2013

"Still early days in my career, so slowly building the level of work that I can take responsibility for. Have just started at a client site, and first time interacting with clients on a day-to-day basis. No hesitation from my Project Leader in taking me to meetings and introducing me to the various people I will be working with from the client side."
London
"Close interaction with clients, analysis of data, writing and holding presentations, conducting interviews - depending on project."
London
"Work with the Project Leader or Principal, doing some analysis, preparing client presentations attending client meetings."
London
"There is almost no such thing as a typical day. My client interaction ranges from C-suite executives in blue chip companies through performance computing academics, to some of the most senior Partners in the company. A day could involve, running interviews or workshops, data analysis, financial modelling, desktop research document presentation, training and more. I will be expected to work both highly independently and then closely with a client or consulting team variably depending on the project."
London
"Each day is different but may include client interviews, market research, producing output in Powerpoint, performing some analysis and building a model in Excel."
