Defence and Security Analyst

Your challenge

Our people make the difference in defence and security. Unconstrained by conventional thinking, they deliver results that have a lasting impact. That’s something you’ll discover for yourself as a Defence & Security Analyst. Taking responsibility from day one, you’ll work across every stage of a project. You’ll create, define and deliver solutions and services like nothing else out there. And you’ll do it for clients delivering some of the most advanced technology in the world.

Defence & Security at PA Consulting Group

Programmes of work don’t come more complex or technically challenging than this. In an environment where invention and evolution are constants, transformation is crucial. Which is why our Defence & Security team work with many of the most influential Defence & Security organisations in the public and private sector to drive flexibility, adaptability and efficiency. From strategies that put our clients in prime position to deliver, to projects that ensure smart spending and improve operational performance, the difference we make is immense.

Your role in Defence & Security

Because you’ll be a full member of the team from your first day, you’ll make a difference fast. With real responsibility on real projects, you’ll deliver as part of a highly innovative team. It means working with people from a range of disciplines as well as colleagues and clients at every level. 

You’ll join a sector-specific team, which means the majority of your work may be focused in one area. However, because we expect our consultants to be able to work across other sectors, we’ll try to broaden your experience with assignments in different service lines. Do well and you’ll develop your skills, expand your knowledge and progress faster than you thought possible.

This role starts in September 2017, although there may also be some opportunities to start in March 2017.

What you'll bring to Defence & Security:

  • A 2:1 degree, or equivalent 
  • A proven ability to excel and support others to do the same
  • Initiative, ambition and curiosity, including examples of proactive problem solving
  • Strong team and interpersonal skills
  • Either experience in Defence & Security, or a genuine interest
  • A willingness to travel on business.

Due to the confidential nature of the role, it is essential for you to have an existing unconditional right to live and work in the UK. Please note that a willingness to obtain SC Clearance is required for these roles. Also, some assignments will require sole British National status.
