About the UK Change team:

Every medium or large project in the UK is managed by the Change team, from its inception to final delivery into the business.

The role:

Over the course of your placement you will have the opportunity to work alongside other Change professionals (Project Managers & Business Analysts) as well as lead your own projects. Our previous graduate Business Consultants have benefitted from the support of their colleagues as well as the autonomy to tackle something meaty, early on in their placements.

Over your placement you will develop a heightened commercial awareness & gain a defined set of skills in project management and business analysis. All of which will stand you in good stead whatever direction your career takes you.

Our must-haves:

  • Change is not a scary word to you. You thrive in organisations that constantly adapt and evolve
  • You enjoy a fast paced and varied working day where you are given the freedom to voice & exercise your own ideas
  • You have a collaborative working style where to be successful you need to draw the best out in others
  • You’re not frightened by detailed data or process analysis, then switching to a high level project plan or pulling a senior management presentation together
