Commercialisation Consultants

About Us

***Important Update***

Dear Applicants, we’re grateful for your interest in the Commercialisation Consultant position. The application process is now closed, but we encourage you to revisit our careers page for future opportunities. 

Human Engine is a Financial Times top-ranked management consultancy with specialisms in strategy, change, digital, commercial and projects.

We started in 2018 because we believed the public sector deserved better from consulting – more personal, more human and more knowledgeable of the realities of modern public services.  All consulting firms say they’re different – with a founding team that came from within the public sector, the Human Engine difference is that we’ve seen it, done it and been on the sharp end of change.

We are a small but quickly growing company that works with clients in local government, central government, the NHS, charitable and regulatory sectors.  In fact, quickly growing is an understatement – we’re doubling the size of our consulting workforce and looking for exceptionally talented and passionate people to join us.

But business growth is just a means to an end. What matters most to us is creating a company culture where everyone can thrive and, in doing so, deliver outstanding outcomes with clients.  A lot of companies say this – but with no shareholders to keep happy and no investors to pay back, we’re all about creating a culture where people are happy, fulfilled and can excel at work.  Whatever the nature of the project, our mission is to help organisations and individuals to do the best work of their lives.

About the Roles

8/10 local authorities say that they’d have to cut services or raise taxes without their commercial income. Almost every council we work with is looking to maximise its commercial revenues in a sustainable way – and this creates opportunities for experienced consultants to join our award-winning team.

We’re looking for people who have a passion for public sector commercialisation, with experience of increasing and diversifying the income streams of public authorities. This could include maximising the income from public services like leisure and culture, setting up traded services teams with schools and other authorities, or establishing publicly-owned trading companies.

The vast majority of our work in this area takes place with our local government clients – so it’s essential that applicants have knowledge and experience of commercialisation in a local government environment. This experience may come from working directly in the sector or from working closely with clients on related projects in consulting roles.

Consultants up to £45k

As a Consultant, you’ll play a critical role in delivering outstanding work for our clients on a day-to-day basis. You’ll have gained experience in a related role, demonstrated an exceptional aptitude for learning and be ready for your next challenge. This role might suit someone with 2-3 years’ experience in a consulting or public sector environment.

Senior Consultants up to £65k

Senior Consultants bring deep subject matter expertise and plenty of experience to help our clients achieve things they can’t do alone. At this level, you’ll be a seasoned change agent who will lead on projects, often being the client’s most senior regular contact. You’ll play a vital role as a subject matter expert on larger programmes – and our approach to matrix working means you’ll sometimes be leading these programmes, too.

What We Offer

  • Competitive salary, in line with your experience and the bands set out above

  • Bonus and incentives for outstanding contributions, such as winning new or additional work

  • Fast career progression – you’ll be promoted as soon as you’re ready

  • Company pension scheme

  • 28 days paid holiday plus UK bank holidays

  • Flexible working – home-based and with flexible hours when not on client site

  • Regular, all expenses paid team get-togethers – both business and social

  • Work that makes a difference, with clients who give us consistently great feedback

  • Community-based company culture, with high degrees of responsibility, collaboration and support

  • Culture of learning and development with plenty of training, coaching and development opportunities
