Careers with PPL

Over the last 12 years PPL has grown to become one of the Financial Times top management consultancies in the UK and winner of MCA Awards for Innovation, Client Service & Value and Ethical Behaviour.

As a Social Enterprise, we are committed to continuing to develop and grow our social impact, and to re-investing over half of our annual profits in furthering our mission to promote better health, wellbeing and economic success across the UK.

PPL is built around the quality of our delivery, the quality of our thought and insights, and the quality of our employee experience.

These three elements are critical to how we work as an organisation.

If you believe in developing and harnessing your professional skills to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our society today, you can find more details below. We look forward to hearing from you!

PPL does not use recruitment agencies: we evaluate and respond directly to each application ourselves.

If you would like to bring your intelligence, skills, experience, insights into the PPL team, we are looking for:

  • evidence of strong academic / professional performance,
  • demonstration of good interpersonal, relationship and communications skills,
  • relevant sector experience, whether gained directly or through volunteering or supporting services in other ways,
  • experience or interest in analysis, writing, organisational development and working with complexity.

Above all, we look for people who are passionate about delivering high quality results, and committed to supporting both their own professional growth and development and that of their colleagues.

A core part of our employee experience is our CMI-recognised “How We Learn” programme.

Our professional development team supports colleagues at each stage of their careers from apprentices to senior managers in developing the key skills and confidence to help organisations and communities achieve better outcomes.

And through our networks of clients and partners, we enable those skills to be put into practice working in partnership with colleagues in the NHS, central and local government, and the voluntary and community sector to make positive change happen.

At each grade, we work with you to a defined set of client expectations and performance which describes what you, as a PPL team member, will be expected to deliver. Our recruitment process gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your abilities through a mix of interviews and aptitude tests which help establish the potential fit with roles within our team, with the opportunity to receive structured feedback at each stage.

We welcome applications from existing consultants and from those wanting to move into consultancy with a social purpose.
