BLT Management Consultancy News




Dear John,
As  the UK’s Management Consultancies Association gears up for its annual Awards ceremony and dinner, a new report on the UK consulting industry from Source says the UK consulting market is one of the most attractive in the world right now.
Large organisations are at last feeling the benefit of the economic recovery, giving them the confidence to start spending on strategic initiatives and projects that have been on hold for some time. For the consulting firms themselves, demand for work in digital, analytics, and data is a significant new area of business.
The UK consulting market recorded strong growth in 2014, rising an impressive 6.6 per cent to £6.02bn. And Source expects the good times to keep rolling in the UK market, particularly as 60 per cent of clients say their consulting spend will increase over the next 18 months.
The optimism is reflected in the increase in consultancy career opportunities we are handling…. 
  • Make your mark at this brand strategy consultancy – this boutique consultancy specialising in brand and marketing strategy for clients across the private and public sectors is looking for experienced strategy consultants to come and help drive the business into exciting new areas.
