Graduate Consulting Strategy& London 2021
Strategy& is our Strategy Consulting practice. You’ll work on interesting and varied assignments – from helping a company identify attractive new markets, advising a private equity client on game‑changing investments, to supporting industry leaders solve their toughest corporate and mergers and acquisitions challenges.
We organise ourselves in two market-winning teams – Corporate Strategy and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Strategy. We work together to bring the best to our clients, and we offer a unique, powerful, and distinctive combination of capabilities that allows us to develop and deliver world-class strategies.
As a graduate you’ll be aligned to one of our two teams, but occasionally you’ll experience working in both as we often resource projects together, providing you the opportunity to transfer your skills across our Strategy& practice.
Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.
