Training consultant

About us

We specialise in the design and delivery of bespoke, experiential development programmes for both private and public-sector organisations; we work across the UK and, occasionally, internationally.  Our programmes blend creative approaches including leadership challenges, working with professional actors, business simulations, psychometrics and a range of pragmatics models and theories.  Fundamentally our programmes develop the behavioural skills of individuals, this is done with a sharp focus on the application of these skills in the participants’ organisational context.

We are proud to be an employee-owned business with a clear focus on sustainability – not just for our work and impact for our clients, but in terms of our company and people too. Our company’s core values are: Care, Connection, Playful and Grounded.

About you

You’ll be ready to join an organisation that you can become integral to, helping shape its future and sharing in its success.  Whilst you may not have extensive sales and marketing experience, you will need to be happy to develop the skill – with appropriate support.  We are a small business where everybody makes a difference; you’ll be a key part of our consultancy team.
