Are you interested in a career in management consultancy? Do you want the opportunity to get early exposure to top-tier private equity clients whilst working for a leading boutique consultancy? Would you like the option of combining the intellectual rigour of a city job with the lifestyle of living in the South West? If so, then a career at CIL Management Consultants may well be for you.

CIL is a UK-based consulting firm with a market-leading position within our niche. Most of our engagements involve an M&A element, primarily to provide commercial due diligence for leading private equity firms. We also provide strategy consulting to a variety of companies, from global blue chips to the UK’s most successful smaller businesses. We work across a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, IT, financial services, energy, manufacturing, leisure, business services and many others.

Like all consulting firms, we are only as good as our people. In order to continue our strong growth we want to recruit bright, motivated graduates to join us in both our London and Frome offices.  We have two intakes in 2016 – April and September.

The role:

We have two offices – one in London and one in Frome, near Bath in the South West. Our London office is based in The City, close to Bank and St Paul’s tube stations. Through our Frome office, we can offer outstanding opportunities to pursue a career that has the pace and challenge of a city role while enjoying the benefits of working in beautiful Somerset. The vibrant cities of Bristol and Bath are just a short drive away.

The analyst role is the first stage in a strategy consultant’s career. It is a highly demanding job – we will expect a lot from you, but you will receive first class training and will gain valuable experience with which to build a successful career. We offer:

  • A high quality training programme delivered within a hugely supportive learning environment (including structured training modules to take you from analyst to partner and the opportunity to take the CIMA exams within your first 18 months)
  • Rapid progression & career development opportunities, with exposure to investors and management teams right from the start
  • Competitive remuneration
  • 26 days holiday entitlement with option to take an additional 5 days
  • Regular company events & socials
  • A healthy work/life balance and support to pursue activities & interests outside of work

What CIL people are like:

We have a team of 60 highly qualified, highly skilled people. Successful CIL people share some key attributes:

  • Strong academic background (degree disciplines include languages, engineering, physics, philosophy and business) from a world class university
  • Intellectual horsepower and curiosity
  • Motivation and ambition, able to stand on their own two feet
  • Strong team working and people skills
  • Outstanding numeracy, written and verbal communication skills
  • A keen sense of humour and broad shoulders.

Although we work in structured project teams, we are socially very equal, lively and inclusive. There are no corner offices, no private fiefdoms, no PAs, no cliques – we work in open-plan offices and are not political. We think ‘a culture’ is something larger firms have to invent. Ours is the product of the individuals we employ.

We are supportive, non-hierarchical, hard-working, unpretentious and direct. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and tend to tease those that do. We also encourage our people to pursue activities outside of work and keep their hobbies & interests from university going.

We have very strict qualification criteria. These are:

  1. 2.i or higher undergraduate degree from a top 20 UK or world class university, any discipline
  2. At the time of starting their employment, the successful candidate must have the right to work in the UK
  3. Excellent numeracy and completely fluent written and spoken English – other languages an advantage
