A creatively minded Business Consultant, who has a willingness to learn and desire to leave the world a better place is needed to join a specialist consultancy that leverages the power of visual aids to help people understand anything that’s big, complex, ambiguous or difficult. Working alongside a talented team of Illustrators, Software Developers, and other Consultants you will have a key hand in producing easy to understand, bite sized visuals that help clients see their systematic problems and how they can change them.

Working with organisational leaders, programme directors and cross-industry groups, they make conceptual maps that give everyone a shared image of what’s going on, and where the potential problems lie.
