Join Business’ career path is built on a 5 levels Pyramid structure. Promotions are based on merit and measured against the service delivery outcome and value added to the company. Additional office activities are also taken into account, and career steps are defined according to an “up or out” system, with a dedicated fast track for Top Performers.
Partner roles are reserved to Senior managers who have built long lasting relationships with Top Management from Client companies. They are responsible for defining client’s preliminary needs and making first contact. Additionally, they contribute greatly to internal initiatives.
Senior Managers are requested to work on multiple projects simultaneously whilst doing so over two dimensions. In order to be recognised as a leader and trusted advisor they need to establish strong ties with our Clients’ Top Management and have to contribute to the strategy and development of our internal practices. Senior Managers are assessed based on relationship building development with Clients alongside training and supervision of junior colleagues.
Managers are responsible for running a Project and a Team. They play a key role in the relationship between Senior Managers/ Partners and the end Client. It is pivotal they manage daily operational tasks whilst enhancing Client relationships. They concentrate on Managing Client expectations through their communication and Project Management skills. They are responsible for delivering high quality results and ensuring the project adds tangible and sustainable value to the Client’s business.
Associates develop quantitative analysis skills and participate in the process of problem structuring. They are responsible for a Project area and making recommendations to improve the outcome. Associates will also manage junior colleagues. Their exposure to the Client will increase as their communication and problem-solving skills improve.
Business Analysts take part in Project activities working on quantitative analysis and looking for information from internal and external sources. They are, from Day 1, directly in contact with the Client and take part in meetings that allow them to enjoy full exposure to the Project. Business analysts are never left to work alone, as they will always be supervised by senior colleagues and offered a first-class training on problem structuring, communication skills and database analysis.
Interns enjoy a work experience equal to that of Business Analysts. The internship provides the acquisition of hard and soft skills necessary to deliver a tangible impact on a project.
