This thread will provide a wealth of information about careers at Knox D'Arcy Ltd and Knox D'Arcy consulting jobs to candidates looking for a new consultancy position.
In producing the recently published Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms (see: http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx), we have amassed company profiles for 189 consulting employers. As many of the discussions started on the forum revolve around what it is like to work at different firms, we thought we'd create anchor threads for the firms we have profiles for, to create a place where readers can share additional information about consulting jobs and careers at each of these firms - in this case Knox D'Arcy careers.
Below is copied the profile information about Knox D'Arcy Ltd. If you know of other sources of information about careers at Knox D'Arcy, or can provide your own insights of working or interviewing there, or can add anything else constructive for people searching the site for information about them - please reply to this thread and add your input. We'll roll this out to lots of consulting employers over the coming weeks and hopefully can create a great repository of information about consulting employers like Knox D'Arcy Ltd.

1. Name of consulting firm
Knox D’Arcy Ltd
2. About our company
Knox D’Arcy is a UK-based international consultancy that specialises in helping its clients achieve significant bottom-line financial improvements in performance by implementing operational change. Established in 1986, we have grown mainly by referrals and recommendations and now undertake work in North and South America, Southern Africa as well as in the UK and Europe. We recognise that our greatest strength is the quality of our people and operate solely through employees as opposed to sub contractors in order to attract and develop the best people.
3. Types of clients we serve
The majority of our clients are large private sector organisations although there is an increasing level of public sector work. Knox D’Arcy consciously does not limit itself to any one industry or sector nor to any one particular specialism. Our ‘product’ is a quantified improvement in profit and therefore our programmes cover many areas depending upon the nature of the industry and the clients’ requirements; this includes sales, procurement, labour productivity, plant utilisation, inventory, organisation & overhead structure and site rationalisation.
4. Types of recruitment we are most likely to be undertaking in the next 18 months
Milkround recruiting (i.e. university finalists)
Experienced hire recruiting
5. When candidates choose to join our firm it is usually because
Firstly, they are attracted by the opportunity to be genuinely hands-on in the implementation of major change programmes as opposed to strategy or advisory consulting which is one step removed from the end result. Secondly, the great diversity of programme types which we afford our consultants means that everyone gets exposure across the sectors. As well as keeping things interesting, this also prevents stagnation and leads to the use of best practice from across differing industries. Finally, our consultants enjoy the challenge of working in a very entrepreneurial environment where they are encouraged to never accept that change cannot be successfully delivered.
6. Locations of our UK office(s)
We are internationally headquartered in the Isle of Man. Employees are based all around the UK and their primary place of work is their client’s premises.
