MC from a headhunter/sales background

Hello,

New to this forum.

I'm currently working as an IT recruitment consultant, and have been for about 2 years, as well as some other professional, mostly B2B sales.

I also have a BSc Economics degree.

I've reached a point where I'm ready to try soming else, and management consultancy is one option that has popped up.

Why management consultancy? My current job is basically sales, and while I wouldn't pretend to "have it cracked" I believe I've gone as far as I can with this career path. The next step is either building a team in recruitment (which will mean changing jobs again as my current company is too small) starting my own company (not where I am at personally at this point in time) or carrying on chasing more and more sales (ie not progressing/developing myself at all except for incrementally becoming a better recrtuiment consultant.

I'm looking for something with more intellectual depth and a stronger focus on actually doing stuff than recruitment offers. I believe my experience could be valuable in the sense that I have worked with a broad range of client companies and seen the strategies that work and the ones that don't, especially as relates to recruitment and retention of professional staff, but often in the broader sense as well. I would like to develop this into more tangible value than simply observation.

So first of all, are these something like the right reasons for moving into management consultancy?

And secondly, what route into management consultancy would be best from this starting point? Any ideas as to which companies, if any, are most likely to place value on this experience? Anyone else come in from a similar background, and what are your experiences good and bad, of making the switch?

Last but not least, what is a realistic salary expectation for someone moving into MC from this background, and how do bonuses etc typically work?
