More Information

As a Consultant you will bring incisive thinking and analytical skills to a range of strategic projects.  Working as a member of a project team, you will help to crack some of the most important problems facing our clients, and you will rapidly have exposure to their senior management teams.  Our focus on strategy means that projects tend to be shorter (typically 3-8 weeks) than in other consultancies, and involve more time based in our offices than traveling.

  • Higher pure strategy focus

We are looking for candidates with strong skills in several areas:

1. Problem solving: using analytical, quantitative, and creative approaches.

2. Written communication: creating clear and concise written documents and visual output

3. Personal impact and oral communication: presenting work clearly and confidently in both internal sessions and client meetings.

4. Team work: participating in teams in a collegial and collaborative manner; carrying out fair share of work; consistently add creative, insightful ideas; leading and motivating others well.

5. Client relationships & professionalism: conducting oneself in a professional manner at all times and contributing to clients' positive view of the project team and OC&C in general.

6. Firm contribution: playing an enthusiastic role in enhancing the Firm's earned reputation for high-caliber client work and in establishing the personality of the Firm and the Office.

About The Company

You may well not have heard of OC&C – yet! We are a 600-person boutique strategy consultancy with 12 offices around the world. We specialize in Retail, Leisure, Consumer Goods, Media & Technology, B2B Products & Services and Private Equity. OC&C has more than 35 years’ experience unpicking the most complex and interesting questions facing businesses, with what we call ‘uncommon sense’.

OC&C has many things in common with the larger strategy consultancies – exceptional people, offices around the world and great opportunities for training and career progression. But we are different in a few ways that may be attractive to you as you consider your career options:

  • Focus on a few exciting sectors: Consumer Goods & Luxury, Retail, Hospitality, Business Services, Media and Technology (no big FS, no government, no pharma…)
  • Highest share of true strategy work among top-tier consultancies (most of whom are increasingly focused on implementation)
  • Typically smaller project teams, so you’re immediately involved in the whole project
  • A more home office-based model, with less traveling to client site and less 'living out of a suitcase'
  • An opportunity to drive the firm’s future in the US: we have grown the US business to over 100 employees in just a few short years, and we have ambitious plans for continued growth in both New York and Boston (and beyond!)
  • Distinctive and entrepreneurial culture - but you can judge that for yourselves when you meet us!
