Job Role:

Engagement Manager- Strategy Consulting

We are seeking experienced strategy consultants with project management experience relevant to our specialism.

Who we are and what we do

We are a London-based strategy consultancy. We unlock revenue growth potential for businesses and brands by creating strategies that engage leaders and their teams.

We are a small but experienced business; for over 20 years, we’ve been igniting growth for some of the world’s biggest businesses and brands.

We work across multiple sectors with exciting and instantly recognisable clients and brands. Recent projects have seen us working with ABInBev, Odeon, Clarks, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Sport England and AkzoNobel. Find out more about what we do and who we work with here.

The opportunity

Our specialism is building commercially credible growth strategies for our clients. This means we play in spaces like competitor, portfolio and group-wide business strategy.

Our engagement managers take responsibility for the full project cycle, shaping client briefs, scoping projects, designing solutions and managing project teams to deliver brilliant outcomes.

They will also be expected to take direct responsibility for at least one internal project.

About you

If you are an experienced strategy consultant with a proven track record of working with consumer facing businesses, then we would love you to get in touch!

We are seeking accomplished engagement managers who are comfortable dealing with ambiguity, and working with c-suite clients.

We believe in developing solutions collaboratively with client leadership teams and much of our work is workshop based. Therefore, you will need to be a highly credible presenter and facilitator who is adept at building trust-based relationships.

Similarly, it is essential that you have a flair for leading teams to produce creative analytics (whether quantitative or qualitative), and an ability to craft the insights drawn from this into an impactful story.

Cognosis suits those who enjoy working with numbers and people alike. Couple this with intellectual curiosity, a growth mindset and a willingness to bring a point of view, and the chances are you will thrive here.

The work environment

We work with board level clients as well as strategy, marketing and insights teams, and our client interactions are frequent.

Our team is currently working remotely. Whilst some travel is anticipated in more usual times, we do not base our teams on client premises during projects. This enables staff to build strong and collaborative networks with colleagues outside of their immediate project teams.

You will get to know your new colleagues quickly and find them generous with their time and experience; we are not big on hierarchy at Cognosis and everyone’s contribution is valued.
