Private equity investment


PA agreed a private equity-style investment with Jacobs in March 2021, a global technical and professional services leader that is “Challenging today, Reinventing tomorrow”. PA and Jacobs have shared values that are based on always doing the right thing for their people, planet and clients; a strong purpose; a desire to make the world a better place; and a drive to help innovative organisations go further, faster.


The relationship with Jacobs will allow PA people to maintain ownership in our business, to act with the care of owners and to benefit from the value that we deliver. More than two-thirds of our people own shares in PA. And it will create new opportunities for our people to build their careers and do impactful work.


The investment from Jacobs sees The Carlyle Group exit their investment in PA after a successful five-year partnership. Together, we’ve built strong foundations that will let us continue to provide exciting new opportunities for our people and clients, and over the next five years grow our firm to more than £1 billion.


Since our founding in 1943, the story of PA has been one of ingenuity – ingenious work that grows businesses, delights customers, serves citizens and improves the health of the planet. As we turn the page with Jacobs, we're excited by the opportunity to create new, and even better stories in the years ahead.

 

Inclusion & Diversity Statement

We believe that diversity makes us a stronger firm and look to employ people with different ideas, styles and skillsets. This diversity stimulates a rich, creative environment – one in which our people develop, and our clients enjoy enduring results. We’re committed to recruiting, promoting and rewarding our people solely based on their ability to contribute to PA’s goals, without regard to their sex, race, disability, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or marital status.

We welcome international applications, but we are unable to offer sponsorship for work permits, so you will need to have the full right to live and work in the UK. Unfortunately, your application will be automatically rejected if you do not have these rights.

Should you need any adjustments to the recruitment process, at either application or interview, please contact us on   recruitmentenquiries@paconsulting.com
