Michael Mahony, Partner, talks to the MCA about recruitment in the consulting industry and the challenges that lie ahead.
Michael Mahony, Partner and Co-Founder of Berkeley Partnership, describes 2015 as a good year, but with some challenges. “We’ve hit our budget targets and done well. However, although we have seen a drop in fees from a major client these have been replaced by several new but smaller clients. Of course, this has been a mixed blessing - client diversification is a good thing and something we focus on, but we also recognise it does increase cost of sale. It also accentuates our firm’s key growth challenge. Capacity.”
Michael suggests that there is high demand for Berkeley Partnership’s specialised skills, especially in transformation programme and project management. They are also seeing demand in new areas, such as pre-deal operational due diligence, reflecting clients’ increasing interest in operational excellence and fitness for purpose. The principal constraint on the firm’s ability to grow is the pace at which Berkeley Partnership can grow its workforce. “As the consulting industry is doing well, the recruitment market is becoming more competitive.”
