Growth Strategy Managing Consultant aligned to Defence & Security

Become part of the team

Threats to national security are constantly evolving, whether they’re military, cyber or terror-related. So organisations must evolve to meet them. We help government departments, agencies, the military and police forces reshape and reorganise to counter threats and keep people safe. And we help aerospace, defence and security businesses anticipate and meet their clients’ needs.

Our diverse teams of experts work with government agencies and private sector companies to make them more efficient so they can handle budget pressure, and more responsive so they can prepare for the future.

We help our clients resolve strategic conundrums, like making sure the armed forces have enough people with the right skills and judging when to overhaul equipment and technology. We do it by taking the time to understand each challenge and opportunity, rather than offering an off-the-shelf solution. And we work with individuals, teams and entire workforces to ensure everyone is clear on their purpose and that culture change sticks.

We combine unrivalled sector insight with specialist expertise drawn from different industries and geographies. This means the solutions we develop are both innovative and pragmatic.

Whether you operate in the public or private sector, we can help to: 

  • increase the contribution of defence to national prosperity
  • strengthen national security to protect the public and save lives
  • promote innovation to maintain operational advantage
  • deliver greater productivity from the available resources
  • increase revenue, reduce costs and improve programme performance
  • address the technology, people, organisational and cultural aspects of change.

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

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
