I have heard that London offices of some consulting firms are taking on less people, as they are waiting to see what happens with Brexit. Does anyhone have any information on what offices are gorwing fastest? The aim of this questions is to apply to the offices in which I have the highest chance of getting an interview.I can apply to English-language, French-language and Russian-language offices.

Many thanks!

Hi,

I can confirm your statement for the UK. As someone who worked in Dubai before, I can tell you that the Middle East offices are still hiring significant numbers of consultants. To give you an idea, 50 new hires started in one of the MBB companies in Dubai last week. The work permit usually is not an issue to obtain given the high need for expats.

Best,

Deniz

Hi,

You should also have a work permit to work there. The regions booming last years were:

  • Middle East
  • Australia

I have noticed no perceptible difference in Bain London's recruitment this year, and our office growth target hasn't been adjusted for Brexit. So I can't speak for other firms, but at least for Bain hiring is still in full swing.
