Every mission and every client is different, but our model of work doesn’t change. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll work with our clients to identify opportunities for operational improvement. You'll then plan and implement the changes that need to happen to solve the problem.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

Work hybrid, remote (depending on the project) or field-based, shoulder-to-shoulder with clients, transforming operations within their organisations. You'll spend time with their people – mapping processes, analysing data, and looking for opportunities to improve the way they work. Once you've determined where the biggest opportunities are, you'll knuckle down and get stuck in – creating and implementing project plans that deliver on the promises we make and continue to do so long after we've gone.

LIFE ON SITE

Where you’ll work

We work on projects across the nation - from the tip of the Cornish coast to the Scottish Highlands. This means you're free to live anywhere in the UK.

Travel

Being onsite with the client is a big part of being a consultant so during the week, you’ll be put up in a hotel, near the client-site, paid for by Newton. However, we know there’s nowhere like home, that’s why you’ll be home by 6pm every Friday, no matter where you live in the UK.

Work / life balance

We believe it’s important to switch off and unwind in the evenings, whether that be at the gym, having dinner with colleagues, or simply having time to yourself! We also have a strict no-work-on-weekends policy which means you know when it comes to the end of the working week, your time is your own.

Review days

Since we began, we’ve hosted Review Days regularly. It’s a unique aspect of our culture and a chance for the entire company to collaborate and help solve project challenges together. We also have Review Nights the previous evening, which allows colleagues to unwind, network and socialise in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

“There's a really good support system. The line manager is responsible for the day-to-day. Anytime you need support, support is there. This makes it easier to deliver work and do new things.”

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

The training and development we offer our people is second-to-none and is widely considered an invaluable asset among consultants.

Our graduates go through a similar developmental journey up to their first promotion. After which, plans are tailored to each individual’s strengths and aspirations. Every single Newton employee is assigned a personal Development Manager whose aim is to help fulfil those ambitions and expand their horizons.

Induction (Weeks 1-4)

  • Exciting and empowering month-long induction, delivered by a Lead, Partner, Founder or our in-house Training Development Manager. We’ll teach you all the key skills needed to be a consultant and you’ll get to spend one week applying this on-site.

Extra induction (2-3 months)

  • After a few months, you’ll return with your induction cohort for a two-day refresher course. This will give you a chance to discuss your experiences and build on the skills you learnt in induction.

Consolidation (8-11 months)

  • Building on the skills you have gained so far from working on-site, this three-day course will advance techniques around efficiency and engagement to help you to deliver outstanding projects.

Becoming a Senior (15-18 months)

  • You’ll spend a week where we will help you prepare for your new responsibilities as a senior consultant. You’ll learn new management skills and improve your ability to build team and client relationships.

OTHER TRAINING

MANAGING PROJECTS:

Project management is key to the success of Newton. A two-day course will equip you with the skills and tools you need to be a great project manager.

LEARN TO CODE:

To improve your digital capabilities, we offer optional coding courses in languages such as Python and SQL, as well as more general coding training.

PRODUCTIVITY TRAINING:

A one-day course will give you a deeper understanding of the mind with strategies on focusing, managing expectations, and reducing the impact of distractions.

TRAIN NEW INDUCTEES:

Teaching is the best way to learn! You’ll assist in giving new consultants the first steps of the training that you underwent when you first joined.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

The people who work with us are very much individuals, but there are certain values and attributes all of us share. Whatever your background – STEM, Arts or Humanities, and whether you have a Bachelor's degree, a Master's or a PhD – these are the qualities we look for:

WHAT WE WANT YOU TO SHOW US

  • Curiosity - show us your curiosity. Prove you will leave no stone unturned when formulating ideas and developing skills to improve yourself.
  • Belief - We want you to have belief in your abilities and respect for the talents of others. That’s how we work and we want to know that’s how you’ll work too.

What we'll be looking for in you:

  • Strong analytical and conceptual capabilities, but you don't need to be an engineer or mathematician
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills
  • Real self-awareness and emotional intelligence
  • The ability to draw meaningful insights from an ocean of information
  • Self-motivation and an eagerness to take on early responsibility
  • A collaborative mindset and ability to work effectively as part of a team
  • A highly flexible and adaptable approach
  • A record of academic achievement, but not necessarily in a STEM subject

Start date: Flexible start dates, but join us as early as October 2022

We’re a team of the brightest and most curious minds with a fundamental belief that every organisation can be better.

We crack some of the toughest business and public sector challenges of the day. Not with reports or copy & paste thinking. But by pinpointing and implementing the changes that will make the biggest difference.

We never start out assuming we know the answer. But we’re always certain we’ll find it and see it through to the finish. By uncovering the data that means the most important decisions are made with facts, not opinions. By bringing together a group of people who live and breathe delivering results. And by embedding in your organisation this same passion, self-belief and know-how to thrive on any challenge in the future.

We believe so strongly in what we can achieve together that we stand by the founding idea of Newton – guaranteeing our fees against delivering results that are recognised by everyone, from the frontline to the boardroom.

We demand better in everything we do. We think you should too.
