Here at BJSS we’re on a mission to transform our clients’ businesses by bringing innovative thinking and cutting-edge business and tech solutions within an outstanding team, to help clients create long-term value and build lasting relationships. We’re now searching for our next set of future consultants to join us on our mission.

What are the entry criteria?

We’re looking for curious, bright-minded, and driven individuals who like to challenge the norm and push boundaries. Its not just for graduates! To qualify you’ll need either a graduate degree, minimum 2:2, or evidence of relevant qualifications to a high industry-level standard, or relevant work experience.

You must have analytical and quantitative problem-solving skills and a keen interest in digital technology as well as the ability to work collaboratively with stakeholders and communicate complex ideas effectively.

Where will I be based?

The bulk of our Consulting team is based from London so this will be your home office, however it is important you show willingness to travel and visit our clients in other locations as well as the ability to work remotely too. The level of flexibility will depend on the client project you are working on.

What will I learn?

You’ll find a typical day in the BJSS Consulting Academy to be engaging, stimulating and informative. We will support you to develop your core consulting skills and provide you with exposure to all aspects of Management Consulting across a broad variety of industries and across each of our core services which include:

  • Organisational Transformation & Change
  • Technology Advisory
  • Operational Excellence & Automation
  • Programme Consulting
  • Sustainable Business Solutions

What does the Academy involve?

The BJSS Consulting Academy will accelerate your career by providing you with exposure to a variety of clients, industries and project roles. From day one, we will support you with a comprehensive programme, guiding you through your critical first eighteen months. Key components of our comprehensive programme are:

  • A comprehensive learning and development syllabus, designed to guide you through to the next Consultant grade
  • During your first three months, you will be part of our Incubator Programme, that provides the opportunity for you to work on structured, supported projects in order to develop your core consulting skills
  • You’ll have a dedicated Academy team that will continuously invest the time to understand you and your career ambitions, and provide you with the guidance and support you need to be successful in your role
  • A rotation process through each of our core services, learning core consulting skills from industry experts and the chance to build your network across BJSS
  • We provide a comprehensive social and community programme which will allow you to build your network, give back to the community, but most of all have a lot of fun!

How will I be supported?

You will have many people to support you through your journey in Consulting.

You’ll have a Squad Lead and they will be your ‘go-to-person’ and will be there to support with your career at BJSS. You’ll have regular one-to-ones with your Squad Lead to discuss your personal development and career and ask for any help you need.

Our Academy team will also support you throughout your time with us, to ensure you are getting what you need from our scheme.

Finally, you’ll be assigned a buddy who will welcome you to the team and help guide you through the early stages of your career.

What is the interview process?

We’ve tried to keep the interview process as simple as possible and to give you the opportunity to let your skills and potential shine through. We are keen to hear about the capabilities and experience you have gained in a previous workspace, university, and/or extra-curricular activities.

Once you apply by submitting a copy of your CV, our friendly Talent Team will give you a call to find out more about you, give you further details about the role, and answer any initial questions you may have.

If you’re suitable for the role we will invite you to an interview where you will have the opportunity to speak with one of our experienced Consultants. We’ll discuss the role further, your strengths and skills you could bring to BJSS, and answer any further questions you have.

We’ll then invite you to an Assessment Day which will be a combination of a panel interview and a group activity. Here we will be assessing your ability to approach problems, present findings, articulate yourself, and engage the group effectively and with confidence.
