To achieve this, we strive to have the best brains in the business to generate the most innovative ideas and strategic advice for our clients. As such, we are looking to identify a talented individual to play a key role on the management team which will genuinely make a positive difference to our company.

To the right candidate, we will offer the dynamism, autonomy and opportunity for growth that comes from a small and personal employment environment without the bureaucracy, work-life sacrifices and restrictive career development associated with ‘global’ consulting environments.
