An event organised by The North West Biotech Initiative for the Liverpool Doctoral College. This event will focus on the different types of consulting, how to penetrate the industry and the right skills to ensure this.

Suitable for ALL PGR students and Master's students.

The consulting industry is an incredibly varied and fast-paced field with specialties ranging from strategy to finance, engineering, human resources, environmental, digital and corporate advisory companies. By definition, consulting is defined as “the practice of providing a third party with expertise on a matter in exchange for a fee.”

As a consultant, you are presented with many career opportunities which can be very rewarding in many ways. Potential employers include;

  • International consultancy firms including NGOs, Charities, the United Nations
  • Professional services firms or strategy sections of financial organizations such as accounting
  • Within a consulting firm; general consultants who cover a greater breadth of services, or specialist consultant offering a niche business service such as strategy or IT.

Regardless of the type, all consultants are heavily sought out by organizations from both private and public sectors, who seek help and advice about their complex and ever-changing business and policy issues.

Top employers include: PWC, KPMG, Deloitte, Adelphi, McCann Health and many more.

The transition from academia to consulting can be challenging, especially when lacking relevant professional experience. Moreover, entry level roles at large firms are extremely competitive and it is often difficult to stand out in a crowd of equally qualified peers. Fortunately, the NBI is here to help you through this process!

Learn about consulting and how to develop the right skills to be employed in this industry.
