WHY CONSULTING?

Our stories

  • Never not collaborative

    “Most consulting firms just go into their clients' organisations, point out the problems, write a report and leave. We're more interested in figuring out what the root causes of those problems are, then helping clients to fix them. 

     

    Although the firm is well established now, it's not in the least bit set in its ways. There's a certain humility; a realisation that no one person knows everything. As a result, there's a mutual sense of trust – and everybody's always open to new ideas.

     

    Our Review Days sum up Newton’s ethos. At first, I felt a bit uncomfortable calling on people I didn't know for advice. But the more colleagues I spent time with at the Review Days, the more I realised we're all here to support each other. The secret of our success, I think, is the way we tap into individual strengths and work together in a collaborative way.”

  • Never Not Honest

    “Right from the start, there was something refreshingly honest about Newton. Other employers seemed cagey about simple things like salary. But Newton was completely open. After attending the assessment centre, I knew this was the right choice for me. 

     

    My first project was focused on Adult Social Care. On the first day, my manager arranged for me to spend some time with a social worker and the lady she was looking after, who was in her 80s. Sadly, this lady had lost her confidence and was struggling to take care of herself. So to see her again later when she'd regained her independence and dignity as a result of our work, was unbelievably rewarding. 

     

    You're actively encouraged to stretch yourself, explore different sectors and try new things. If you grab those opportunities and throw yourself into each new challenge, you’ll develop skills that will serve you well in any situation.”

  • Never not diverse

    “Having been in the job for a year now, the biggest perk is the variety of the work you do. One week you could be with one client then the next another. You’re very integrated with the client. You can live anywhere in the country, and you just travel to the client site, wherever it is. 

     

    From a digital perspective to get such a wide range of experiences, which I’m not sure you’d get so much elsewhere. As demand for our digital expertise grows, so does our Digital team. Some clients call us in because their systems are actively driving bad decisions. But for others, it’s because they’re simply not realising the potential of the technology they have. 

     

    You’re thrown in at the deep end but you’re never going to drown. You’ll always have someone there to help and tell you what you need to be doing. Since recruitment, I’ve almost been waiting for a ‘too good to be true’ moment – but I don’t think that’ll ever come.”
