At First Consulting, your talent is brought to light.
We are not organised in strict departments, sectors or specialities. At First Consulting, everyone is a consultant: free to move between process, technology and change. Besides that, you’re also free to move between clients and different sectors. This way, you can keep growing and excel in the area that suits you the most. For every project we bring together the right people and create a team that is optimised in tackling specific issues. This variation in teams makes sure that everyone knows each other and fosters a close bond between all our colleagues. This is something our clients also really appreciate.
After graduating from university, I spent time working for a development charity in Ghana where we applied basic consulting techniques to help various start ups. Since then, I knew consulting was the career I wanted to move into which drew me first to a Business Change Role in London, before moving to First Consulting in January 2018. I currently work in the Business Technology domain, where I am part of a close-knit team developing functional apps in an agile way. Aside from work, I like to wind down by running, cycling and being outdoors with friends – all balanced with time spent eating and drinking round the many spots that London has to offer!
Having graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2011, I joined the graduate scheme at Accenture. While at Accenture I gained experience as a Technology Consulting working across a variety of different industries. After 5 years, it was time for a fresh challenge and First Consulting was the perfect fit to take my career forward. What really drew me to First was the energetic atmosphere and the enthusiasm that was displayed by the people who work here. Since joining, I have been impressed by the calibre of people at First, adopting a result orientated mindset with project work alongside a passion for personal development. Outside of work, I love travelling, playing football and going to the gym.
I graduated from King’s College London in 2015, after which I worked as a Training consultant and Project manager for ERP implementations. After two years, I began looking for a position where I could combine collaborative working with analytical problem solving. At First Consulting, I have the opportunity to practice both and work on a variety of projects ranging from business technology to process. Outside of work, I enjoy practicing yoga, exercising, travelling and spending time with friends and family.
Since starting my consultancy career back in 2002, I’ve been very fortunate to work with some amazing clients across a number of industries, from; Consumer Goods, large Oil & Gas and Utilities clients, helping them to deliver their IT transformation journeys and advising them on the latest technology and digital opportunities. Working within the Business Technology Consulting space at First Consulting, I help our clients understand how to deliver the value from latest digital technology advances. Outside of the office I’m a keen mountain biker, searching out the best trails in the Surry countryside.
Since joining First Consulting UK in 2018 I have continued to develop my expertise in the fields of RPA and project management. Having previously worked at several large corporations within the insurance industry and at a major professional services firm, I was keen to join a small, entrepreneurial organisation which would allow me to grow alongside the business and really feel part of the team. First Consulting has delivered this and more in an environment which promotes success, learning and fun at the same time. The annual company ski trip is one of the highlights of the year, but I also enjoy keeping fit and healthy when I’m not catching up with friends and trying out new restaurants in London.
Each and every one of our consultants are highly analytical. Any new situation is easily figured out and they can quickly distinguish what is fundamental and what is not. A healthy balance of ambition, determination, experience and academic background: A-levels with a technical or analytical academic study. Physics, Econometrics, Computer Science, Technical Engineering, Economics, Aerospace Engineering and Psychology are among the most common studies. At First Consulting, we won’t just hire you just because you’re intelligent, we’re far more interested in strong personalities. Together, social and authenticity are the pillars that guide this. The balance of intelligence to good social skills is key.
With us, applying for a job is no-nonsense
We’re looking for the top 5%.
Our internal recruitment team are all also consultants. Your meeting with us will therefore always be with someone whose main focus is project work and who can answer your questions about the company and the role. We don’t work with overcomplicated assessments either – we just do four ‘talks,’ the first of which will always be with someone of the same level as the position you are applying for. Your final talk will always be with a partner at First Consulting, and after that we’ll know for sure if you’re the right person to reinforce our team – and so will you.
What we are really looking for are people who excel, and they don’t just fall out of the sky. Just 5% of our candidates receive a contract. We only take exceptional people who fit with our culture and values – if you think that’s you then send your CV and accompanying cover letter to
Still a close-knit company culture.
Modern-day consulting is not just in close liaison with the client, but increasingly requires a physical presence at the client’s workplace.
At First Consulting, we don’t have a permanent office but work mainly onsite with the client or at temporary workspaces. We maintain a strong bond as a group by making it a priority for the company. The whole company, both the UK and the Netherlands, comes together at least six times a year. We run social events, including an annual ski trip and Christmas and Summer parties, and discuss our progress as a company. Everyone at First Consulting is a business consultant – supporting services such as recruitment, training, and marketing are all done by members of the consulting workstream. We believe that this too promotes interaction and connection between employees across First Consulting and helps drive our close-knit, people-orientated culture.
