CIL is a consulting firm with a market-leading position within our niche. Most of our engagements involve an M&A element, primarily to advise private equity firms who are looking to invest in high growth businesses in the UK, Europe and the US. We also provide strategy consulting to a variety of companies, from global blue chips to some of the most successful smaller businesses. We work across a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, IT, financial services, energy, manufacturing, leisure, business services and many others.
Although we work in structured project teams, we are socially very equal, lively and inclusive. There are no corner offices, no cliques – we work in open-plan offices and are not political. We think ‘a culture’ is something larger firms have to invent. Ours is the product of the people we employ.
We have offices in London and Frome (near Bath), as well as an office in Chicago. Our London office is based in the heart of The City, whilst our Frome office offers all the benefits of a consulting career from a base in the Somerset countryside. We welcome applications from experienced hires to both our UK offices.

Most experienced hires join CIL as Managers or Senior Analysts.
The Manager role is a great opportunity to lead teams and projects of all shapes and sizes. In this role, you'll support investors in understanding how and why businesses grow, while also growing more junior team members to reach their full potential. We will expect a lot of you in this role, and will support you with a two week induction process, proprietary training tailored to where you are in your career, and a network of supportive colleagues. We also like to fit in the odd social, so we're looking for someone who likes to get to know people as well.
The Manager role focuses primarily on project management, though coaching more junior colleagues and helping with sales is also key. Your responsibilities will include:
The Senior Analyst role is where you will learn the tools & techniques needed to be an effective Manager. As a Senior Analyst, you are more likely to be responsible for specific workstreams within a project under guidance from a more experienced Manager or Senior Manager.

Successful CIL people share some key attributes – we are supportive, non-hierarchical, hard-working, unpretentious and direct. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.
