Does anyone have any info on:

-The level (ref. mature) of Management consulting and/or consulting market in general in Shanghai?

-The consulting labour market in Shanghai and HK?

-Using recruitment agencies vs directly to company in China?

-Start application process from home in Norway vs move to China first and then start process?

Cheers,

Richard

Richard,

I am going through the same process - have previously worked out in Beijing in consultancy. To be honest the best tactic is to research particular projects the multi-nationals are undertaking and approach their senior management with a value proposition. I have skipped the whole Big 5 etc. scene and although registered with the major executive search companies am not holding my breath. I would suggest contacting them first and letting them know you're prepared to pop over for a discussion during a finite window.

In this day and age it's probably also worth letting them know you're prepared to independently relocate - that could make the difference between a yes and a no.

If you want any more info feel free to drop me a line: dxthasar@hotmail.com

Hi, Richard

You are a lucky guy--I've been working in Shanghai as a Senior consultant for years after graduated from Southampton Institute, England.

Regarding your questions,

1) The consulting market is quite price&relationship-driven. In shanghai, I was told there are more than 1000 consulting companies, which are divided into 5 areas. They are ISO quality approvement consulting company, Training company (such as GE team building etc), Market information providers, and normal Management consulting company.

The salary of management consulants here varies...Graduates 150-250 pounds, senior lever (300-1000 pounds), partners/or called associates (business developer- based on commission&company shares)

-40000pounds, you can register one Consulting company here.

-the top offices are everywhere and rent is about 0.8 british pounds per square meter per day.

-In terms of entry strategy, my suggestion is to visit china first then find one partner company. After 6-12 months' corporation and having gained enough knowledge of the local market you can start to set up a company straight away.

-Question is...what is your background and business focus?

and do you have any current clients who is about to (or already have) expand in China market?

In your mind, the clients come from where? your homecountry or local?

I would like to give you a hand...

Sean
