This will include top pre-university grades (A*/A at A-level including maths (and ideally physics or further maths)); and a 1st / high 2.1 class degree in a highly numerate subject from a top-ranking university.
  • Demonstrable analytical experience – this could be through an extended university project (Masters) or completed through an internship. Use of advanced Excel for numerical modelling would be highly beneficial.

Joining this consultancy, you can expect to travel with the team (including Europe, South America, Africa, Asia or Oceania), and this can be for days or weeks at a time. Further, because of the where projects could be, additional modern language fluency would be desirable.
