Full time, salary dependent on experience

A creatively minded Business Consultant, who has a willingness to learn and a desire to leave the world a better place is needed to join our specialist consultancy that leverages the power of visual aids to help people understand anything that’s big, complex, ambiguous or difficult. Working alongside a talented team of Illustrators, Software Developers, and other Consultants you will have a key hand in producing easy to understand, bite sized visuals that help clients see their systematic problems and how they can change them.
One on our current consultants has put together this awesome video of what we do, why we think it could change the world, and the kind of people we’re looking for to come join us on the journey:
It is not expected that you will have experience in all areas of the role, what is KEY is your raw intelligence, excellent analytical skills, an ability to hold and make sense of a high volume of complex or ambiguous concepts. You will also be curious, open, and have outstanding collaborative skills and a willingness to learn and progress.
We’re an innovative consultancy combining visual and systems thinking techniques to represent change across all stages of the transformation lifecycle. Working with organisational leaders, programme directors and cross-industry groups, we make conceptual maps that give everyone a shared image of what’s going on, and where the potential problems lie.

You’ll be working with complex real-world business processes, creating visual representations to identify and map systemic patterns to bring shared meaning to clients. Whether you are gathering data, analysing internal systems / hierarchies, organising client data-gathering workshops, producing visual interactive system maps, presenting solutions to clients, or spotting new opportunities, it will be your self-starter mentality and passion to make a difference in the world that delivers outstanding results.

Please include a cover message outlining why you are interested in this role and how your experience demonstrates you’re a good fit for the role.
