Careers at PA

There’s never been a better time to join

We’re not a traditional consulting firm

Our clients recognise we’re different. We’re different in ‘what’ we do, and even more in ‘how’ we do it. Our strategy work helps clients deliver innovation into the real world. At the heart of our business are our people – strategists, technologists, digital experts, consultants, designers, scientists and engineers – all of whom bring real-world experience and apply it at pace.

When you join PA, we ask for your ideas, expertise and commitment. In return we’ll give you stimulating work that improves people’s lives, opportunities to learn from brilliant people and a supportive culture where you can thrive.

Our purpose, Bringing Ingenuity to Life, drives us. We recognise an inclusive culture invites diversity; and diversity is the fuel for ingenuity. So, we seek and welcome applications from people of every background and diversity characteristic, and work hard to ensure that everyone at PA has the opportunity to bring their true self to work. And we’re committed to listening to, engaging with and learning from all our people as we build a positive human future.

I have been at PA for over 20 years and have worked with over 30 different client organisations. I work predominantly in PA’s analytical service space and I’m often called upon to review and assure modelling work produced by colleagues and clients. The most attractive things I have found about working in PA are its great people and the variety of projects available to keep work interesting, the projects yield real tangible changes that directly affect people’s lives. My highlights include helping to open the electricity market, the procurement of UK passports and supporting the NHS save very large sums of money. If you want to make a real difference, whilst working alongside great people, and on a wide variety of interesting projects and clients, then join PA.

I joined PA as a Consultant 7 years ago now. I work with clients to deliver operational improvements across the Defence and Security sector. I was attracted to PA because of the variety of work and the potential to make a real difference. At PA, you can create and shape a career that is personal to you rather than being on a pre-determined path; you can decide where you work, who you work with, where you want to grow new business and what wider activities you want to get involved in. My highlight so far has been my involvement in the design of the Prime Minister’s WeProtect event, which brought together 100+ technology experts to develop solutions to protect children from online sexual exploitation.

I joined PA as an Analyst and am now a Managing Consultant in the Life Sciences team, working with our emerging bio tech clients to help them develop the organisational structures, technology and processes required to bring new products to market. There are probably two key reasons that I stay at PA: one is that I’m constantly learning new things (even after 18 years); secondly, each time I’ve reached a cross roads in my life where I’ve thought about moving, PA has made it easy for me to move within PA. This is a great place to start a consulting career – you’ll work with people who have a diverse set of skills and experience, have opportunities to make a tangible difference to clients and learn a lot along the way.  And if your experience is anything like mine, you’ll also make some life-long friends.

I have been with PA since 2016, and it has been amazing to see the company evolve. PA gives you the freedom to grow and you have a high degree of flexibility in how you work and what you work with. One of my great passions when I started was financial technology (Fintech) and PA gave me the opportunity to pursue my interest all the way, which eventually made me an expert in Fintech.
The best thing about PA is the fact that I get to work with some of the most talented people to bring ingenuity to life; we always support each other to ensure we deliver the highest value to our clients.
I appreciate our informal culture and the flat organisational structure.
The people in PA are all really easy going and helpful – and most important of all, the people in PA are fun to be around.
A lot of both present and previous PA colleagues are my close friends today.
