About Us

We’re Nine Feet Tall!

Based in Bath, we’re a management consultancy that’s helped our customers deliver over £100m of value in the past fifteen years. We specialise in delivering complex change, combining the power of people and technology.

But that only tells you a small bit about us.

Our Founder and CEO has an extensive wardrobe of hoodies. We have a branded surfboard strapped to our office wall. We name all of our internal projects after things that are orange. And we like coffee – in fact, we’ve become quite the connoisseurs of the local hot beverage scene in Bath when covid allows.

It might sound cliché, but people are our most valued asset. We like people who bring their personalities to work with them. Who make things happen. Who enjoy the benefits of working in a flexible, modern workplace. And who love contributing to positive outcomes.

It’s what our customers feel too. They get all the capabilities of a much bigger consultancy, but with far less jargon and a real understanding of how to deliver change which really sticks.

If we sound like the kind of company you’d like to work with, read on.

The Role

Our two-year 9Start development programme has been the launching-pad for so many successful careers.  It’s the perfect mix of on-the-job learning and formal training. We offer much more than accredited qualifications, though there are plenty of those to choose from. You’ll take on real client work and attend regular knowledge sharing sessions, coupled with formal training modules delivered by our team. All of this will be supported by a dedicated Mentor who’ll join you on your 9Start journey.

You will be welcomed into the 9Start programme with a clear structure and development plan, but you’re encouraged to make the experience your own and immerse yourself in projects that excite you! In your first week, you’ll pick up your first internal projects, whether it’s helping with the planning our famous company away days, taking advantage of some of the charitable work we do with Jessie May or even getting involved in marketing initiatives - there’ll be multiple ways in which you can contribute to our culture and success.  In the first month you will also begin a placement with your first client, to get a taste of consultancy work.

As a successful ‘9Starter’ you will bring a genuine thirst for knowledge across all the working opportunities and sectors we offer. It’s an environment where we look for passion and enthusiasm first.  You’ll quickly learn that making mistakes is all part of the journey and you’ll build the resilience and confidence to learn from them and constantly develop your approach.

About You

As a successful graduate you will have been flung into the working world and will have been trying to decide what it is that really makes you tick. You know what it’s like to be on the daily grind; meeting deadlines, appeasing the management team and organising yourself whilst juggling your own social life, side hustle or sports passion. You understand what it means to be flexible and deliver fantastic service to customers.

Enter Nine Feet Tall!

We’ll take all of the potential and passionately look to build on it.  We want to help you achieve all that you wish to in your career.

At this stage in your career, we can take you to the next level, introducing you to opportunities that give you the experience needed within consulting and developing other skills along the way. We benchmark ourselves against excellence and pride ourselves on developing you to be the best consultant you can be.

You’ve probably been researching consultancies and have now found our programme.  We think we can offer so much more than others you’ll have seen, and we hope you’re getting a sense of what makes Nine Feet Tall different.

Why Apply?

As a team, we value openness and give you the freedom to bring your ideas to the Nine Feet Tall. In return for your skills and enthusiasm, you’ll get to learn from Consultants with years of experience, you’ll benefit from the shared knowledge of our team and grow in a business that prides itself on being built on everyone’s ideas.

We can confidently promise that you will be swept along with the energy and enthusiasm of the team. We’re proud of the culture and energy that our business has to offer and you’ll reap the benefits of working in such a positive environment.
