I have an Audit background but I want to work in Management Consulting

Hi there !

Before resigning in July 05, I worked for PwC as an Manager in the Systems and Process Audit group which is part of their Assurance practice. I joined PwC as a graduate (MEng. Mechanical Engineering with Manufacturing and Management) in September 2000 and my job involved leading teams in assessing financial and operational business processes, risks, controls and IT environments and providing recommendations on areas where improvements could be made. My work predominantly focused on supporting the year end financial statement audit however, I also delivered and worked on a number of pure consulting engagements that included business process re-engineering, software selection and project assurance engagements to name but a few.

I was responsible for a number of Blue Chip clients and have considerable experience working with and delivering recommendations to key client representatives such as FDs, MDs and IT Directors. My last two years were spent working for the PwC Melbourne practice, so I have international work experience as well.

I have now returned to the UK and am looking to move into the Management Consulting Arena as the Assurance/Audit based consulting field no longer interests me. I am particularly keen on working in the areas of Strategic/Operational consulting or Training and Development. I want to work in an environment where there is a strong focus on designing and implementing solutions and achieving results - unlike my previous job where due to client independence issues and industry regulation I was heavily restricted from designing, building and implementing solutions.

With the skills and experience I have, does anyone have any advice or tips on how to make a successful transition to Management Consulting or know of any opportunities that I may be suited to? I am particularly interested in working for a top 5 MC firm and am keen to know whether my current skills and background will allow for this.

Love to hear what is out there and any advice you may have.

Regards,

J

J,

I think that most of the firms have a division what you would fit easily into - at Accenture it's call Finance and Performance Management. It's focussed on the CFO, and designing and implementing finance/performance management systems is a significant part of the job. We are certainly recruiting alot of people into this area right now (and specifically look for people with audit backgrounds), and I know that other firms like E&Y and Deloitte are recruiting in this area too.

Good luck in your search!

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely be doing some more research along this avenue.
