We are looking for graduates from a variety of degree backgrounds. If you have a technical degree, you will need a real passion for business. Likewise, if you have a business focussed degree, you must have a keen interest in technology. You must love working with others in a team-focussed environment, be willing to take ownership of challenging tasks, be flexible and happy to travel and work at client locations….and above all your imagination and drive must inspire us.

Roles and Opportunities

We have opportunities in both business and technical consulting.

Our Technical Consultants create innovative solutions to help clients meet their largest transformational challenges. They focus on growing a strong set of technical and consulting skills, then progressing onto solution design and technical leadership roles at increasing levels of responsibility.

The role of a Business Consultant is to work where business and technology converge. They partner clients to explore their most challenging business problems, bring new insights, offer perceptive advice and develop innovative solutions across a range of areas including strategy and processes, asset management, transformational projects and change.
