How many graduates can say that they had a casual one on one coffee with the CEO of the company they work for? I am lucky enough to have had this opportunity at P2 Consulting.
I joined in September 2018, straight after finishing my masters at King’s College. I knew from previous professional experiences that I wanted to get into a management consultancy and P2 Consulting immediately caught my eye when I started my job search. It seemed to be a very dynamic consultancy that had an attractive portfolio of clients, delivered a range of exciting and diverse assignments and most important of all, had a successful consulting Academy.
I was aware that P2 had a lot of exciting opportunities for graduates, but little did I know that my expectations would be exceeded just three months in. P2 has a plethora of blue-chip clients and fascinating assignments, but what really makes a difference is that I find myself learning and growing in the most welcoming and stimulating professional environment a graduate could hope for.
A striking feature of P2 Consulting is how approachable everyone is at all levels no matter whether they are in the Academy, a Senior Consultant or as I mentioned earlier, the CEO. Not only did P2’s CEO take some time in his busy schedule to have coffee with me but also with the four other Academy members that I started with. As far as I am aware none of the friends I went to university with and who are now employed in a graduate scheme have had this opportunity. Not only did it allow me to get a better understanding of what P2 is trying to achieve as a business but it also made me feel part of the company.
