salary & rewards

=mc aims to reward consultants with the best salaries in the sector. These are not the same as you might gain in the commercial field, but can be considerable.

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.

=mc currently has no contributory pension scheme but does have a stakeholder pension scheme.

You can opt to work full or part-time. Your holiday allowance is 25 days plus public holidays (pro-rata for part-time employees).

Your Development

In coming to work at =mc as a consultant you’ll be joining an expanding, socially committed business. You’ll have opportunities for significant career development, building on your current skills through a range of projects. We can offer you:

  • A full or part time role in one of our teams: management consultancy, learning and development or fundraising consultancy
  • The chance to work with some of the most exciting and challenging organisations in the UK – NSPCC, Macmillan Cancer Support, the National Trust for Scotland, The Cabinet Office, and the BBC
  • Opportunities to engage with high profile international charities such as The Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, CARE International, UNHCR and Greenpeace.
  • An intensive in-house development programme to improve your skills and knowledge across all our core disciplines
  • A competitive salary with access to =mc’s profit-share scheme for on-target consultants

=mc prides itself on its integrated approach to work. So your initial period with us will involve learning our shared consultancy approaches and core learning technologies.

  • As a learning and development consultant this will mean acquiring and being able to deliver several core =mc programmes – in leadership, personal effectiveness, communications etc. – as well as training in presentation skills
  • As a management or fundraising consultant this will involve taking part in our intensive consultancy skills, communications or presentations programmes as well as focusing on an area like strategy or major donors

Outstanding consultants will have opportunities to develop and become:

  • senior or principal consultants, responsible for managing specific projects or a team of consultants
  • engaged in business planning processes and have a real impact on the future direction and success of =mc
  • involved in training and consultancy internationally and liaise with our overseas network of partner businesses

There is no one path that is exactly the same for every person who joins =mc. You’ll be offered as much responsibility as and when you want and can manage. And your development programme will be tailored to your needs. But you can expect a pattern like the table below:

=mc Consultancy Skills Programme: our management and fundraising consultants all take part in our consultancy skills programme. Click here for more details.

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.
