What our consultants say:

  • "As I researched several of the larger consultancies I realised that being part of a huge tranche of new recruits wouldn't suit me. Actica provides the friendly and personal working environment I was looking for." Nick, Senior Consultant
  • "Variety is the key: I've been with Actica for nearly 8 years and during this time have worked on 30 projects for 17 different customers, ranging from a week to two years in length." Mark, Principal Consultant
  • "Throughout the recruitment process, I had been impressed with the people I'd met, and it was clear that I would be given a level of autonomy and accountability for my own work similar to that which I had experienced at University." Rachel, Principal Consultant
  • "When I joined Actica, I was assigned a mentor - Nicky - who was on hand to answer my (many) questions and it was really useful in helping me settle in. So I hope that in the next few years, I might be able to take on a mentor role and do the same for some of the new recruits too!" Mel, Principal Consultant
  • "The work is challenging but fun: there is also a real sense of a family unit which ensures that everyone is treated fairly and that they are recognised and rewarded for their hard work." Billy, Senior Consultant
  • "Speaking to my friends who work at larger consultancies I constantly hear of the lack of responsibility they are given. At Actica I was immediately given exciting and challenging pieces of work I could be proud of and significantly contributed to the projects I was working on." Ed, Consultant
  • "A great benefit of starting a career at Actica is the ability to gain experience of project work immediately after joining. Within a week, I was working on a project in a manner that provided the right level of support to ease the transition from an academic environment, whilst enabling me to make a contribution at an early stage." Rowan, Consultant
  • "By working for Actica, you are given the opportunity to contribute to some of the most important projects throughout the Public Sector. It's a great feeling to know your hard work is going to really make a difference!" Charles, Consultant
