What we offer

Join us as a Consultant for more than the chance to challenge conventional thinking and deliver enduring results for businesses, governments and communities worldwide. You’ll also enjoy cutting edge learning and development, a transparent career path, and the opportunity to work on varied projects with a range of 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.

Sharing knowledge is the catalyst for new ideas. And it's an approach that’s given us the edge for 75 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.
