We have a structured professional development programme designed to give you the skills you need to progress your career.
Self development budget
You will be allocated an annual Self Development Budget that can be used to attend seminars, lectures, and conferences, take part in online training courses or buy books and subscriptions. Previous uses have included attending TEDx events, courses at the School of Life and subscriptions to The Economist and The Financial Times. If you feel it will make you a better consultant, we want you to do it.
Our Consulting Skills seminars focus on developing the “softer” skills that are essential for consultants. Previous sessions have included “Personal Impact,” “The Secret of Influence” and “How to be happy.” Presenters include psychologists, veteran consultants, entrepreneurs, some of our junior consultants and professional actors.
Our ‘In-House’ Personal Development Programme will provide you with carefully selected learning opportunities and support which are designed to address your personal development aspirations. This might include ‘on-the-job’ training, mentoring and coaching sessions, or personally designed learning activities for a particular skill.
Our senior management consultants are experienced leaders who will give you every opportunity to ‘step up’ and ‘dive in at the deep end’ when the time is right for you.
As a consultant your training needs will be varied, and individual. We understand that as part of your development goals, you may wish to become a subject matter expert and therefore we encourage you to undertake individual specialist training.
Our selection process
Our selection process is made up of three stages and uses a combination of interviews, a presentation and a case study analysis to assess your capabilities and experience. Whenever possible, our successful applicants get the opportunity to meet their new colleagues at one of our regular socials, prior to joining so on day one, they’ll be seeing lots of friendly faces rather than meeting everyone for the first time.
The first round is a ‘cultural fit’ interview. It’s designed to help us understand a bit more about you, but also to give you the opportunity to see you would fit into our organisation. It will be with a member of our Talent team.
Duration: 45-minute interview
The second round is with one of our senior consultants and will be focused on your experience and competencies. You will asked to do a case study and present your solution. You can be sure it will be challenging!
Duration: One-hour interview plus 45-minute case study.
The third round is an opportunity to meet with the founder and Managing Director of SKT Consulting. He will walk you through his vision and goals for the company and discuss the opportunity with you in more detail. We are confident you will enjoy the experience!
How to Apply
We are always looking for talented people to join our team. If you have previously done great work as a management consultant (any industry) or blazed a trail within financial services, we’d love to hear from you.
If we like what we see, we will be in touch. We regret to say that, whilst we’d like to, we cannot respond to all applications due to the volume we receive.
