We’re Nine Feet Tall…….and growing! We can help do the same for your career.
We understand how crucial it is to make the right move at this stage in your career. You need more than a job description - You want to know what we stand for and whether Nine Feet Tall is a place where you can put down roots.
Based in Bath, we’re a management consultancy that’s helped our customers deliver over £100m of value in the past fifteen years.
Our core mission is to take the pain out of change, and to ease the transition to new ways of working.
We use our core values to guide our decision making - being open and honest with our clients, accountable for the work that we do, always striving for excellence and delivering with real passion.
Your career to date will have given you a solid background in leading IT systems implementations or managing change.
You’ll already know that you’re a highly competent Project or Change Manager. You may be working in a consultancy at the moment and you’ll have hit a ‘glass ceiling’. You might have always wondered about the benefits of working in consulting environment, enjoying the variety of projects and sectors that you can operate in.
More than anything, you’ll be looking to increase your skills and experience. We’ll work with you to improve your commercial awareness, helping you to feel comfortable in networking with customers, leading and motivating others – and being a problem solver within our business.
As part of your development, we would expect you to start thinking about sectors where you might want to start developing new client relationships. With the support of our Partners, Mentors and Marketing teams, we’ll then start helping you build an approach to market that enables you to develop this area of interest.
At Principal Consultant level, we would expect, with our support, for you to develop quickly within our business.
When you start, you can expect that you’ll be quickly deployed onto a customer’s site to play a key role in helping them to deliver a critical project. This will help you to understand the Nine Feet Tall ways of working and to learn from Consultants who can help you attune to our culture and practices.
You’ll also pick up internal projects, which could touch on any part of our growing business.
The other key aspect to this role is mentoring. We work in a non-hierarchical way, doing away with traditional line management and having mentors in place instead. At Principal level, you’ll work with one or two of our Consultants, providing advice and guidance on their current and future development.
We deliver all the capabilities of large consultancy with far less jargon and a lot more personality.
Off the back of our most successful year in 2019, we’re going to grow taller again in 2020. Our culture is something we’re really proud of and it could be something that you get to benefit from.
Our learning and development programme is extensive, meaning that you’ll get to continue your learning whilst passing on your experience at the same time.
As an employer, we’re proud to be flexible and modern and we work hard to help our team find balance in their working and personal lives. We want people to bring their personalities to work with them and we actively support an environment that encourages development and learning.
