<< Back to Advisory

Our Technology programme gives you the opportunity to work with the world’s leading organisations throughout the UK and internationally. Our work isn’t about providing ‘off-the shelf’ solutions; our consultants focus on helping our clients identify and solve their most complex business problems.

What will I be doing?

You will be working within our Information Technology Advisory (IT Advisory) business helping our clients to deliver technology-enabled business transformation programmes to realise sustainable benefits.

We do this by combining our technology knowledge with extensive experience in helping organisations improve their performance. This may be across the entire enterprise or may focus on specific parts of an organisation such as the finance function, supply chain/operations or sales and marketing. There is no limit as to what you can get involved in – from working as part of a bid team to redesigning processes and procedures or advising clients on the development and implementation of technology solutions.

Our people provide independent technology and business advice to help our clients to:

  • transform the way that technology supports their organisation to make a ‘step change’ in business performance and return on investment
  • design and implement technology solutions (e.g. SAP) as part of the delivery of major business change programmes
  • maximise the benefit from new technologies and concepts (for example Smart Metering, Mobile Payments)
  • strengthen the internal IT organisation by delivering improvements with respect to the organisation’s data, digital assets, technology and people
  • define the target operating model and proposing initiatives to reduce technology acquisition, implementation and operating costs
  • recover existing technology enabled projects and programmes that have lost their way

What training and development will I receive within the first few years?

The breadth and challenge of our fast-track rotational scheme offers you the chance to be promoted to Senior Consultant after just 2 to 3 years or potentially earlier for the highest performers.

You’ll start with an intensive induction course to develop your core consulting skills. This will be followed by advanced training courses every 3 months to hone these skills through our structured training programme. You’ll also have the opportunity to get a solid grounding in finance and business law through the CIMA foundation qualification (The ACP programme has been awarded “Gold” Quality Training Partner status by CIMA).

You'll undertake Technology specific training courses to help you develop specialist technology skills to help you achieve your career goals. You will also be assigned a personal counsellor and receive the encouragement of, and exposure to, senior members of our organisation. This will allow you to shape your career and achieve your potential.

What clients will I work with?

Your client base will largely depend on whether you elect to join our Financial Services or our UK & Ireland practice.

Our Financial Services practice serves the leading investment banks, retail banks, insurers and asset managers. Our UK&I practice serves Public Sector, Utilities, Consumer Products, Manufacturing and Technology clients.

What do we look for and where can I find out more?

We are looking for graduates who are inquisitive, analytical, ambitious, great at working with people and have an interest in technology. You’ll need to be a good team player and demonstrate the potential to become a future business leader. You’ll need to be prepared to challenge us, to act on your own initiative and to make an impact on our teams and clients from day one.
