Are you analytical and detail driven? Do you thrive in a challenge? If you answered yes, you may have what it takes to be a consultant.

Our graduate consultants are valued members of the team and are involved throughout all aspects of the business from day one– from internal projects to delivering for our clients.

The i3Works graduate scheme is designed to rapidly build knowledge of consultancy within our service lines of project management, project controls, business change and transformation, and much more through industry-recognised qualifications and hands-on experience over a two-year period.

Our graduate scheme is offered at two tiers: Undergraduate and PhD. If you are highly motivated, resilient, and driven, and have (or are predicted to achieve) a 2:1 or above undergraduate degree, or any postgraduate degree, or PhD in any discipline, we want to hear from you.
