School leaver opportunities

School Leaver Programme – Horizons

Horizons is an eight-month paid scheme specifically for people in their second year of college or upper sixth form. It’s the perfect mix of real-work experience and training and will show you what it takes to be a high-performing professional in consulting and build your talents, abilities and technical skills. What’s more, you’ll then have the chance to join us for a paid Summer Vacation Scheme and have soft skills training and mentoring alongside your degree. If you continue to do well, you could be offered a graduate position before you’ve even finished your degree. In short, this could be the first step towards a lasting career in consulting.
