  • Digital transformation projects, in particular, are driving growth in this sector with many UK businesses looking to consultancy firms for support in embracing new technologies.
  • Consultancies work in a variety of industries and on a diverse range of projects. As a result, students from every STEM discipline will find opportunities within this sector.
