‘They've got lots of integrity, they are very creative, clever and quite alternative... they can bring something quite special to most problems which most businesses will face.’
Ben Wishart, Group CIO, Ahold
We started life on the first day of the new century with an ambition to do interesting work with interesting people. Now, more than midway through our second decade, we have bases in the UK and US and we continue to work throughout Europe.
The work we do can’t be pigeonholed – it’s multi-faceted, creative and always bespoke. We’re looking for people who are equally multi-faceted, creative and unpigeonholeable. We’ve created a business in which we want to work, and we’re growing, fast. If you think you’d like to work here too, we’d love to hear from you.
We support a range of causes that encourage us to open our minds, think differently and help improve people’s lives.
We’ve sponsored and actively supported TEDx Exeter for the past five years – a partnership which we continue to build on. We regularly donate to charities such as Restless Development to help empower young people around the world. We also offer pro bono work where we can add value through our time and insights, for example, delivering a team development day with Restless Development.
We guest lecture at a range of universities, and in the countries where we work we offer paid internships to help people onto the job ladder. We like nothing better than eating and exercising, so we do both in equal measure to fundraise for a range of charities.
Corporate responsibility and sustainability are close to all our hearts, and as individuals we’re involved in many more causes and projects. Collectively we are committed to building on the work we’ve done and the difference we’ve made so far, and we’ll be highlighting new initiatives as they get underway.
summer intern working in US
I’m in my third year at the university of Missouri studying psychology. My dad had been working on a big change project at Walgreens with “some crazy British guys”. I was curious about business consulting, so I went to chat to them and found myself on a six-week internship working on a business transformation programme.
What I loved about it was that I wasn’t just the intern. People asked me for my opinion. I got to shadow consultants and help with presentations and facilitation. I felt like part of the team. I also did three research projects: on what makes great leadership, cultural differences by state, and retail trends.
The experience showed me that being a full time consultant would be amazing. You’re engaging people at such a level that you are helping them to better themselves and adapt to change. I really miss it now I’m back at college. I would recommend it to anyone, especially anyone who’s passionate about helping people to change and wanting to be part of a movement.
I can’t thank the team enough. The experience has really turned things around for me. I now know what I want to be – I’m passionate about my classes again, I’m more effective, I know how to get people thinking. I’ve really learned how to help people to change by asking, not telling. It just helps me feel better about myself.
