About Consulting Projects

We’re a lively, intelligent team of ambitious professionals. Our network of top management & strategy consultants, project & programme managers and industry experts deliver strategic, analytical and change contracts for private equity firms, leading consultancies and corporate strategy clients. We take a truly consultative approach to sales, fostering long-term relationships with clients through strategic partnerships.

The Role

You’ll take over a warm desk with a fantastic portfolio of existing clients which – naturally – you’ll be expected to add to. You’ll have a high level of autonomy and plenty of opportunities for growth.  Reporting to the team Head, your responsibilities will include:

  • Client relationship management: booking meetings with existing clients; taking detailed role and project briefs; advising on complex project design; managing client-side sales and delivery process 
  • Strategic account development: networking within existing accounts to identify new contacts and opportunities for the team and the wider business; working with clients to create new product offerings 
  • New business development: identifying and introducing the business to new clients via research, referrals, networking, events and creative marketing campaigns

In addition, you’ll get involved with process improvement, product development and training and mentoring.

Development & progression

We have clear career paths and a transparent promotion process and we look for people who are keen to take ownership of their role and responsibility for their progression. We will support you to do this with:

  • Extensive training delivered via targeted sessions and on-the-job monitoring
  • Weekly line management meetings
  • Bi-annual appraisals

What we’re looking for

  • Top academic profile: 2.1 (or above) from a leading university; minimum AAB at A Level
  • Relevant experience: 2 years+ experience in recruitment, account management, sales or business development
  • Drive tenacity, passion: you’ll care deeply about providing a great service; you’ll have a proven track record of exceeding targets by delivering on existing relationships and proactively opening up new ones; you’ll demonstrate originality and enthusiasm in your approach to challenges
  • Professional credibility: well-informed and on top of market and industry trends, you’ll possess both the understanding of business issues and the confidence, gravitas and exceptional verbal and written communications skills required to establish consultative, trust-based relationships with high calibre clients 
  • A strong commercial mindset: you’ll have excellent negotiation skills and a nose for new opportunities 
  • An excellent self-manager: with turnaround times of 3-5 days and little pipeline visibility the pace is fast: you’ll need to be able to deliver quality while juggling multiple projects 
  • A natural collaborator: you’ll approach every aspect of your role with integrity and you’ll thrive in a team environment with a high level of partnership working
