The role

We are looking to hire talented people with a track record of delivery. You may have started your career at another consultancy and are looking to move somewhere with a different approach more tailored to client need. Alternatively, you may have successfully delivered from within a company and now feel ready to expand your own skills and work in a more project based way to advise others.

As part of the Strategy & Transformation team you will be supporting real clients facing real challenges and provide strategic thinking and innovative solution development from problem concept through to delivery by:

* Working with clients to set and realise strategies for change
* Working with central government clients to transform services for citizens and local authorities
* Reviewing existing feasibility studies, masterplans and risk assessments to make robust and clear proposals and business cases that will challenge and validate realisation of benefits
* Designing and creating programmes to support major transformations to ways of operating e.g. across staff and locations
* Using analysis, modelling and technology to support decision making to meet the challenges of increased competition and expectations e.g. increasing student retention or supporting a major new investment
* Utilising innovative technology, structures, systems and people change to design and deliver objectives efficiently

About you

The successful candidate will be given significant responsibility for client-facing work from day one. All our consultants are expected to have regular interactions with clients, to lead work-streams or projects, and to support senior colleagues in delivering specific project outputs.

* You demonstrate high level of problem-solving ability in relation to technically complex or conceptually abstract ideas
* You present complex solutions and concepts effectively and make persuasive cases based on analysis
* You have a variety of consulting capabilities and techniques to suit different situations. These might include strategy development, research, analysis, organisational development, culture change, IT-enabled change, business process analysis, change impact assessment, coaching and/or mentoring; training development and delivery

Practice and service development

* You are an excellent team player with the ability to communicate and engage at all levels with a variety of stakeholders
* You can demonstrate an ability to transfer skills and knowledge to colleagues
* You are proactive in your approach to work and enjoy working with a variety of people as well as being comfortable with progressing work independently

Business development

* You either have experience or potential to support or contribute to the sale of Business Consulting work - including bid development and presentation delivery

* An ability to deal with competing tasks and operate successfully even when under pressure
* A strong emotional intelligence and the ability to flex your style to suit different stakeholders, and is confident and self-assured in putting forward your views and able to hold your own with senior stakeholders

You will be in a trusted, supported position, primarily client based, where you are able to apply both existing skills and develop new skills in complex and challenging situations.
