in our talent pool

Independent consulting with Eden McCallum combines the choice, flexibility and control you get as a freelancer with the best aspects of traditional consulting: excellent and challenging work, for leading clients and working with outstanding colleagues.

We are constantly building our group of high-calibre independent consultants, at all levels from analyst through to partner.  Our independent consultants have worked in every region of the world and between them speak 57 languages.  The majority of our work is within Europe, although we also work in other locations – and we are particularly keen to hear from consultants with track records in our core markets of the UK, Benelux and DACH.

Not only do our consultants have backgrounds with the top traditional consulting firms, many also bring line role experience with major corporates and/or working in, or founding start-ups.  This variety ensures that our consultants bring not only the highest rigour from consulting, but also high levels of commercial reality, pragmatism and empathy.

We set the bar higher than traditional consulting firms. Our selection process is simple, but the vetting is rigorous. Clients are impressed by the skills, experience, and raw smarts of Eden McCallum’s independent consultants – and their values, personality and commitment as well.  Working with us as an independent consultant requires not only strong consulting skills but also the ability to connect with clients as individuals and adapt one’s working style to their organisation.

Our criteria for selection into our talent pool includes:

  • A minimum of 2-3 years’ experience, ideally within the last 5 years, with one of the top ‘traditional’ consulting firms, particularly McKinsey, Bain and BCG, though we are also happy to hear from consultants with experience at other leading strategy houses
  • Strong track-record of success, particularly within our core markets of the UK, Benelux and DACH
  • Ideally line experience within industry and/or start-up’s
