My background is technical in nature mainly in the SME networking arena. With over 12 years experience, (6 as an employee / 6 as a contractor) I am about to complete a full time MBA. Having also a technically focused MSc I don’t wont to return to the roles I left but I would like to enter the consulting sector as it offers more scope. At 30 years of age I appreciate the fact that I am starting a little late but feel with 12 years “real world” experience puts me in a good position. When working as a contractor my IT work frequently overlapped into BPR and change management type activities.
So my question is with all the “doom and gloom” I read about the consulting sector at the moment does it hold much future for somebody in my position? I have always worked hard but I am concerned about spending the next couple of years working like a “mad man” only to get made redundant in the next round of “lay offs”. If anybody can shed any light on typical UK salaries for somebody at my level I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance,
