Careers FAQs

What can I expect from my career at =mc?

In a nutshell, we can offer the opportunity to deliver training to and work with some of the most exciting and challenging organisations involved in social good in the UK and worldwide. Internationally, we work with agencies like Plan, CARE, World Food Programme and UNICEF International. In the UK we’re proud to have as our customers organisations as diverse as the Royal Shakespeare Company, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. We’re delighted to help improve the work of many public bodies such as the Department for Education and Wealden District Council, and cultural organisations ranging from the Science Museum to Edinburgh Book Festival.

What is the interview process like?

Depending on the role you apply for, we will invite you to interviews, group interviews or to make presentations. The aim of the interview process is to allow you the chance to show us you at your best. We will make any reasonable adjustments that you need. We will explain the process clearly for all roles.

What initial training will I get?

We want you to bring your current skills and talents and then we want to build on these. You will be fully supported in learning your role.

What happens to people after they leave?

We’re proud to say that many of the people who’ve left =mc over the years have gone on to be outstanding successes in other careers, such as: continuing to work in organisational development for social enterprises or charities; returning to their original market sector to more senior positions; working as consultants on specialist areas such as disability support, safeguarding, conflict resolution and even creative writing!

All of them, we think we can say, have benefited hugely from the time they spent at =mc. And in addition to the value they added to =mc, their next move was also due to the skills and experience they picked up while working for us. We have also hugely benefited from working with them, and the contributions they made to our team.

What opportunities are there for promotion as a consultant?

=mc’s very much a meritocracy. As a successful consultant, if you want to, you can expect to progress to a senior consultant role over time. This involves being responsible for coaching others, winning business, and managing major projects. There is no limit to how quickly you progress.
