Joining a pure strategy consultancy (those that do just strategy, as contrasted with the ex Big 5 that do a bit a strategy consulting and a lot of other types of consulting) is top of the list of most candidates' aspirations. Strategy firms charge the highest fees because they do the most interesting Board-level work, a benefit of which is that they can also afford to pay the most.

<br><br>

Consequently, there are often hundreds of applications from top candidates for each graduate entry-level position on offer. It is really only worth your while applying if you have a 2.1 or above from one of the top few universities in the country - which in the UK I would classify as Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Bristol, Durham & Exeter. Some of these firms will only really look outside Oxbridge if they are concerned about not meeting their recruitment targets.

<br><br>

If you fall into this category, great! The candidate report you will find on Top-Consultant's homepage gives you a breakdown of some of the leading strategy firms. If you don't, I would suggest trying to get into the strategy arms of one of the ex-Big 5 firms. They are not quite as prestigious - and therefore the entry criteria are slightly easier to meet - but when you come to make your first career move in a few years' time, you may well be able to move to one of the best strategy firms if you have some form of strategy consulting on your CV.

<br><br>

Hope that helps and best of luck, Tony

Hi Tony. Thanks a lot for your insightful advice. As it stands, I do not have an undergrad degree from a top uni.

Would you be able to advice me on some of the smaller strategy firms that operate in the Asia -Pacific sector, i.e Australia, New Zealand, Singapore etc? I am planning to target some botique strategy firms, but am stuck on which ones would be able to offer me good exposure as well as a challenging environment. Cheers.
