Event description


Consulting as a Career

Institute of Consulting

1) Ever fancied trying your hand at working as a consultant? If so, this half day event is for you. Run by the Institute of Consulting it includes an introduction to careers options in consultancy and contains two skills sessions and lots of practical opportunities to put your skills into practice.

Our first 'A Career in Consultancy' session is a one hour lecture-style format that gives students a practical insight into the consultancy sector and consultancy-related careers. There are various talks from experienced IC member consultants and the students get an opportunity to ask questions in an open and informal format nearer the end of the session.

Our 'Consultancy Skills in Action' session is a two hour skills-based workshop that is very much a 'hands-on' approach to consultancy. Students are allocated into groups and are given 20-30 minutes to tackle one of our cutting-edge case study scenarios. Each group will present to a consultant and we provide feedback for the students throughout the session. Prizes are available for the 'winning team' and, again, we host a 15-20 minute Q&A 'Question Time' session with students firing questions to our panel of industry consultants.

This workshop is open to any student currently registered on a degree programme at the University of Northampton. Further information is available from Simone Apel (; 01604 893418).
