The employer:

Our client is a high growth boutique CIO advisory and IT management consulting firm that combines IT strategy, management consultancy and transformation services to help manage change and meet business challenges.

Although a smaller firm the scale and impact of their projects and their clients is anything but!

Their capabilities are around “CIO advisory” including IT and Digital Strategy, Target Operating Model, Service Management, Strategic Sourcing, Risk Control and Security, Financial Management and IT Delivery.

The role:

They are entering the next phase of their ambitious growth plans which requires consultants who can develop and grow as fast as the firm will.

As a result, they are actively hiring at Management Consultant and Senior Management Consultant level.

Roles will involve working across the firm’s clients and projects: on one you might be defining the IT strategy or target operating model: on another you might review a CIO’s sourcing for a public sector body or take on cost benefit evaluations for a bank.

Management consultants will operate at a senior level, take on significant responsibility and help to shape and influence the business of both their clients and their firm.
