Careers at Berkeley

For over 30 years, Berkeley has been doing things a little differently for both our clients and our people – working together to show how consulting should be.  

For our clients, this means bringing real world experience, creativity, insight and drive to deliver intelligent solutions for their most complex, business-critical challenges. For our people, this means giving everyone the trust and support they need not only to do their best, most legacy-defining work, but also to live a balanced and fulfilling life outside of work. Joining the Berkeley Partnership in New York isn’t just a chance to be part of an exciting growth story. It’s a chance to be part of a tight-knit community that for over 30 years, has been redefining exactly how consulting should be.

The Berkeley Partnership experience

Our work

Transforming ambitions into real results 

We specialize in helping organizations transform under the most complex, challenging and high-stakes circumstances. From finance transformation for a major news publisher to program turnaround for a global real estate business, we act as trusted partners to leadership teams to turn goals into results. We embed our consultants in hands-on, strategic client-side roles, giving them the freedom to develop the best approach, and use their extensive experience to bring a fresh perspective, creativity and constructive challenge. For us, there are no off-the-shelf-solutions and we always remain focused on the outcomes our clients want to achieve. 

Our culture

Doing the right thing for all our people 

Throughout the firm, our people embody our values of positivity, community, rigor, simplicity, respect and challenge. Our warm, open culture of belonging, and healthy approach to work, enables our people to pursue their personal and professional ambitions with the enthusiasm, time and energy they deserve.  We welcome fresh thinking, and diversity of background and perspective.  

We’re proud to be Great Place to Work certified in the US, and to be named as one of the top 25 best mid-sized companies to work for in the UK, as well as one of the top 10 firms to work for in London.  

Our structure

Doing the right thing, together 

We have a simple organizational structure and flat hierarchy. One that is founded on warm, supportive relationships and promotes transparency, trust and teamwork above all else. This means no sales or utilization targets and simply doing what’s right for the client. Consultants are highly trusted and have freedom, while partners are always available to give guidance and support as needed. Despite our growth story, this fundamental way of working has endured. 

Our community

Meaningful connections for life and work 

We invest lots of time and energy in a vibrant social scene. This is because we know a career in consulting can be demanding but equally, we know it should be fun. You can do as much or as little as you want, but there’s always plenty to choose from: from book club to baseball, wine tasting to weekends away, there’s so much to get involved with. We also have lots of work-related get-togethers, both in New York and in London, to keep everybody connected, informed and consulted on all things present and future Berkeley. 

Our benefits

Our comprehensive benefits package is designed to make sure you know just how much we value your work and give you the support you need. You’ll start with us on a competitive salary, and you can look forward to annual pay rises that reflect your personal development. Plus we offer everyone: 

  • 30 days PTO plus 8 national holidays
  • 4% 401k employer contribution
  • Private medical insurance (with full family cover and no monthly co-pay)
  • Life insurance
  • Five discretionary days per annum to work with our charity partners
  • 16 -18 weeks paid maternity leave on full pay (available from day one)
  • Two weeks paid paternity leave on full pay (available from day one)
  • Cell phone and laptop of your choice
  • Flexible working option - some of our people work part time to balance work and home commitments.

Our flexibility

Respecting your life outside of work 

We know a career in consulting is often challenging and sometimes all-consuming. But we’re focused on getting to smart outcomes rather than hours on the job. We recognize when being face-to-face with a client really matters – but we also know how sometimes working from home can help a healthy, balanced life. We understand our people have a constantly changing range of life circumstances. Some of our consultants and partners work part-time, and we support flexible working arrangements.
