Javelin Group and Accenture
Javelin Group was founded in 1997 by Tony Stockil, CEO, and Richard Wolff, COO and Strategy practice director, at the start of the ecommerce revolution, to help major retailers embrace multi-channel retail. Since then, we have continued to work at the heart of the retail digital revolution, growing the team to 230+ consultants, with offices in London and Paris, and development centres in Bulgaria. In June 2015, Javelin Group was acquired by Accenture to lead its capabilities in digital retail transformation within Accenture Strategy, and we remain a separate, specialist and distinct business unit within the firm.
We are looking for motivated, ambitious and top class graduates to join our Strategy Consulting team as Associate Consultants. You will work primarily from our central London office and serve clients around the world.
Over the course of your first 12-18 months you will develop your consulting skills through on-the-job learning as well as formal training. You will be given responsibility from day one, participate in all aspects of a project, have unrivalled client contact, and help to make a visible difference to some of the world’s largest and most dynamic companies. You will gain experience of our different types of work and gather the suite of skills required of a first-class strategy consultant.
Our retail and digital strategy projects typically last 6-12 weeks and can involve, for example, setting out the omni-channel vision of a major UK retailer, defining new retail propositions, finding the latest innovations in food business models, or developing a roadmap for international expansion. Our focus is to help our clients be as successful as they can be.
We accept applications from undergraduates/graduates and are looking for academic excellence (expecting/achieved a 2:1 or better, with excellent A-levels), a desire to work in strategy consulting, as well as an enthusiasm for the retail sector. Graduates will be based in Javelin Group’s Head Office in central London.
