Policy Consultant(London/Bristol)

At Atkins we help our clients achieve genuine benefits from their business change programmes.  We advise at senior levels on complex problems and take a hands-on role to ensure that solutions are delivered to realise the expected benefits of investments. The role will be based in ANY of our Atkins UK Offices.

We’re not like other management consultancies. We have real-world expertise in developing and delivering projects across public and private sectors. Our clients trust us with their biggest challenges, and it’s this demand from our clients that led to the creation of our new Policy@Atkins team – a specialist advisory group working primarily with public sector clients to help develop viable solutions to knotty problems.

Our Policy@Atkins team is focussed on providing the best advice to our clients as they respond to challenges. We provide candid, pragmatic advice and work hand in hand with the client to develop viable policy propositions backed up by rigorous analysis, a deep understanding of the technical detail and high-quality user research.

We are a diverse team where everyone has an equal voice, and our diversity of ideas and approaches mean that we deliver novel and exciting solutions to our clients and their stakeholders. . We don’t mind if you haven’t been a consultant before, and we are far more interested in how you think than what you have done previously – so, if you would like to be a part of what we do, and how we help our clients solve some of the most challenging issues of the day, get in touch!

The Role

We are seeking new colleagues to join our fast-growing specialist policy advisory team – Policy@Atkins.

Policy@Atkins is a brand-new team – seeking to change the way policy is developed and delivered. You’ll be involved in:

  • Developing new research and writing thought-provoking material that moves the conversation forward in a given area of public policy
  • Delivering advisory services to our clients on projects within the policy domain
  • Overseeing or undertaking user research, data analysis and horizon scanning – the ingredients that support our work
  • Working with clients to figure out where we can help, and helping us to win new work
  • Collaborating across Atkins to gather leading thought for integration into client facing work and thought material
  • Developing the Policy@Atkins team, and yourself – by being a reflective team member, supporting our colleagues and learning from each other
  • Working with bid teams to shape tender responses and produce high quality bid content
  • Continually developing own knowledge and understanding of consulting skills and client markets and supporting the development of others.

  • Ideally you will have experience in one or more of our key markets (Defence, Aerospace, Security, Energy, Utilities, Highways, Rail and the Public Sector)
  • Experience working in, or close to, the Public Sector (or wider Public Sector) would be highly desirable, but not essential

People

  • You are a supportive team player and can communicate and collaborate effectively with a wide range of people.
  • You can demonstrate an ability to transfer skills and knowledge to colleagues and clients.
