Business Analyst Intern - Sept 2021 intake
Established in 2000, Efficio is a specialist management consultancy, focused on procurement and supply chain improvement programmes. There are currently c.450 employees globally, and we have exciting plans to grow rapidly in the next 18 months. We are a truly international organisation with over 30 different languages spoken under our roof. The firm places a high value on its employees and offers great training and development opportunities, to help with career progression. Our consultants typically return to their home office each Friday from their client engagement to spend time with their colleagues and attend training courses.
Efficio is looking to hire a consulting intern to join project teams working on consulting assignments for a programme starting in September 2021 for 6 months. This is a fantastic opportunity for recent graduates to gain experience at a fast-growing management consulting firm.
Interns will begin with a week of rigorous training led by our experienced consultants and adapted for the programme. After that, they will be assigned to a project where, under the guidance of an experienced consultant, interns will play an active role in many aspects of client engagement. The role will entail collecting, analysing, and synthesising large data sets from a variety of sources by mastering the use of Excel and SQL. The insights and understandings from this analysis will provide important inputs to the project team’s recommendations and solutions.
Interns are also expected to provide input on client presentations, and work alongside the Digital team to support the day-to-day delivery of projects – for example, they may assist with developing and issuing RFPs, and evaluating proposals from suppliers via our eFlow platform. Interns will interact with clients and their suppliers as needed.
With such a fast ramp-up and involvement in client facing projects, interns will need to be able to learn fast, get up to speed quickly and work effectively under pressure. They must be able to work independently, while also being a team player who is willing to contribute wherever needed to ensure the success of the project. The ability to prioritise work effectively in the face of sometimes competing demands is also essential.
Efficio has a collaborative, supportive culture where performance is recognised, and success is celebrated. Interns will each be assigned a consulting mentor outside of their project to support them throughout their time at the company. We understand that work alone cannot make the programme fulfilling which is why we have also planned a series of socials and networking events for interns to support teambuilding and provide opportunities to learn more about Efficio and management consulting in general.
The opportunities and support that come from a role as an Efficio intern make it an unmatched springboard into a top-tier consulting career. There is an opportunity to receive a full-time job offer if performance expectations are met.
This internship will take place remotely, in our London office or on client site depending on government guidelines and client preferences at the time.
