Consulting is a relatively young sector, and first emerged as a legitimate employment field only as recently as the 1950's. Today, it provides jobs for more than 80,000 people and generates upwards of £8.5 billion in revenue. Typically, consultants are experts in their industry, and have either retired from successful careers or are still actively working in relevant roles.
A wide range of diverse UK firms offer consultation services. While some specialise solely in management, many others offer expertise related to outsourcing, IT, energy, and a host of other specific business needs. Strategic consultancy and outsourcing advisory are two common specialisms sought after by recruitment agencies, but there is a wide variety of unique employment opportunity available in the sector.
The vast majority of jobs are London-based, and salaries tend to be significantly higher there than elsewhere in the UK. Salaries can vary between £20K and £75K, but the overall industry average is close to £40K. Though a number of small firms account for a large percentage of employment in the field, and independent consultancy is also a viable option, the three largest employers in the sector are Accenture, Towers Watson, and Oliver Wyman.
Our Contracts team provides Ltd company contractors with opportunities across the Defence, Aerospace, Nuclear, Energy & Renewables sectors.
