I have been offered an interview by a recuritment consultant for a C1 (junior consultant) level role at BCS Consulting.

I didnt even know the company existed until this offer came up.

I am a A2 with 19months exp. at Accenture and COULD get promoted this september to C1.

Views?

Don't know a great deal about them, what is it your trying to get views on? Promotion prospects? The company? The people in it?

Small firm - some good people. Very hard to say, but if I was you I'd got o the interviews, get the job offer and use it to MAKE SURE you get C1 at Acn THIS YEAR.

Unless you hate ACN it doesn't really make sense to leave at such an early stage just to get a the word consultant in your job title.

I tend to find that all of the candidates that don't make it through the interview process at my decent clients all end up joining there.

Not saying it's a bad place as I know a few good consultants there but they might not be as high calibre as other leading boutiques out there!

If you like the idea of working for a smaller firm get in touch as I can give you some good insights.

Out of interest... What constitutes a 'decent client'?

1. Pays above market rate

2. Flexibility around work / life balance (ie. little or no travel)

3. Top calibre employees

4. High growth therefore speeding up progression

5. Good culture (ski holidays, other nice employee perks)

All of the above.

4. High growth therefore speeding up progression

5. Good culture (ski holidays, other nice employee perks)

All of the above.

1. BCS pays above Big4, ACN etc, base and bonus

2. Little or no travel, unless requested by project (usually for a week or two). Examples of places been: Rio, New York, Hong Kong - no long stints in Manchester / York etc

3. Most employees come from Big4, ACN, IB etc and must pass a 4/5 stage recruitment process

4. Substantial revenue growth and headcount growth year on year

5. Annual away day, regular socials, BUPA (family care), dental care, 25/26 days holiday plus option to buy another 5

Recently advised by a pseudo-insider that they had stagnated for a while, but had some new blood in the management who are focussing on proper growth.

Not sure that would work at ACN - without sounding like I'm toeing the company line promotions would never be based on if someone has an offer to go elsewhere.

First round interviews with BCS are not taxing, they are to see if you are a 'cultural fit' as the interviewers are in the administration team and have no Consulting experience.
