Consultancy.uk, an online platform that focuses on the management consulting industry, has today launched its operations in the United Kingdom.
The UK consulting industry is with an estimated size of $19.4 billion together with Germany the largest market in Europe, and from a global perspective the UK belongs to the top 5 advisory markets. Despite the sheer size of the market and the pivotal role consulting firms play in the professional services industry and even in the British economy, the UK to date lacked a central online platform that serves the wide range of requirements (marketing, recruitment, business development, market information, etc) from both within and outside the consulting industry.
Consultancy.uk addresses and integrates these different information requirements into one platform, and has the ambition to grow to the #1 consulting platform for consultants, internal consultants, job seekers, students and clients of consulting firms. An overview of Consultancy.uk’s focus:
