Coworkers Working Together

Are you ready to join the team?

Full-time Associate 
Energy Transition, Net Zero and Sustainability practice
London

A high-impact role helping our clients accelerate the energy transition  

 

About Ampersand

We are purpose-led management consultants on a mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable, regenerative economy. We help our clients embed sustainability in their business strategy to improve their market position and drive long-term value.  

Our core values of courage, impact and collaboration ensure that we can provide high-impact advisory support with a flexible and pragmatic results-oriented approach. 

We work with carbon-intensive industries, including energy, commercial real estate (with deep expertise in data centres) and broader professional services.  

 

What makes us stand out as an excellent place to work? 

We’re not your everyday consulting firm. We’re a destination for top consulting talent, frustrated with large/typical consultancy ways. Here’s what we pride ourselves on: 

  • Genuine and open culture, home-grown by a diverse, small team whereby your input feeds the development of the firm.  

  • Work-life balance - we’re sensible and don’t work weekends or late evenings. We believe people do their best work when they stay fresh. 

  • Impact for everyone - all our team can take the lead be that with clients, writing blog posts to capture our expertise or helping us scale our internal business structures/processes. 

  • We’re all entrepreneurs - because we are small and relatively newly formed, we’re still building - so we love people who want to get stuck in and take ownership. You can truly build your own platform here as there’s so much white space for growth. 

  • There’s no hierarchy - our analysts and consultants are our future partners. 

  • We believe in work being enjoyable and having fun as a team.  

  • We’re passionate about sustainability and truly believe in our mission 

 

The role

Given the fast growth and exposure to the senior team, Associates will play a key role in growing the business. They will get the opportunity to work with C-Level clients on high-impact projects. They will also contribute to Ampersand’s thought leadership and visibility on ESG, sustainability, energy and Net Zero. 

This opportunity would suit candidates with 3+ years of consulting experience and knowledge of the energy transition and/or net zero as well as a good strategic understanding of sustainability. 

 

Specific responsibilities will include:  

  • Advising clients on sustainability strategy, business cases and execution  

  • Supervising the work and development of junior team members 

  • Managing all aspects of the client relationship from project framing to delivery 

  • Contributing to the firm’s thought leadership, developing new ideas and research supporting service innovation
