At PA Consulting Group, our goal is to deliver success for the leaders of today while developing the leaders of tomorrow. We are committed to developing our people and through collaboration and support, helping them become the successful leaders of tomorrow.
Your career at PA:
There are few career opportunities that can provide the combination of accelerated learning and skill development, personal growth and challenge, and fast pace that are provided by the various consultant positions in our Information Technology business.
At PA, you will be able to apply your capabilities and talent toward both helping clients in their efforts to solve their complex business issues and helping them through to implementation.
Utilities are increasingly called on to evolve to meet stakeholder expectations and PA helps leverage the full potential from existing and new technologies. Utility customers and regulators expect a greater level of service, matching the service they get from other providers, such as financial institutions, telecoms and consumer services. At the same time, there is also constant pressure to for Utilities standardize and streamline operations across the value chain, while ensuring reliable service at an affordable price. The challenge however is for Utilities to just adapt, but to transform their entire business and enterprise IT architecture to operate in a highly connected, data-driven and service-centric world. They must become “Digital Utilities”.
We are looking to grow our team at all levels in the Digital Utility space and we offer you challenging assignments and the ability to take ownership of your career and tailor your career path and progression at your own pace, in a way that helps you achieve your personal goals. You can choose to specialize in a service area and have the opportunity to work in other industries. You will have the opportunity to work internationally or to transfer between our global practices if you desire.
We distinguish ourselves by taking a very pragmatic, hands-on approach in solving client problems. Most of our consultants have prior industry or consulting experience. We operate in small teams that are drawn together with a mix of senior and junior consultants who have the relevant skills and expertise needed to solve the client’s problem.
