Flexibility for success
The main things we look for in associate and junior consultants are a drive to learn, team work, a passion to improve the effectiveness of client organizations and a commitment to accurate delivery. Flexibility is key: they should fit their behaviour to the situation or the individual they are dealing with and to take specific actions to meet the client’s needs.
We expect to see evidence of initiative and of soliciting colleagues’ help with specific issues or decisions. Associate consultants need to be able to research and work through multiple causal links and apply models and concepts accurately. They should have a confidence in their own ability and in their own limits and have the influencing skills to handle the demands of others.
