Job Description

Bringing Ingenuity to Life

We’re an innovation and transformation consultancy that believes in the power of ingenuity to build a positive-human future in a technology-driven world. Our diverse teams of experts combine innovative thinking with breakthrough-technologies to progress further, faster.

With a global network of FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 clients, we’ll offer you unrivalled opportunities for growth and the freedom to excel. Combining strategies, technologies and innovation, we turn complexity to opportunity and deliver enduring results, enabling you to build a lasting career.



Become part of the Team

We are seeking to recruit talented professionals as we continue to help our clients deliver complex IT programmes. Based in the South West you will consult for prestigious Defence and Security sector clients, lead teams and collaborate with sector and service specialists from across PA. You will take on key roles in areas such as business analysis, solution and data architecture, systems engineering, Agile delivery and business change.

What PA offers you:
• Working with CxO level clients and making a real difference to a broad range of leading FTSE 500 companies and public sector organisations
• Practical and hands-on work; you will deliver, assure and advise, working shoulder to shoulder with our clients and their partners throughout the delivery lifecycle
• A career that develops your consulting skills through the client exposure and structured thinking that consulting brings
• A working environment where people and ideas matter; we will actively support your growth through our PA Academy
• A direct link to innovative technology consulting. We have a dedicated technology centre which is at the core of our innovation and research. We operate innovation labs where we create solutions to showcase the art of the possible and address our clients’ challenges

Job Requirements

What we’re looking for

• An ambitious consultant who has a passion for solving client problems and enjoys working in a fast paced environment
• Someone self-motivated with an unwavering sense of pride in their work, a clear record of success and a focus on achieving results
• Stakeholder management skills, including the ability to influence and persuade at all levels of staff seniority
• Ability to communicate complex business issues clearly in speech and in writing
• An appreciation of the commercial, people and organisational aspects of your work, including the whole life of a solution (business case through design and delivery into operations)
• Knowledge of the general principles of information technology such as its role in decision support, methods of data capture, storage and retrieval, transactional processing and workflow
• A deep understanding of the technologies you have worked with and an ability to dive into detail when required
• Experience of leading teams on large programmes and projects
• Ability to manage own time effectively in an environment of competing client demands and time-critical schedules, prioritising simultaneous project work and rapidly evaluating alternative action plans

About PA Consulting Group

Benefits package at PA:

ANA-PAR
- Private medical insurance
- Transport allowance
- 25 days annual leave with the opportunity to buy 5 additional days
- Company pension scheme
- Annual performance-based bonus
- Life and Income protection insurance
- Tax efficient benefits (cycle to work, give as you earn, childcare benefits)
- Voluntary benefits (Dental, critical illness, spouse/partner life assurance)

We believe that diversity makes us a stronger firm and look to employ people with different ideas, styles and skillsets. This diversity stimulates a rich, creative environment – one in which our people develop, and our clients enjoy enduring results. We’re committed to recruiting, promoting and rewarding our people solely based on their ability to contribute to PA’s goals, without regard to their sex, race, disability, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or marital status.

We welcome international applications, but we are unable to offer sponsorship for work permits, so you will need to have the full right to live and work in the UK. Unfortunately, your application will be automatically rejected if you do not have these rights.
