Job Description & Summary

Consulting R&Q plays a key role as an enabler in supporting Middle East Consulting (“Consulting”) to achieve its strategy. Our Consulting practice has grown significantly on the back of an increasing number of multi-million-dollar, multi-territory, technology enabled transformation projects. Increasing use of contingent workforce, lower cost network firms and service delivery centres and more innovative commercial models have added complexity and increased contractual and delivery risk. Furthermore, our clients’ expectations about what we are responsible for often exceed our contractual responsibilities, which needs careful management. Our engagement teams need close guidance and support from trusted advisers in R&Q to manage these risks while protecting our reputation and brand.

We support Consulting project teams throughout the entire engagement lifecycle from bidding through contracting and on into delivery, taking a partnership approach to work alongside and collaborate with partners and teams. We have been continuously upskilling and growing our team and are now looking for experienced business professionals to help us continue to support the business.

We are looking for experienced professionals at the levels of Manager and Senior Manager who are solutions-focused, skilled at building relationships, enjoy being at the heart of change and want to be part of a relevant, cohesive, vibrant and growing team. 

Role Responsibilities

  • Acting as the first point of contact for queries from consulting engagement teams, providing timely and solution-focused pragmatic advice.

  • Supporting the pursuit of large scale transformation opportunities, working alongside the engagement and Consulting leadership and other risk management functions.

  • Delivering training to partners and staff across Consulting, including one-to-one sessions and seminar-based training.

  • Building trusted relationships across Consulting and other support teams, acting as a dedicated business advisor to Partners and Directors.

  • Coaching new joiners and junior team members.

Key Requirements

  • Interest in understanding the types of risks Consulting faces – reputationally, financially, permissibility of services – and how these are mitigated or managed by the firm.

  • Be a self-starter who is proactive and flexible and has a positive attitude

  • Ability to provide pragmatic advice, whilst protecting the firm by understanding the importance of the firm’s ‘red lines’.

  • Be able to work both independently and as a team, with good project management skills, able to prioritise and manage multiple projects at a time while working to agreed deadlines.

  • Be creative and willing to think of new and innovative approaches to our work.
