Anyone seeing any anecdotal signs of an upturn in UK consulting?

Tom - mixed signals out there. The MCA's latest industry revenue and order book figures suggest we have turned the corner and are now back in a growth phase. However, because a lot of firms still have low utilisation rates they will need to win additional business before this growth actually translates into recruitment needs... for the time being modest growth can be fulfilled with existing staff. This much said, a lot of activity amongst smaller consulting firms...

I support the view that activity in the smaller consultancies is getting stronger, albeit with some pressure on fee rates of some 10-15%.

I have positive evidence of small(er) firms capturing much of the business lost by the bigger ones. At least 4 management consultancies are now hiring to resource new assignments, with similar signs in some areas of IT consulting.

A further sign of upturn is the emergence of new (!) consulting firms: and I don't mean redundant consultants starting on their own. Successful IT firms, marketing agencies and service businesses are branching into management consultancy, ignorant of all the downturn talk, but close to their client base and aware of needs they are hoping to fill. (Not least, they are also aware of disappointment within their clients from big names).

If you are visiting this site for job opportunities, look out for lesser known names: their recruitment needs are more likely to be real and immediate.

If you are a consulting firm with more projects on your hands than consultants to deliver it, eat some humble pie and check who is available among the people you made redundant not long ago ;o)
