“The analytical thinking and consulting skills I gained at Eden McCallum have enabled me to quickly grasp, structure and visualise the essence of challenging problems. Questioning the underlying needs of clients has become second nature and helps me to scope projects effectively.”
Renske Kroeze, Eden McCallum Analyst
Our analysts are employed full time, based out of our London or Amsterdam offices. A unique development opportunity in consulting, the analyst role at Eden McCallum provides apprenticeship and support from the very best independent consultants, the opportunity to learn from their deep and varied experience across consulting and industry. It also offers the opportunity for significant collaboration with clients, while playing a meaningful role in a leading and innovative consulting firm.
You will work closely with our independent consultants, whose backgrounds bring together the top traditional strategy firms (such as McKinsey, Bain and BCG), and track records in industry. You will be exposed to a variety of industry sectors and functions, gaining a broad insight into the key strategic issues that leading companies are facing. In addition, you will work with partners and senior Eden McCallum staff to support our business development efforts, as we seek to grow our business and increase our international footprint.
Our structured training programme will equip you with a ‘toolkit’ that enables you to rapidly add value to our clients from the very start. This begins with a three-week induction in London, including project shadowing and formal training delivered by external and internal trainers and facilitators. The initial training focuses on problem solving, communication skills and delivering for personal impact, among other core competencies. Subsequent regular training sessions cover topics such as excel modelling, financial accounting, presentation skills, problem solving and developing your interpersonal skills. All sessions will focus on developing you as a consultant in addition to promoting your personal development.
You will be expected to travel as required for periods when working on client engagements. Working in small teams, you will be given responsibility for delivering elements of our client and internal projects, as well as being expected to contribute to the wider problem solving effort. Key tasks will include:
A key element of the analyst role is coaching and on-the-job development, both on internal assignments and client-based projects. You will receive regular informal and formal feedback and coaching throughout and at the end of each project and assignment. In addition, you will be assigned a mentor who will oversee your development throughout your career with us.
You will have the opportunity to participate in Eden McCallum’s pro bono work, which enables you to use your business skills in a different environment and for social rather than commercial impact. Read more about this initiative and a recent project here.
You will have the opportunity to stretch yourself, develop a strong business grounding, and build your professional skills – all the while, in a fast-paced commercial environment. We will equip you with the tools and skills required to be a successful strategy consultant and to set you up for success (whatever career path you are aiming for in the long-term), including:
After an initial 2 years, the strongest performers are promoted to Associate Consultant. In each role, you are encouraged to stretch yourself, taking on greater responsibility for client relationships, managing others, leading components of projects and further broadening and deepening your consulting ‘toolkit’. Your time with us will help you identify and better understand the industries and functions that you’re excited about pursuing more deeply. Your mentor, and the wider group of partners and staff, will help you grow and will support you in planning and transitioning to your next career opportunity. Recent leavers have had the opportunity to join specialist consultancies, strategy departments within industry, start-ups and private equity firms.
