We offer faster progression, better pay, more opportunities and a good deal more excitement and adventure than you are likely to find at other consultancies. You will also be working on clients and issues that have a beneficial impact on the world rather than spinning for corporates.

- Self starting / disciplined - we know this is a generic request that all companies make, but in our current stage of growth, it is a necessity.
- Entrepreneurial spirit, and enthusiasm for joining a young growing business.
- Demonstrable interest and achievement in an extra-curricular field is also of interest, though not essential.
How to apply - Cover letters are repetitive and time-consuming, and and rarely provide much insight! So instead... we'd like you to leave us a voicemail: 020 3858 7805.
Please let us know what you want from your work/career, why you are an exceptional candidate, and anything else you think we should know. We look forward to listening and will get in touch for more information if you seem like the right sort of person!
