Back to careers |

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

We’re looking for experienced programme and project managers to join our growing team.  Our approach blends expert technical understanding of project management principles with a deep understanding of our clients’ needs and the practical reality of getting things done, often in complex partnership environments.  We’ve supported organisations to deliver multi-million pound community grant schemes to complete major regeneration programmes.

We’re looking for people to join this part of the business at Consultant and Senior Consultant levels.  You might have expertise in setting up PMOs and transformation programmes or experience of hands-on delivery of projects.  We’re open to applications from a range of backgrounds – you might have previous consulting experience or have worked in project management or transformation roles in the public, private or charities sectors.  What’s most important is that you can demonstrate outstanding project management rigour and real desire to learn in order to help our clients do the best work of their lives.

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
