Consultants

What we offer

Join us as a Consultant for more than the chance to challenge conventional thinking and deliver exceptional results that have a lasting impact on businesses, governments and communities worldwide. You’ll also enjoy cutting edge learning and development, a transparent, structured career path, and the opportunity to work on exciting projects with a range of fascinating clients. 

A different way of working

We believe that working with agility and flexibility, and encouraging constant collaboration, is the key to delivering excellence for our clients. It’s this approach that makes PA such a unique place to be. 

Together, we believe that the sharing of knowledge is the catalyst for new ideas. And it's an approach that has given us the edge in the consulting industry for over 70 years.

Since joining PA, I have been very impressed by the amount of interaction you’re able to get with senior consultants such as Partners and Managing Consultants, both on client assignments and internal projects. There’s a feeling that you’re all in it together so everyone is always happy to get involved.
