Career paths for management consultants

In our company, we value career depth over career height.

Our two consulting tracks

At CPCS, consultants have access to a range of career opportunities. They can move between two consulting tracks to develop a deep technical expertise and broaden their skills in areas like project and people management. Some call this the T-shape concept.

At all times, both tracks interact together across our markets and areas of practice. This gives consultants full exposure to our multidisciplinary team’s wealth of knowledge and specialties.

Market-focused teams: in this track, management consultants bring market-relevant familiarity, sector knowledge as well as client and project management skills to grow our company’s operations globally, including in Africa, UK and Europe, Canada and the United States.

Technical practice: in this track, technical specialists and teams use their deep expertise and knowledge in one of our areas of practice, which are transportation, power, public-private partnerships and infrastructure analytics.i
