Associate Accreditation

    Associate Accreditation

    Home > About Us > Associate Accreditation

    Knowledge and expertise are the lifeblood of our company, and as such we take great care to recruit and retain the very best consultants; in so doing, we bring our clients the highest quality thought, knowledge and insight.

    Formal accreditation is an intrinsic element of our recruitment and retention process; we implement an assessment process twice a year, evaluating new candidates objectively using a bespoke programme. We accredit only those consultants with:

    • A good cultural, ethical and values fit with our organisation (see our Code Of Conduct);
    • The right skills, knowledge and experience to best service our clients, in terms of background and learning, sector, function, and seniority;
    • And the motivation to help our clients create and sustain meaningful change in their organisations.

    Once accredited, our consultants are quickly immersed in our company culture, and get the opportunity to work alongside our most senior people. This approach brings them swiftly up to speed and allows us to offer clients the benefit of added breadth of experience without delay.

    By thoroughly and systematically assessing our people at the outset, we can be confident that we continue to meet the needs of our clients. This process of formally reviewing skills, fit, and experience continues; all consultants receive an annual appraisal as part of their ongoing development.

    We are proud of our people, and believe our attention to finding and keeping high calibre associates helps to set sets us apart from other management consultancies. Indeed, the calibre of associate consultant with whom we’ve worked over the last few years has helped us achieve notable success. That success comes in various forms:

    • The quality and diversity of work we do
    • Client confidence
    • A reputation for providing good return on investment 
    • A reputation for adding real value in the thought, knowledge and insight we offer our customers

    We remain true to the very values and business approach that have helped get us here; one of the values closest to our heart is the opportunity to work with professional colleagues with similar aspirations and knowledge.
