  • Developing and implementing cost control programmes;

  • Strategic planning with business case and scenario modelling.

Our clients are based around the UK and you will need to be willing to travel to a variety of working locations.

Skills and experience we are looking for

  • Sound analytical skills (financial and non-financial), including strong use of Microsoft Excel;

  • Report writing skills, including use of Microsoft PowerPoint;

  • Excellent verbal and written English;

  • Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable communicating at different levels;

  • Willingness to learn about and participate in marketing and business development;

  • A commitment to continued personal development;

  • Project and time management skills;

  • Ability to work to tight deadlines in a pressurised working environment;

  • Flexibility to work on diverse projects;

  • Experience of operating on cost reduction programmes in the NHS or public sector is preferred but not essential.


You’ll be joining a team who will welcome your outlook and knowledge. Our team come from a variety of backgrounds, many with hands on experience of working in the public sector including the NHS and MoD. We also recognise that this type of work is quite new for some so we support our joiners as best we can to transition successfully to working in one of the world’s leading professional services organisations.
