-led, digitally-enabled, results-driven transformation programmes. Through transformation, we improve the way our clients operate; manage costs; better align people, process and technology initiatives; support business growth to maintain or improve competitive edge. In doing so, we focus on their strategic objectives and the big issues they need to deal with, both today and in the future.
You can choose to start in Management Consulting, where you’ll develop your core consulting and technical skills and gain a breadth of experience through a variety of roles, either across industries or engagements. Our Consulting practice has been in the top three for The Times Top 100 Graduate Employer of Choice for Consulting, for the past seven consecutive years. We’ve also been externally recognised within the industry, winning two Management Consultancies Association Awards.
What you’ll do:
You’ll typically find yourself working as part of a team of anything from 2 to 30 people or more. Our client projects are resourced nationally, so travelling and living away from home may be required. When you are not on a project you are expected to be based out of your home office.
You’ll spend a lot of time with clients at their base locations dealing with issues as they arise, and gaining valuable exposure to different types of projects, internal and external, and diverse industries. You’ll carry out detailed analysis and help make recommendations that change our clients’ businesses. This experience, combined with deep technical training, an emphasis on continual learning through different projects and the opportunity to work on internal support roles to gain specialist knowledge from within the network, will equip you with the skills to really make a difference.
What you’ll gain:
You will study towards the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting as part of the Level 4 Junior Management Consulting apprenticeship. As a leading firm, we design our programmes to give you a great student experience, weaving formal learning with work experience and internal training. By taking this approach we’ll provide you with a streamlined journey throughout your apprenticeship with us.
What you’ll need:
Minimum requirements are 112 UCAS tariff from up to three full A-Levels or equivalent (not including General Studies or Critical Thinking), and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics.
Exams must have been taken in the same sitting and resits are accepted only where modules or papers have been retaken in the same academic year. If you have any extenuating circumstances related to your exam marks or the sequencing of your exams, please declare this on your application and this will be considered as we review your application.
