First, we find the brightest graduate talent for our Development Programmes, then we deploy our Project Analysts to our clients’ change and transformation programmes, all whilst fast-tracking their development through our unique proposition. With now over 400 employees, we continue to grow our successful teams.

Our Delivery Managers play a vital role in this, supporting and mentoring a team of 45-50 Project Analysts as they start their careers working with some of the UK’s leading companies.

We’re looking for an experienced coach/mentor/manager, ideally from an IT, Tech or Change background.

Alongside that, you’ll be building solid relationships with your client contacts and colleagues to ensure excellence is at the heart of everything we do.
