Our team is structured across three core disciplines: (i) Technology Strategy; (ii) IT Cost Optimisation; and (iii) IT Mergers & Acquisitions, and our work typically involves the following:
 

•    Advising clients on what the strategic role of technology should be within their organisation: where does technology need to be truly differentiating and innovative, where it needs to be provided as a repeatable core service, and how to operationalise the capabilities (in house, outsource, partner etc.)
•    Modelling benefits and costs to deliver a substantiated business case for change alongside an achievable plan to deliver desired outcomes 
•    Identifying how IT TCO can be optimised through the analysis and prioritisation of cost levers across and beyond the IT estate
•    Building the right level of digital capabilities between technology and people to get organisations ready to tackle current and future challenges
•    Helping clients define their technology strategy for restructuring their technology asset base to support merger and acquisition initiatives or wider digital transformation objectives

•    Evidence of managing teams, including multiple workstreams in complex delivery environments 
•    The ability to build and maintain trusted relationships with senior client stakeholders
•    Experience in leading and supporting sales efforts, as well as shaping deal and engagement commercials 
•    Evidence of achieving sales targets 
•    Evidence of practice development, team building and developing more junior colleagues
 

The work:

 

No matter the project or customer, your work will have a meaningful impact on society, businesses and lives. It’s really rewarding. And it’s also really varied.
