Our client, a leading tier one level Strategy Consultancy in the UK/ Europe, is now aggressively developing their US proposition in Manhattan and to aid this The Barton Partnership have been mandated to source a Strategy Consultant to join the business to play an essential role in realizing their growth aspirations – to follow are some key points of reference to note:

  • 40% of their client base is within Private Equity businesses and their respective portfolios.
  • Compared to the likes of McKinsey, Bain, and BCG, the business is much less complex resulting in short-mid length, more agile, engagements as opposed to the longer operational/transformation and cost-cutting projects which these consulting firms are gravitating towards.
