What we look for

The people who work with us are very much individuals, but there are certain values and attributes all of us share.

Whatever your background – STEM, Arts or Humanities, and whether you have a Bachelor's degree, a Master's or a PhD – these are the qualities we look for:

Attributes we look for 

We assess everyone on their own merits. We like people from diverse backgrounds with different ways of thinking and unique skillsets. It’s what helps us deliver the most creative and effective solutions for our clients.

Key Requirements

Are you...?

Self-driven & determined

Able to motivate yourself and look for opportunities to improve things? Staying motivated even through a task or project might be challenging.

Willing to travel

Working hand in hand with our clients to get the best results means being on-site and away from home during the week.

Flexible with your approach

Consulting isn’t your standard 9-5 role. Our ability to create real impact for our clients sometimes involves working longer hours during a critical stage of the project.


Successful consulting requires working well with others. This could be with our clients, who you’ll work with early on in your career at Newton, to your wider team. We achieve more through collaboration and cultivating stronger bonds.
