Sharing a list of firms that are hiring

 
#1 Sharing a list of firms that are hiring

Friends, how about sharing with one another a list of consulting firms that are hiring in different practices? It will help candidates like ourselves to focus the job search efforts better.

Based on my experience of dealing with recruitment consultants, it is quite challenging for non consultants to break into the consulting sector despite recognized qualifications and blue chip international experience. No matter what recruiters say about non consulting experience as a disqualification, many of my friends have been able to move into strategy consulting from the industry.

So, shall we start sharing with one another which firms are hiring and in which practices?

In order to start this, I would like to share that Parthenon group is hiring for their London office.

It will be great if everybody else can share too.

aspiringconsultant to Tim (#2)

Tim, in my observation recruitment consultant option works only for existing consultants and that too only when one wants to do the same job in different companies. It is a low effort, low success strategy and most of recruitment consultants out there are not professional enough to either understand client's or candidate's needs.

Also, there are some companies like mine (Fortune 500), where we prefer direct applicants as it helps us connect to them on a personal basis.

Anyway, I am not ruling the recruitment consultant option out. However, that is not the only one and hence this idea of sharing what firms are hiring in which practices so that they can be approached directly.

Thanks for your input.

Rik to aspiringconsultant (#5)

Detica have gone quiet but will probably ramp up in a few months, think a lot of areas in Deloitte consulting are hiring, E&Y i think have gone quiet, i believe some smaller companies like impower and qedis are hiring for all levels.

i agree with your point on recruitment consultants - its true of a lot of firms that they would prefer deal with candidates directly, rather than through an agency.

Why not try PA's BOP practice? They will hire anyone who fails the entry criterion for most other places, including McDonalds

Particularly if you're a cute bird, the Essex boy will find a job for you on one of his (very rare) projects

Moorhouse is a niche project and programme management company, IBM is diverse and has a lot going on but they want SAP expertise especially, PA seem to be growing Defence/Security, as are Deloitte. The Detica post is about right, if/when the sale goes thru' (couple of months?) they will need candidates to support the new geographies BAE Systems service, especially US and Australia, and to replace the staff who will move if they don't like the change...
