Candesic is recruiting a consultant with an interest in healthcare strategy and financial investment, within both public and private sectors. You will form an integral part of the client project team, providing direct support to the Engagement Manager and informal guidance to Analysts. You will be asked to judge the context of a deck content for approval by the Engagement Manager, provide informal guidance for the analysts, and suggest a work stream.
You will have experience working as an established member of a successful team but previous experience in consulting is not necessary as you can join as an intern with a pathway to transfer to full time employment after 3 to 6 months. Our sectors of focus are healthcare, pharmaceuticals, pharma services, medical devices and/or digital health. Proven consultants can opt to work part-time or on specific projects.
A PhD/Masters qualification is required.
About the Applicants
Applicants will be driven by the excitement of working with dynamic and highly talented people on the most challenging of business problems. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of sector knowledge, technical excellence, and track records of high performance, motivation and integrity and client service. Applicants should also have reasonable analytical skills and have intermediate knowledge of using Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. Scientific backgrounds and knowledge of European languages are a plus.
Candesic is offering training and internship throughout the year. We are a team of strategy consultants operating within health, social care, education and technologies in both public and private sectors. Successful candidates will be working in a dynamic team environment, quickly learning and putting into practice consulting skills and industry expertise.
We are looking for senior consultants reporting to our partners. You will be leading projects with a delivery team, creating the sense of a common goal, trust and collective effort. You will manage a budget and a team with a view to deliver within a strict deadline. Significant experience leading a team of similar size in a top-tier consulting firm (MBB, Big 4) or technology/service provider is required. Experience in our sectors of focus (healthcare, pharmaceuticals, pharma services, medical devices and/or digital health) with at least one area of subject matter expertise is essential.
Our managers demonstrate ambition, personal commitment and provide a high quality track-record of developing strong relationships with clients. They are self aware and take responsibility for their own learning and development (‘self-starter’ attitude), providing coaching to others, and actively providing feedback. We value communicators with both verbal and written skills. IT skills, including very good MS Office (Word, Excel and Power Point) are required and working knowledge of European languages is desireable.
Candesic offers clients a unique model of consulting that delivers insight beyond what other
consultancies traditionally offer. The firm is led by consultants with a wealth of international
experience, supported by well-established teams with deep expertise across sectors, unrivalled
access to decision makers and a focus on high quality, original primary research. A rigorous
approach to data collection and analysis, coupled with sophisticated insight from interviews, drives
the development of our solutions. High-level access delivers opinion and forecasts from industry
heavyweights, policy makers and stakeholders. We specialise in strategy for companies looking for
expert advice on how to best capitalise on market trends, maximise their profitability and improve
their offering to service users and commissioners.
