What you will be doing

Our people make the difference to defence and security organisations. Unconstrained by conventional thinking, they deliver results that have a lasting impact. That’s something you will discover for yourself while working for PA’s Professional Services Team. Expect to take responsibility working alongside our clients, using your insight, intellect and interpersonal skills as part of a team solving some of the most complex and exciting challenges.

Professional Services Team at PA Consulting

The Professional Services Team focuses on a wide variety of different areas, ranging from Defence & Security through to transport and the public sector. Typically, the roles we provide will be for months or years with a client. Our team tends to work close to home, not subject to the normal mobility requirements of consulting. We deliver excellence in areas such as: project management; project controls - planning, risk and cost engineering; business case development and approvals management; and requirements engineering. We have people who are deep experts and those learning to become the experts of the future. Most importantly, we support each other and work with our clients to enable them to succeed.

Your role in the Professional Services Team

You will need to be numerate, and some of our team need to be good with attention to detail.
