US Entry Level Opportunities - Philadelphia, Boston
Thorogood is an independent, specialized consulting firm that works with some of the biggest and best-known companies around the world. We work with managers at all levels to help them understand their business goals in the context of the technical possibilities and to design and develop business intelligence and analytics solutions. We compete on the basis of our specialism, our people, high quality and assured delivery.
Our consultants are expected to have a strong interest in business, and excellent listening, writing and presenting skills as well as the aptitude and motivation to master multiple technologies in a fast-moving field. We work in combination with customers and colleagues (in the US, UK, India, Singapore, and Brazil) to provide effective solutions. The ability to work collaboratively and effectively as part of a distributed team is a pre-requisite.
Our most successful consultants develop a well-rounded set of skills around consulting and people management, business understanding and technology. You’ll do so through
- Comprehensive training: (depending on prior experience) You will start with our training program, in which experienced consultants will introduce you to the technologies we work with, the industries we serve and the way we develop our business. Crucially, we will share how we live our values. When you’ve finished, we’ll plan to have you working on a client project immediately.
- Building your core technology skills: We’re the kind of people who learn best by doing. You’ll be working on a team locked onto business value for the customer to develop fast, effective and high-quality technical solutions.
- Working with top clients – some of the biggest and best-known companies in the world: You’ll be a part of client interactions, sometimes leading them, to make sure we’re keeping our projects on track and our clients happy.
- Developing relationships: We consider ourselves trusted advisors for our clients. We earn this trust through open communication and by delivering valued solutions.
- Working as part of a supportive project team: You’ll be working either from our office or traveling externally to the client’s site. Your project team will be a mix of experienced and more junior consultants working together daily to support one another along the way.
- Become an expert yourself: Our experts are not necessarily the most tenured people at Thorogood. In the rapidly changing world of Business Intelligence and Analytics, we look to all levels of experience for our expertise in new technologies.
In addition to client work, Thorogood consultants run our company. We expect you’ll be contributing here, too.
- Helping to grow your own value and our business: Interact with clients, listen to their needs and assist in business development meetings and demonstrations to help them understand their business goals in the context of what’s technically possible.
- Get involved with our educationally-focused marketing events: Prepare and deliver informational events for prospective clients.
- Helping to develop our consultancy: Contributing to recruiting, training and managing.
