6 reasons to become an employed consultant

Adrian Godding
Consulting is a job where no two days are the same. The salary is competitive and it offers candidates the opportunity to learn new skills and have a tangible impact on the organisation they work for. However there are also drawbacks, the hours are long and the deadlines tight. So what’s the solution to working as a consultant but being able to enjoy the benefits of a permanent employee while, at the same time, gaining experience across many different organisations?

Capita’s Employed Consultant Model allows you to enjoy all the benefits of permanent employment with added freedom. You may already be working as a freelance consultant and yearn for more security in a role. Perhaps you are working in a permanent non-consultancy role and are looking for a new challenge? Whatever your background, employed consultancy could be the answer.

Here are six reasons why working as an employed consultant might just be your ideal choice of career:

1. High on security, low on risk

Employed consultancy is a great way to make the leap from contracting or a permanent position to consulting without the risks associated with operating as a limited company yourself. Many people feel nervous about entering the world of consultancy, but employed consulting bridges the gap between contracting and consulting, offering you greater security and fewer risks.

2. You'll never be bored

As an employed consultant, you’ll gain plenty of experience from working for a variety of well known companies, without ever getting bored. You can enjoy a range of exciting environments and projects, learning fresh new skills all the time. Employed consultancy also offers many new challenges and could open a few doors along the way too.

3. Get the best of both worlds

Employed consultancy offers more flexibility than a permanent role. You will also feel a greater sense of security compared to being a traditional contractor. You may choose to move on after 12 months or your company could ask to retain you as a permanent member of staff. Nothing is set in stone – the world is your oyster.

4. Reach your full potential

You will receive on-going training and development as part of being employed by Capita. We work to develop the skills of all our employed consultants to enhance your capabilities in line with client demand. We do that by constantly monitoring the market place to assess which skills are required by our clients, both now and in the future.

5. Enjoy the perks of the job

One of the main advantages of being employed by Capita is that you receive our impressive employed benefits package. All of our employed consultants enjoy a pension, car allowance, bonus incentive scheme and a competitive salary amongst other benefits. This is in addition to our comprehensive training and development plan and the chance to work for some of our largest clients.

6. There's more to a CV than qualifications

Capita recruit employed consultants based on their sector experience. This means you won’t miss out on a role just because you haven’t got a specific degree in a certain sector. The Capita recruitment process is centred on knowledge and experience within a key specialism. When it comes to employed consultancy roles, your experience counts for a lot; you could find yourself working for organisations that might have seemed out of reach before.
