Are you passionate about business strategy? Do you thrive on making the hard stuff easy for your clients? Do you want to support the delivery of truly transformational change?

As a Consultant in our growing Business Consulting practice you will help clients define and deliver their business strategy. You will bring innovative digital thinking and have experience of the newest and most exciting technologies. We deliver our assignments using multi-disciplinary teams who accelerate and de-risk the path from ‘idea’ to ‘value’.

Our consultants have typically built their expertise through careers in industry and in consulting. All have deep sector and technology expertise across products, operations and platforms. We support clients with broad capabilities, deep business insight and a culture of innovation.

Who you’ll be working with

We’re growing. And we’re looking to do things a little differently. Because of this, we’re currently building our advisory and strategy services, of which Financial Services will be one of our key focuses.

This will include support from the Head of Financial Services as well as the Head of Business Consulting to help you guide your career. We’ll also expect that you continue to develop your Financial Services knowledge as you progress with BJSS. For consultants who join BJSS, this will mean building on previous knowledge or developing both expertise and experience across one of our core propositions.
