Salary: £110000 - £150000 per annum + Bens + excellent bonus

Location: England, London

Recruiter: Nicola Connolly

Industry: Consultancy

Job Reference: SH5673NC


Fabulous opportunity to join a recognised international boutique Consultancy who have a growth mandate - they plan to double the size of the organisation over the next 7 years. Due to success - they are ready to grow and present a fantastic opportunity for top tier candidates to achieve their goal faster than in a mainstream consulting environment.

My client will be highly selective for this role. Your CV needs to be solid and able demonstrate you are ambitious, you have thought about your career to date and know where you want to go.

They need finishers - someone who always delivers - ideally you have a background which includes a top tier education, working in a leading deals team from another consultancy along with experience in operational performance improvement from industry.

Currently top heavy with high utilisation, the practice for performance improvement have just had a good year! They are creating a diamond shape - to allow for promotion.

Another difference between this Consultancy and some of the bigger consultancies is that there is no more audit chanel - they do things now! Also they believe in work/life balance and have the ability to offer the flexibility in work to allow them to recruit the best individuals possible. Yes there will be some travel - however when at home your weekends and evenings will be your own. They consider your personal time as belonging to you.

For their senior business model they need a Snr Manager/Jnr Director level individual.

The business is performance improvement - how to keep companies in business and wealthy. Looking at areas such as cost reduction, restructuring, M&A -making P&L as efficient as possible. Implementation of a new operational strategy. Fundamental projects are looking at companies in distress, underperforming - change them into performing.

Your role will be to take out the complexity and to turn things around.

My client has 'rescued' and taken through separation various leading organisations.

This role is very 'hands on' delivery role. Working in teams of 2-3 per engagement (you get to work very closely with the client). Looking for someone who is mature, entrepreneurial, 'impactful' and gets things done. You will be the key link in the project and must be able to manage workable workstreams and projects.

My client is looking for someone wanting to push to achieve better. Typically on projects you will be working with 'C'suite' level - ie COO/CFO/Chief Strategy Officer.

Sector agnostic - ideally you will have worked in a sector with a 'product'. Sectors of interest include automotive, consumer goods & retail, aerospace, manufacturing, food distribution and supply chain, mining and energy sectors. UK work experience essential.

To be right for the role:

You need to be a self starter, able to make decisions and to deliver. However they do work in a very collaborative way and cultural fit is highly important to them.

The role is intellectually stimulating, they need you to have expertise of working at a top tier Consulting firm where you have worked on M&A/performance improvement (used to working in a corporate finance environment with M&A, or operational restructuring) and have excellent financial analysis expertise, together with having worked in a similar role in industry. Your academics need to be first rate - ideally with an MBA. To be right for this role you may be already a Senior Manager or Jnr Director elsewhere.

You do need to have studied at leading institution and an 'engineering' type of degree would certainly be beneficial.

Languages would be very useful too. ie Italian, German, French & Spanish.



This an outstanding opportunity for the right individual who is serious about their career progression in Management Consultancy.
