"I get lots of creative freedom and chances to meet clients. Things are very different from day to day."
Graduate, London
"I've been very lucky to have been assigned to great opportunities. I have supported negotiations worth over £2 billion by working closely with the commercial team. I have also project managed videos to support bid pitches and researched defence and security opportunities in South-East Asia."
Graduate, London
"You might be helping to prepare a partner for an important client meeting or helping to write a proposal to win the firm a project. The variety of clients and types of assignments means the work is always different."
Graduate, London
"Really interesting projects. At the moment, I'm running workshops with client stakeholders and helping them to design their future services. It's really rewarding knowing that my work is contributing towards positive change. When you're off-the-clock, internal work can sometimes be a little dull."
Graduate, London
"The work is incredibly varied so your satisfaction largely depends on the work at hand. When you are on a project, a typical week can switch from completing boring analysis one day, to preparing an interesting client deliverable the next. When you are not on a project, internal work is usually not quite as interesting. The benefit of varied work means that you are constantly learning and rarely complacent, which is one of the best aspects of the job. It also means that you can discover what you enjoy and then actively seek out this kind of work."
Graduate, London
"As a consultant, you are assigned to projects that can be short or long term and for a range of clients. I am aligned to the people and talent service line and could get projects in all sectors the company acts in. At the moment I am with a client in government and work as a business change manager within project delivery. We are working in a very interdisciplinary team of consultants and other suppliers but I make sure I stay in contact with the team at our offices as well."
Entry level, London
"I have already spent time with two major companies working with both client teams and PA teams. Day to day, I can be producing reports, documentation, or attending workshops – my role is really varied."
Graduate, London


"I have a consultant role, so my work changes from day-to-day. For instance, I may be designing training and working with the client in question to ensure they are happy with the work."
Midlevel, London
"My role and day-to-day work are completely varied; depending on the project."
Graduate, London
"I thoroughly enjoy my day-to-day role which mostly involves facilitating workshops for practitioners."
Entry level, Leicester
"I work between the business and the IT group, to make sure that both teams understand what the other wants/needs. Recently, I've created processes to describe a future IT system."
Graduate, Cambridge/Melbourn
