What you will be doing

You will work across the cloud and transformation lifecycle - it may be writing a business case, design of a technical solution, conducting an assurance assignment or delivering business change. You will work with an exceptionally diverse and talented team of consultants who are driven to bring the best of cloud technology to life for our clients. You will have hands on experience and be expected to challenge yourself and your colleagues in delivering the solutions our clients need.

Our clients expect us to bring the best thinking, to work rapidly and join up with them so that we travel the journey together. We work collaboratively with our clients making every endeavour a joint commitment and achievement.

You will need to be proactive in finding opportunities to develop your skills and support or shadow more experienced consultants. Through networking internally and externally you will build a support team around you, develop your own brand in the marketplace and be able to shape your career in the direction you want to go.

Cloud Capability at PA Consulting Group

PA’s Cloud team works with businesses across public and private sectors, helping C-level executives, IT experts and business leaders to deliver the transformational change they need to stay ahead. We have top-tier partnerships with AWS, Google and Microsoft, working closely with them to stay at the leading edge of cloud. We combine innovative thinking with technology; we deliver award-winning results with talented people who feel empowered and stretched.

We help clients create the infrastructure, organisation, capabilities and approaches they need. We take responsibility for the largest change programmes in government or commerce. We work shoulder to shoulder with our clients on every step of their transformation journey: starting from their business vision and objectives we design the strategy, define the delivery programme and execute the technical implementation.

Where necessary we disrupt. We combine industry-leading Agile development, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud and sourcing solutions with our team of outstanding solution architects. Our programme delivery and change experts understand how to achieve rapid and sustainable business benefits. We remain alongside our clients, whatever the weather.

Our clients come back to us again and again.
