Join Us

We are a people business. Talent is our main source of competitive advantage, so we are always looking for exceptional consultants to join our team. If you are analytical, curious about business, possess strong commercial acumen, have a mania for accuracy, and enjoy working in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment, then we would love to hear from you.


If you recognize yourself in the following attributes, you are likely to do well at Fairgrove:

Intellectually curious about business

Everyone here has an excellent academic record. More importantly, we like to ask ‘how?’ and ‘why?’. We enjoy tackling new challenges, learning about new businesses and markets, and solving our clients’ problems.

Strong commercial acumen

The best consultants are quick to ascertain the root cause of why a market is growing or in decline, or why one company outperforms another. Often this is intuitive. In assessing business plans, you need the ability to tell a realistic goal from a pipe dream.


The ability to rapidly forge relationships with clients and their customers is key. Effecting change within an organisation requires empathy, diplomacy and a human touch.


*Please note: we are no longer accepting Graduate applications for starts in September 2019. Our application process for 2020 starts will re-open in Autumn 2019.*

Fairgrove are interesting in recruiting for the following roles:

  1. Experienced Hire (>12 months experience)
  2. Independent Consultants (project-based)

Given the very high number of applications that we receive, we may not reply to you unless you meet the following criteria:

  • 1st or 2.1 from a leading University
  • The legal right to live and work in the UK

The following criteria are not strictly necessary but may confer advantage at interview:

  • Prior experience in strategy consulting or in serving a Private Equity client base (particularly for Experienced Hires and Independent Consultants)
  • Fluency in European languages, especially French or German


We are an ambitious, high-growth firm, with an informal, entrepreneurial culture and a close-knit team. You will have direct exposure to senior staff and clients from a very early stage, and will gain a huge variety of experience across multiple sectors, solving interesting strategic challenges on a daily basis.
