Prism Executive Recruitment is very much a niche specialist, mainly focussed on placing mid-senior level candidates with recent experience gained as a permanent consulting employee within an established UK management consultancy employer, in a permanent consultancy related role.
Many of our clients are consulting firms or are corporates seeking management consultants and unfortunately they will only pay us a fee for finding candidates with such experience: invariably they are seeking a close match and not willing to compromise.
We are therefore not able to assist with a career change into a management consultancy role or those seeking a first move after leaving University.
In our experience direct approaches to consulting firms and people in your network in target employers are likely to be the best route for you if you are wanting to consider options in management consultancy.
