We help Senior Executives and General Managers to find solutions to complex strategic and operational challenges.

The past couple of years have redefined the way that organisations and individuals work, collaborate and communicate. With so much change in the way we do business, SPP took the opportunity to reflect on what it stood for as a firm and the values that bind it together as a company.

SPP is proud of its core values which underpins our team’s ethos in maintaining a thriving environment for exceptional people, and to create impactful change in the world around us.

These values include being curious – we are always looking to learn and improve the way things are done; care – we show genuine care for one another and are readily available to lend a helping hand; rigour – we are methodical and detail-oriented in helping solve complex problems for our clients and society; team play – we collaborate closely to leverage unique strengths and embrace diverse perspectives.

Your experience at SPP will have a positive, lasting impact on your personal & professional development, your networks, work ethic and your career.

“Consulting provides people with a fantastic opportunity to learn, develop, and make a difference.  SPP welcomes and encourages job applications from talented individuals who enjoy problem solving, and seek to work in a dynamic environment on a diverse range of projects.”

Recruitment Process

We recruit on a needs-basis throughout the year which sometimes involves structured recruitment rounds. We’re always looking for opportunities to work with great talent.

SPP utilises a case-study approach to interviewing. The case study is an example of a real business problem and we find it an effective way to assess a candidate’s problem-solving and communication skills, as well as their ability to relate to their peers.

It allows applicants an opportunity to demonstrate abilities critical to being a successful consultant, including:

  • Handling ambiguity
  • Structuring an approach to problem solving
  • Strong qualitative and quantitative analytical skills
  • Prioritisation of issues
  • Listening skills
  • Presence
  • Written and verbal communication
  • Demonstrating insight, influence and impact

 

The case study evaluates the candidate’s approach – not whether they get the ‘right’ answer. The case study presents problems for which there are no predetermined answers, and candidates are evaluated on their ability to deal with a problem rather than on a specific answer. Performing well in case studies typically requires a similar set of skills to those used by our consultants on a day-to-day basis.
