A career in consulting would see you become an advisor to companies or individuals, and there are a number of capacities in which you might do this. You could be an IT consultant, an environmental consultant or recruitment consultant, for example. But one of the most sought-after careers in consulting is management consultancy, which means helping businesses to overcome problems, grow in size or run more efficiently. Management consultants provide strategic input and advise on solutions, such as restructuring the company to achieve better cost-efficiency. This is the kind of career you could pursue at the aforementioned ‘Big Four’ audit firms, but you could also be more specialised by working for a consulting group that targets a particular industry (the Spire Consulting Group, for instance, is dedicated to the construction industry).
