Innovative people and talent solutions for growing consultancies

Find out more

In a consulting business your people are your product; who you hire, how you organise your team, and how you resource your client engagements are key determinants of your success.

If you want to grow your consultancy you need the right people in place. New Minds can help. 

What is your talent challenge?

“We’re looking to scale but don’t want to lose our great culture or compromise on the quality of our people.”

“Recruitment and Resource Management absorb a huge amount of management time, yet we still don’t seem to be getting it right.”

“For functional roles in our business, like Marketing and HR, we really need to people who understand consultancy and the growth journey that we are on.”

“We are struggling to attract and retain good people, especially those who can sell. I’d love to know how our employee proposition compares to our competitors.”

“We are too reliant on Associates, which feels like a huge business risk. We know that we need to recruit more people on an employed basis but can’t afford to make mistakes.”

“New Minds delivered an exceptional graduate recruitment process for us. They worked tirelessly to give the candidates the best possible experience, managing it seamlessly from start to finish. The insight and advice they brought was invaluable, as well as their dedication to making the process a success. It really felt like they were part of our team and they did a brilliant job of conveying what makes Oaklin so special. A big thanks for all the support and a superb outcome.” 

Ben Parsons, Partner, Oaklin

“New Minds quickly became our partner of choice when searching for top calibre consultants – we really consider them an extension of our own team. They worked closely with us to really understand what we were looking for, and crucially the type of person that would complement our specific organisation. The whole team are a pleasure to work with and they’ve found us some fantastic consultants that are delivering great results for our clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.” 

Matthew Beattie, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Beyond FS

“New Minds have been a real catalyst to Gate One sharpening our EVP and achieving better, faster results in strategic resourcing. Their vast knowledge of the consultancy sector – while working at pace, empathy with a deft personal touch – is a rare and priceless combination in our sector. The New Minds partnership has become a huge asset to our business.” 

Simon Dennis, Partner, Gate One

“From the very first meeting where Caroline listened, questioned us and challenged our beliefs on the role we wanted to hire, it was clear that New Minds were driven to truly understand our needs rather than just “fill a role”. Throughout the whole process the team were responsive, never afraid to widen the search and provided genuine input into the decision making process.”

Kate Lander, CEO, Ivy House

“We began working with the New Minds team this year to help us expand the team proactively.  It has been a big emotional commitment but it soon became very apparent that it’s not actually a “recruitment fee” , it’s proactive consultancy support every step of the way.  Understanding our needs and specialisms in more and more detail as the process progressed, leading us proactively through the whole process with expertise and helpful guidance.  This resulted in some great candidates to consider and two new team members.”

Paul Frith, Director, Rubica

“Working with Mark from New Minds felt more like having an internal talent partner than working with an external company.  Mark made a real effort to understand our company, employee proposition, and the roles that we were looking to hire, offering challenge and advice throughout the process.  The result was that we attracted interest in the roles from some very strong candidates, filling the two positions with people who will make a real difference to the company. “
