Professional Services Team Graduate

Job Description

Your challenge

Our people make the difference to defence and security organisations. Unconstrained by conventional thinking, they deliver results that have a lasting impact. That’s something you will discover for yourself while working for PA’s Professional Services Team. Expect to take responsibility working alongside our clients, using your insight, intellect and interpersonal skills as part of a team solving some of the most complex and exciting challenges.

Professional Services Team at PA Consulting

The Professional Services Team focuses on Defence & Security. Typically, the roles we provide will be for months or years with a client. Our team tends to work close to home, not subject to the normal mobility requirements of consulting. We deliver excellence in areas such as: project management; project controls - planning, risk and cost engineering; business case development and approvals management; and requirements engineering. We have people who are deep experts and those learning to become the experts of the future. Most importantly, we support each other and work with our clients to enable them to succeed.

Your role in the Professional Services Team

From the initial support to get you started, and the training and development to help you to progress on your career path, your journey with PA could take you anywhere. You will work with colleagues who have done amazing things, and who will encourage and help you. You will be an organised person, who thrives on taking real responsibility, most often as part of small team of specialists. You will need to be numerate, and some of our team need to be good with attention to detail. You will need the interpersonal skills to help you to work with people from a range of disciplines as well as colleagues and clients at every level. And you will need to quickly engender confidence and earn trust.

Job Requirements

What you’ll bring to the Professional Services Team:

  • Degree educated in a relevant subject e.g. Engineering, Project Management, Business Management that demonstrates numeracy and an attention to detail;
  • Willing to learn and an ability to apply that learning;
  • A keen interest in working in the defence & security sector; 
  • An effective communicator and team player, able to lead when the need arises;
  • Creative problem-solving skills and the confidence to challenge others;
  • Eligibility and willingness to gain relevant UK security clearances.

Roles will start from September 2019.

We believe that diversity makes us a stronger firm and look to employ people with different ideas, styles and skillsets. This diversity stimulates a rich, creative environment – one in which our people develop, and our clients enjoy enduring results. We’re committed to recruiting, promoting and rewarding our people solely based on their ability to contribute to PA’s goals, without regard to their sex, race, disability, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or marital status.

We welcome international applications, but we are unable to offer sponsorship for work permits, so you will need to have the full right to live and work in the UK. Unfortunately, your application will be automatically rejected if you do not have these rights.
