In doing so, we help our clients navigate change driven by underlying advances in technology, market structure and consumer behaviour.

About the role:

We are currently looking for exceptional candidates to join our Communications practice to support our continuing growth. Applicants are required to have experience in the telecoms and media sectors which could be in a consultancy, regulator or an operator. Regulation and / or competition experience is desirable; however we will also consider applications from those who have gained broader experience in the sector.

You will be able to communicate complex economic arguments in non-technical language, and to build effective working relationships with clients and colleagues. Experience with cost / financial models in the telecoms sector and / or spectrum auctions would also be desirable though not essential.

We offer consultants unparalleled opportunities to develop, learning to manage projects and colleagues as well as building relationships with clients. You’ll be mentored and offered the opportunity to work closely with some of the brightest minds in the business.
