LIFE AT NEWTON WHAT WE VALUE
Working at Newton
We pride ourselves on creating a workplace where fun and friendship is as important as high performance and delivering real impact for our clients. That's why we get together every 2 weeks to solve some of the biggest challenges faced by our clients, why we organise weekends away together and why we have the Newton Foundation which aims to help tackle bigger issues like social mobility and homelessness.
Who better to tell you about life at Newton than those who live it?

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
We go to great lengths to ensure the training and development we offer is
second-to-none and it’s widely considered a valuable asset among Newton consultants.
Our graduates go through a similar developmental journey up to their first promotion, but after that, plans are tailored to individual’s strengths and aspirations. Every single Newton employee is assigned a personal Development Manager whose aim is to help fulfil those ambitions and expand their horizons.
A 4-week intense induction where you will learn about Newton’s core methodology with a Founding Director. We’ll teach you all the key skills needed to be a consultant and you’ll spend one week applying this on-site.
After a few months, you’ll return with your induction cohort for a two-day refresher course. This will give you a chance to discuss your experiences and build on the skills you learnt in induction.
Building on the skills you have gained so far from working on site, this three-day course will advance techniques around efficiency and engagement to help you to deliver outstanding projects.
Becoming a Senior
You’ll spend a week in Europe where we will help you prepare for your new responsibilities as a senior consultant. You’ll learn new management skills and improve your ability to build team and client relationships.
Your first promotion will lead you to the role of Senior Consultant.
Project management is key to the success of Newton. A two-day course will equip you with the skills and tools you need to be a great project manager.
LEARN TO CODE:
To improve your digital capabilities, we offer optional coding courses in languages such as Python and SQL, as well as more general coding training.
A one-day course will give a deeper understanding of the mind with strategies on focusing, managing expectations, and reducing the impact of distractions.
TRAIN NEW INDUCTEES:
Teaching is the best way of learning! You’ll assist in giving new consultants the first steps of the training that you underwent when you first joined.
HEAD OFFICE GRADUATE ROLES
Like the sound of Newton but not sure consulting is right for you? Our Head Office Graduate Programme recruits a small number of talented graduates each year across three different work streams: People & Marketing, Operations, and Information Technology. Get in touch to find out more.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We’re all about implementation at Newton and as such it’s not enough to just set out a vision – we’re here to make it a reality too. In that spirit, we have set ourselves tangible targets in four different areas, which will ensure that we reflect society more broadly, as well as the clients we work with.
Our NGroups are internally run, grassroots initiatives and consist of N-Clude, Wom-N, N-Pride, the Newton Foundation and the Ethnicity Network. They are designed to give a voice to all our people and support a more inclusive environment.
