Management Consultant (Digital & Technology team)

£45k - £75k • Full-time / Flexible • London / Remote

Job profile

31ten is looking for a collaborative and values-driven consultant to join our local government consulting team, with a particular focus on Digital Services and Technology. We operate a flat structure reflecting the value we place on each team member’s contribution, so we 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. 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 and staff support culture we are building. 

Key areas of focus

We are keen to speak to candidates who can design, lead and deliver small and larger-scale consulting services and projects to the public sector which: 

  • Help councils and other public sector organisations deliver better digital services to their customers 
  • Enable our clients to deliver better end-to-end and internal digital services and technology 
  • Transform technology in the public sector to deliver better outcomes and value 
  • Assess and evaluate the technology products that our clients use and advise them on realistic routes for achieving the change 
  • Support our clients in technology change and transformation to ensure success from business case and options appraisal through to delivery

The points above reflect our broad-ranging mission, so we don’t expect experience in them all. In fact, our preferred recruits tend to have a focused CV with strong evidence of experience in one or two areas. Your ability to deliver large-scale projects and effectively manage a variety of stakeholders throughout the lifecycle will be crucial.

We value a broad, diverse range of perspectives and we recruit based on competence and potential; typically, we expect the following: 

  • Extensive knowledge and experience of working directly with, managing or leading digital and technology services and projects in the public sector, especially with Local Authorities 
  • Experience of working within or closely alongside several UK Local Authority service areas, for example; Customer Services, Revenues and Benefits, Education support services, Regulatory and Environmental services, Planning and Building Control etc. 
  • Experience of working as a consultant or adviser within the UK Local Authority sector, ideally focussed on digital and technology services 
  • The ability to engage successfully with clients and client teams, as a lead or as part of a team 
  • Supporting business development, from coordinating and producing material for proposals to developing and leading market propositions 
  • A demonstrable commitment to improving public sector and local government digital services 
  • Contributing to the design and delivery of projects, as a lead or as part of a team

Benefits

  • Annual salary: £45k – 75k, dependent on experience with extensive evidence required to reach the higher end.  
  • Performance-based bonus every 12 months 
  • Work-life balance – we recognise that everyone has interests and commitments outside of their work and so we strongly advocate for working in the way that’s best for you. Whether that’s part-time, condensed hours, from home or the office, flexible working arrangements are actively supported 
  • Matched pension up to 6% of gross salary
