Opportunity

Our client's "Labs" is an exciting new global practice, creating and delivering world-class applications to our clients that drive sustained business impact. Consultants are at the core of the business – creating the initial sales and proposal processes, delivering high-quality technical work and ensuring that the value delivered for clients is sustainable. Consultants will achieve this through collaboration with the rest of global Labs practices, including Data Engineering, Development, Platform, Analytics and Support as appropriate.

This individual will be engaged throughout the client lifecycle from sales meetings and exploratory diagnostics to developing sustainable custom software tools or implementing proven solutions. They will need to make tough tradeoffs between demonstrating rapid value to the client and ensuring the sustainability of the end product. They will be involved in establishing technical interfaces with client systems and IT, carrying out or optimizing complex analyses, and ensuring that the tools and systems our client build for their clients have “magnetic” adoption.

The Labs team is entering a period of rapid growth and expansion as they aim to make these game-changing capabilities accessible to all of the consultancy's clients. As part of this developing team, you will have a chance to shape your role & the team’s future.
