Careers at GreySpark
GreySpark is a professional services firm. Our product is our people: our insights, our expertise, our passion and our dedication.
Armed with a clear vision for the future of GreySpark, our Partners lead by example. They offer their significant knowledge and experience to all our professionals and are a source of support and guidance for self-starters.
The best employees will never stop learning and improving. That is why we empower you to take ownership of client projects – you will develop the expertise necessary to carve out your own niche within a fast-paced, fast growing organization. You will immediately become a part of the team team, engaging with diverse clients and working on projects across a wide variety of service offerings. And the more you learn, the more you will give and grow. By helping craft proprietary GreySpark research based on your experience and insight, you will contribute to our growing Capital Markets Intelligence research centre.
Working at GreySpark is a learning experience. Our professionals are on a constant learning curve and are always developing and deepening their industry, business and technical skills. We provide both formal and informal skills development opportunities, including mentoring, workshops and on-the-job training. Our consultants also have the opportunity to engage with our Capital Markets Intelligence Practice to develop their research and knowledge-sharing capabilities.
We work in a target-driven and results-focused environment designed to challenge our professionals to push the limits of what’s possible. We recognise their accomplishments and reward them for successful delivery, through promotion and significant bonuses on top of an attractive remuneration package.
As a GreySpark employee you can expect early responsibility and rapid career progression commensurate with your efforts, skills and entrepreneurial nous. We offer a clearly defined career path and apply a meritocratic process in promoting the next tranches of leaders in our growing firm.
The Analyst Consultant’s primary function is to develop their consulting skills by working on client engagements.
A Senior Consultant is typically a seasoned professional with considerable experience in their chosen domain. Senior Consultants will also be required to act as mentors or team leaders to Analysts, and are expected to confidently engage with clients with minimal supervision.
A Lead Consultant is a subject matter expert with extensive experience in their chosen domain. Lead Consultants will be thought leaders in their field and will act as a go-to person for their field of expertise. They will typically spearhead a service offering to clients around their area of expertise.
A Managing Consultant has full line management responsibility for a team, or practice within the firm. He or she is responsible for career and skills development within the practice, and will be expected to lead client engagements without supervision.
Principal Consultants are seasoned at both client delivery, as well as pre-sales consulting. They will also be capable managers and will typically be accountable for a profit centre within the company.
Partner is the highest level within the company. Partners will participate in the strategic management of the firm, and will be instrumental in setting corporate strategy, defining direction and growing the GreySpark franchise.
GreySpark is its people. Therefore, the quality of our recruitment is core to our business. We have high hiring standards and a thorough recruitment process that consists of four stages.
This is conducted by our HR team as an initial, informal telephone conversation where we aim to establish a mutual willingness to proceed to the formal interview stage. It usually takes 20-30 minutes.
This first formal interview is typically conducted by a GreySpark Business Development Manager. The primary purpose of the interview is to ascertain your consulting, relationship-building and communications skills. This face-to-face interview takes 45 minutes to an hour. At this point, depending on your skill-set, you may be asked to write a test either at our premises or at your leisure via our online testing web-site.
At this second, more technically rigorous interview, you will be interviewed by a senior member of our consulting team. The purpose of this session is for us to assess your domain skills in your chosen area of expertise. In some cases, we may require candidates to engage in a role play exercise where we are then better able to measure their skills and experience.
This is the final stage of the hiring process. It is a one hour interview with a Partner and is the basis upon which the final hiring decision is made.
Consulting is a challenging career. If this is your chosen path, and capital markets is the industry for you, GreySpark is the company that can help to achieve your career ambitions.
