are seeking a broad range of people to join us, from junior to director level.

Your experience could

be from a range of industries or

sectors, but we are looking for people with demonstrable commercial acumen. Knowledge

of Scrum (Agile) development process would be a bonus.

Skills & Knowledge


– strong analytical and strategic thinking skills are required. You’ll need

to be able to delve into the detail, without losing sight of the bigger

picture. The ideal candidates will have the ability to juggle rapidly

changing priorities, multi-task, switch context between projects and bring

ideas to life at speed.


– you need to be a good communicator, someone who can put across a compelling

perspective and hold their own in debates. Our business is complex and the

best communicators can distil complex situations and explain in a way that

others can understand. You also need to be an engaging speaker, able to keep

the attention

of others whilst getting your

message across.

People – the heart of our business is our people and

you’ll need strong people skills to be successful. You should be comfortable

working in teams, both real and virtual, and networking at all levels in the

organisation. You need to be comfortable interacting with a range of external

and internal stakeholders including clients.

Technology – we are looking for people who are tech-savvy;

business digitalisation is important to us and it needs to be for you too.

You need to be familiar with MS Office and hopefully more – everyone can use

PowerPoint, but can you use Prezi, Visme or Haiku Deck?

Drive – you must be a self-starter and quick learner able

to get things done with a minimum level of guidance/supervision and should be

ready to work independently or in a team. We are looking for problem solvers

who can see an issue and fix it.

A high level of motivation, flexibility, drive,

and personal commitment is essential.

of UK security clearance, don’t worry, we can help you to apply for it as part

of the recruitment process but ideally you will have been resident in the UK

for a minimum of the last 5 years in order to obtain clearance.

You need to

be willing to undertake some travel; our clients are spread around the UK and

internationally. Being able to drive is a big plus. Longer-term international

assignments may also be available for those willing to go overseas.

Our ideal

candidates will be full-time, but we are willing to consider part-time

candidates if we think you can add something to our team.

What to do next?

If you are

interested, submit your CV and a covering letter telling us why we should

hire you (try to keep the letter to less than 2 sides of A4 – this is not an

MBA dissertation!).

The best

applicants make it easy for us to see how you match what we want; tell us

what skills, knowledge and experience you can bring and how you can make a

difference. We understand that the content of MBA’s can vary, so please put

the subjects/modules you studied on your CV.

we find the right people.
