How to engage


Applications can be sent at anytime and you will find the general details on this page. From time-to-time we have targeted searches and you can respond to them also.

Please send:

(i) a cover letter,

(ii) your CV

(iii) University transcripts

To the email address shown at the bottom of this page

We read it all. However, there are more applicants than we can respond to. One day, when we have a big HR department, we will respond to all, but in the mean-time, we will only get back if we can proceed.

Interview and case questions

You can expect between 6-7 interviews compressed over a short time-frame before presenting you with an offer. Initial interviews are usually done through video. Most interviews, and always the final ones, are done face-to-face.

The interviews all have a similar structure. First half of the interviews is used for a discussion. You can use this opportunity to get to know us better and we appreciate good questions.

Case questions account for the second half of each interview. Our objective is to better understand your problem solving and analytical approach. The case questions will have both quantitative and qualitative elements. And importantly, it is not about the “correct” answer, it is all about how you get there.

If we don’t find a mutual appreciation, at any stage, we may cancel the process at any point.

Our clients seek support for strategy and implementation in fragile and conflict- affected states.
