Does it matter if I do not have a scientific or engineering background?

Our consultants come from a variety of educational backgrounds, including art, music, and language. However, regardless of degree, our consultants are required to have strong analytical skills. There is a focus on testing your mathematical and data analysis abilities in our application process, but we do not require a science-based degree subject of our candidates.

What are the key skills you look for?

We look for brilliant people who’d bring a range of skills to Newton. As we work on some of the most complex problems in the UK, we look for strong analytical skills and creative problem-solving abilities. Additionally, we work hand-in-hand with our clients so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are incredibly valuable as well.

Can I apply if I already have experience? Or should I apply to Experienced Hire?

Our experienced hire positions are only open to people with a minimum of 3 years of relevant consulting experience. Our graduate positions are open for anyone to apply. However, we must be transparent and stress that these are graduate positions and cannot be adjusted for candidates with several years of experience in other industries. All our graduates are treated the same, so this could become tedious for someone with many years of experience in previous positions.

Do I need to have a 2:1? Is the offer conditional on my degree?

There is no formal degree classification required for the role, however, we do look for strong analytical skills which are assessed in our online test.

Is there a limit to when I can apply after I’ve graduated? (e.g., if I graduated 3 or 4 years ago, can I still apply?)

We accept applications from already-graduated students, including previous candidates, so there is no time limit. That being said, if you have three or more years of relevant consulting experience, you would most likely be more suited to one of our experienced hire roles.
