What you’d do
As a graduate, you can choose to start your career in Management Consulting, building core skills on a two-year, market-leading structured programme where you’ll experience the full range of what we do, across all industries. This will give you a taste of helping clients drive innovation and growth, manage cost and operate effectively. The experience will help you decide where you want to specialise within Consulting. Or, if you’d rather specialise straight away, you can join one of three consulting practices:
In Strategy Consulting you’ll address the key strategic issues on the minds of CEOs and senior executives. The advice you’ll offer covers both corporate strategy – such as market entry, competitive strategy and organisation structure – and merger & acquisition strategy, helping private equity investors with the strategic aspects of deals.
In Economics Consulting you’ll advise high-profile, senior-level clients in the public and private sectors, providing key insights and evidence to help inform their businesses and shape their organisations. Our work addresses the most complex business and policy issues facing our clients: navigating competition and state aid investigations and commercial disputes; designing and implementing market reform; and developing strategies for growth.
In Risk Consulting you’ll help in establishing risk management as an integral part of clients’ management processes and decision-making framework. You’ll assist clients in meeting the expectations of their stakeholders and regulators so that they maintain capital surpluses to meet their liabilities, even if a number of extreme risks materialise.
In Sustainability & Climate Change Consulting you’ll help clients embed sustainability in their strategies and throughout their organisations, while making the most of the opportunities for innovation and growth created by a world economy that’s becoming greener.
Your training and development:
Our people make us stand out as a business. So we choose the best and invest heavily in them. You’ll benefit from the encouragement, opportunity and support which includes:
- Our graduate training programme helps you gain breadth as well as depth of knowledge and build a portfolio of valuable, transferable skills.
- Movement throughout the organisation – you’ll work in different teams and offices, experience different clients and projects; try out new roles and even sample other business areas.
