Hello everyone,

I am looking to find out what ex-grads of the big strategic/management consultancy schemes are doing now.

-What approximate percentage of your year's intake left the company to do something else after completing the scheme?

-After how long did you leave?

-What are you doing now?

-Did you contact any recruitment agencies during your move from the firm to whatever you are doing now? Which ones?

-What approximate percentage of your year's intake left the company to do something else after completing the scheme?

By the time I left, probably 50% of my starting cohort remained.

-After how long did you leave?

3 years

-What are you doing now?

Managing Director of a SME

-Did you contact any recruitment agencies during your move from the firm to whatever you are doing now? Which ones?

No. A couple of agencies got my details from a former colleage and offered me all sorts of inappropriate junk. I used guardianjobs.co.uk

Thank you so much mac, this is really interesting and helpful.

So you applied for your role as MD of an SME via guardianjobs?

May I also ask, do you know of any former colleagues, or have any friends who did the same thing as you by leaving a big firm after the grad scheme? What are they doing now?

Thank you very much!

No problem

- yep

May I also ask, do you know of any former colleagues, or have any friends who did the same thing as you by leaving a big firm after the grad scheme? What are they doing now?

Of the former colleagues:

- at least 4 went into banking (but I don't know their roles)

- 1 went to a government think-tank

- 3 relocated to where they were originally from

- 2 went travelling

- 2 went to work for start-ups run by former colleagues

- a couple of others did some really specific things, but I'm not going to mention these on here - they built on existing talents.
