Your Challenge

As a consulting, technology and innovation firm, PA doesn’t just offer you a job – we offer you a stake in our business and the chance to work on some of the most exciting challenges in business and government today.

Your Role in Government & Public Services 

You will work in small and highly innovative multi-disciplinary teams and be expected to take on significant responsibility, working with colleagues and clients at all levels. Progression is based on merit, not time served, and high performers will progress rapidly. 

You will get to work with a range of sub-sector specific teams (such as Education, Justice and Local Government), allowing you to experience a variety of work before developing a specialism as your career progresses. We expect our consultants to have the skills and knowledge to be able to work across the public sectors and therefore may work on other assignments to gain experience across the whole spectrum of consultancy service lines.
