To begin with, it’s worth exploring what Consultancy means to us: a permanent career move into a client facing position where you are directly employed by one of the big four or a smaller, more specialist boutique.
Moving from industry to consultancy is not an easy decision to make and the starting point must always be a consideration of your personal circumstance and long term career aspirations. Consultancy opportunities can undoubtedly act as a vessel to fast track your career however, if work / life balance is high on your agenda it may not be the path for you.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
