Newton Europe – Why Work With Us?


Some would call us a consulting firm but we’re not a traditional one. We take on our clients’ apparently insurmountable challenges, and surmount them. But what exactly does this mean in practice? For one client – in the social care sector – it meant reducing Child in Need and Child Protection caseload numbers by 29%. For another – in the retail sector – it meant growing revenues by billion and fundamentally changing the way 80,000 people work. And for yet another – in the defence sector this time – it meant getting 64% more value out of every pound spent on a major build programme.

We don’t do off-the-shelf solutions or off-the-top-of-our-heads answers. We come into each project with our minds, as well as our eyes and ears, wide open. We get to know our clients, from the top floor to the shop floor. We probe every part of their organisation. We avoid easy answers. Instead, we ask tough questions. We’re interested in the ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’. And we care about driving the results that deliver the greatest impact. We trust the resourcefulness of our people – so much so that we put our fee on the line to guarantee results for our clients. Our goal is always to deliver a measurable result. We’re accountable for ourselves and each other. And we stick around until we’ve made change happen.

Newton values people from all kinds of backgrounds, with different passions, viewpoints, aspirations and ideas. The one thing we all share is a deep interest in others - we pride ourselves on the level of support we give to each other. You’re both colleagues and friends.

There’s a definite thrill to be had in our line of work. The projects are intellectually demanding, complex and often quite intense. That’s why, we’ll make sure that you’re home by 6pm on Friday. And that you don’t have to leave for work again before 6am on Monday.

We also have subsidised breaks throughout the year. Previous trips have included Italy for white-water rafting, Scandinavia for the Northern Lights, a castle on a private island for a murder-mystery weekend and Glastonbury festival.

If you like the idea of giving something back, there’s a commitment to fundraising and volunteering at Newton that’s an inherent part of our culture. In fact, we have a dedicated Newton Foundation which is involved in a range of social mobility projects.

We’re a fast-growing business, so career opportunities are abundant. And with all the support, training and development you need, there’s really no stopping you. There's constant, hands-on support provided by your line manager and a dedicated development manager, blindingly fast career progression where we promote on merit not tenure and support from amazing teams that always have your back.

If you join as a graduate we go to extraordinary lengths to help you make the most of your talents.

  • A comprehensive induction followed by a week on site applying the skills you’ve gained as part of a live project team.
  • On-the-Job learning - from week five, you’ll be on a project, with a client, running your own workstream.
  • Regular feedback and support - weekly one-to-ones with your line manager and peers. And a development manager who you’ll meet with regularly to discuss your career goals and how to achieve them.
  • Training with in-house experts – drawing on a wealth of knowledge from senior people at Newton through to consultants who were in your shoes a few years ago. And rather than standard classroom learning, we offer management courses in Europe and leadership training in Costa Rica.
  • Online learning platform – to download and share resources. A one-stop-shop that offers everything from TED Talks to blogs to real-life case studies.
  • A clear path to success – you’ll start as a consultant, go on to manage a team, own client accounts, lead projects and finally, influence the growth of Newton itself.

We’re not normal. To have the kind of impact we do we need to be different. Not just in how we do business, but the people we hire.

If you’re different, because you can shoulder responsibility from day one; if you’re eager to join one of the UK’s fastest-growing companies and push yourself to develop just as fast; and if you want to be part of a supportive and tenaciously challenging culture. Then that’s some differences we’ve got in common already..

    Pros

    Personal Development
    Energy
    Growth
    Impact
    Teamwork
    No limit on the number of promotions - so no internal competition for places
    Fun
    No weekend working (really)
    Impressive clients
    Share options for senior team
    A great place to learn
    A career accelerator

    Cons

    All consuming - flat out from 5:30am on a Monday until 6pm on a Friday every week. This could obviously be seen as a strength too!
    A strong culture for people with previous experience to join - it definitely can and has worked, but it takes time (years) and commitment to see it through
    Diversity - although there’s been a recent recognition of this and is beginning to change
