– Henry Porter, Consultant
31ten is looking to make a number of new hires into our local government housing & regen consulting team. We operate a flat structure reflecting the value we place on each team member’s contribution, so we only have one consulting band which accommodates consultants with a range of experiences and associated reward packages, offering opportunities to grow and develop your business development, client delivery and technical skills from the point you are at right now.
We are interested in hearing from people who have previously worked for either a management consultancy and/or in the public sector and have 2+ years of experience. The key thing for us is your ability to add value to the projects you work on for our clients and finding you a home that fits you within the working culture we are trying to build.
We have entered an ambitious period of growth and are keen to speak to candidates who are interested in helping us to design and deliver services to local government which:
We hire the person first, experience second, shaping the role around the individual. We recognise that every candidate’s experiences and background will be different. We value a broad, diverse range of perspectives and we recruit based on competence and potential; typically, we expect the following:
We’re looking for consultants to join the team at three different levels, fitting within the below salary and experience bands:
Below are some examples of the roles people play at 31ten:
Kwame – Kwame joined 31ten with three years’ experience of working in the public sector as a local government officer in economy and skills. Kwame was keen to broaden his experience and use his knowledge of working within local government to support delivery of consultancy work, so 31ten were able to offer him several projects in his first six months. One of these involved developing a ‘Green Book’ Business Case for a local authority who were exploring the opportunity to set up an Investment Fund to support innovation and economic growth in their local economy. Kwame worked closely with the 31ten team to design and lead workshop sessions with the local authority to develop and explore the options for the Investment Fund before drafting and preparing the Business Case. The Business Case was subsequently approved, and Kwame is now supporting the local authority in the detailed operational plan to launch the Fund.
Sarah – Sarah joined 31ten with six years of experience, firstly as a local government officer and latterly at a large consultancy. Sarah was assigned to lead two projects simultaneously. The first was the completion of an options appraisal for a large potential regeneration scheme where the client was keen to examine and understand the options for the most appropriate approach to develop the sites. Sarah worked with 31ten colleagues to support the client in defining a clear set of measurable objectives and through a series of workshop sessions to review and appraise the options which led to the conclusion that a joint venture partnership was the most appropriate solution for the scheme. In parallel with this, Sarah project managed the viability review of a Town Centre masterplan, working with 31ten financial modelling colleagues and liaising with the multidisciplinary project team to develop a bespoke financial model to appraise the masterplan.
