About the role

We are recognised by our customers for the calibre of our people and integration of social value and sustainability into our work, as demonstrated by our finalist status in 2023 in both the Management Consultancy Awards and Energy Industry Council Awards. We are looking to build on this success by growing our services in strategy, organisational design and change management.

As a Principal Consultant you will use a mix of strong business acumen, core consulting skills, technical professional skills and leadership experience to work with our customers to provide independent, impartial advice and expertise, enabling them to achieve the outcomes that they deserve. In doing this, you will support customers to develop their own skills to deliver sustainable, beneficial change.

This is a full-time role and will require a mix of remote, hybrid and onsite working, where this may be in any of our offices including London, Bath or on customer sites. Travel will be required and may require overnight stays depending on location of work.

About you

We require people with a combination of technical and softer skills – how you do things is as important as what you do. The success in this role demands a highly developed collaborative nature, exceptional communication and empathy balancing strong strategic and analytical orientation.

Successful candidates will:

  • Have demonstrable experience of working in and delivering strategic and change projects and programmes in Agile and/or Waterfall delivery in complex environments.
  • Experience (at least three years) in projects underpinned by technical skills in one or more areas of strategy, organisational design, target operating model development, business analysis business architecture and change management.
  • Able to flexibly select, combine and apply your own technical knowledge and specialisms to address any particular customer problem.
  • Articulate methodologies, evaluation, and results in a straightforward, understandable, and non-technical manner.
  • Be an independently minded critical thinker able to navigate complexity and delivering change.
