Mr V to deleted (#0)

Managed to land myself with a final interview with this firm. Although I know it focuses on advising companies to engage more profitably with their customers, I'm still unsure whether it's the right job for me, as I would prefer to work for a strategic consultancy (although I'm sure this role could prove to be a stepping stone). I did ask at the first assessment day, but their answers were very vague.

So just wondering whether anybody knows anything about this firm? Any help would be great.

Village Idiot to Mr V (#1)

Five minutes on their website and a little googling reveal that this organisation is a long, long way from strategic consulting. I suppose "engaging more profitably with their customers" sells more strongly than "helping our clients lose money" but it's a pretty generic sales message. They seem to like their consultant-speak, too. But then they work in marketing, so that's to be expected....

Oh, and from what's available on the web, they look like crap payers, too. Although slightly out of date, £21K + £1K signing bonus (2002 figures) means that a job at Tesco's is probably more lucrative.

Heck, even EY BAS pay better than that. :-)

dunnhumby's more of a marketing consultancy than a strategy consultancy - it has big ambitions to get into lots of different business areas (e.g. change management, research), and has been pretty successful so far, but it's ultimately still marketing oriented. Graduate pay would be roughly £20-25k but there is fast progression (both promotion & pay increases) for the right people. It's a fun, young company and is well recognised in marketing circles, but it's quite narrow and you might find it hard to move onto strategy houses from there if that's what you ultimately want to do.

Hmm, cheers for the replies.

I do like the fact that its a growing company (50% p.a) and it's diversifying into different industry sectors, so there will be scope to move between departments.

Im just a bit confused at the moment. I mean, i know getting into a strat house is difficult, as I've only just graduated and have limited experience. So, ideally, i'd like to find a job which will give me relevant skills & expertise for when I apply to a strat consultancy in a few years time.

It is possible to move from dunnhumby to management consultancy as I know a few who've done it, but it depends what role they're considering you for - you'll find it easier to move if you do an Analyst role, rather than any of the other graduate roles.

I apologise for bringing up an old thread, but could anybody elaborate on dunnhumby?

What are the graduate roles available?

What is the salary like?

Rate of progression?

Culture?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there. Well I managed to get through the final interview and have been working fat dunnhumby since september. They have a wide range of graduate opportunities within each of their departments. It's best if you have a look at their website to see what service line appeals to you most.

I work in FMCG Shopping Experience as an analyst. I'm in my 6th month and am currently working on my 20th project. The amount of responsibility this company gives you is unbelievable. I have friends working in other firms who started the same time as me who are still receiving training or are working on very small bespoke projects which generate little, if any income.

The starting salary for grads isn't very high. I'm on 23k (with a 2k golden hello), but to be honest this isn't the most important factor yet, as this is my first job and my main aim is to get as much experience under my belt as possible (and this is a great place to get it). Having said that, my manager is only 26 years old, and his manager is 29. When promoted, you'll also recieve a substantial payrise. Level 5s in the company are on 100k+.

Seeing as though dunnhumby is expanding worldwide, there's also, if you want, to work abroad. As for the culture, it's great. Work/life balance is spot on. I tend to get in at 9 and leave for around 6.

I hope this answers your questions. If you need to know anything else, just ask!

Thank you very much for the insight, Anon. I have an assessment centre coming up, although the date has yet to be confirmed, and you have just described exactly the sort of company I was hoping it would be!

I'm also going for the dunnhumby assesment day, although as i understand its just a 1-1 interview first. I was wondering if you could elaborate on this, from your experience last year? Also, FMCG, is that not primarily promotional work, ie flyering? Although I understand you're analysing it. Anyway, any help would be great!

Sure. My first round was a 1:1 with a client service director focusing purely on my competency skills. It lasted approx. 20 minutes, where I was asked to give examples to 5 or 6 different questions (which were very generic). Try to make your answers as concise and to-the-point as possible. A typical question is why you chose dunnhumby. Investigate what we do and how it blends with your career aspirations. Work/life balance is important at dunnhumby, so be sure to flag this up.

As you said, FMCG stands for Fast Moving Consumer Goods. This makes up one of our service lines, in which I work in. To be honest the first round interview process is more about you getting to know the business and whether you think it's right for you. Remember to take notes on the presentations given to you for references.

Hi there. The assessment day consists of a group exercise, followed by a case study, followed by an interview with 2 or 3 client service directors. Remember to do some pre-reading of the market we operate in, and how we differ from our competitors. The case study will probably be made up of a recent project of ours. It shouldn't be too difficult. Remember it's not the answer they're looking for but rather your approach and reasoning. Don't be afraid to say 'i don't know' rather than freestyle a useless answer.

Best to luck to everyone attending the assessment days.

International prospects are good in this company and you find out all you need to know on the assessment day. They'll take you through the campny's history and where it's going. Remember to ask lots of questions.

As for my role, i'm an analyst. There are so many different roles you can go into as a grad, and as mentioned all of this will be made clear on the day. It's more a case that the interviewers will assess which department or role you're most likely to fit into, and ask questions accordingly.
