Read on to find out what benefits there are to working with =mc.

Your base starting salary as a learning and development consultant, fundraising consultant or management consultant will depend on experience. See specific jobs for more detail.
We encourage outputs and success at =mc and we’re keen to reward them. We believe in sharing the fruits of our success. Your base salary will be reviewed every year in September after one year in post. Finally we have an annual performance-related profit share, again based upon your contribution.

After the initial period of intensive training and coaching, you’ll be assigned to a number of customers and projects.
|As a learning and development consultant you’ll deliver our standard training programmes and work on tailored in-house initiatives. Within six months, we’d expect you to be fully up and running and delivering core programmes on Project Management, Management Development and Personal Effectiveness programmes, whether with local authorities, international development agencies or small arts organisations.|
|As a management or fundraising consultant you’ll be allocated customers and projects initially and, depending on the nature of the assignment, you’ll be asked to work alongside a colleague or progress a less complex project yourself. These projects might involve a performance audit, a feasibility study or a strategic plan.|
|A highlight of the =mc year is the annual staff summer school. Here everyone goes away for three days to share ideas on the new business and marketing plans, relax, learn new techniques collectively and share ideas. We are usually joined by one of our key customers to give a presentation on the work of their organisation.|
