Who are we looking for?
PMP is looking for consultants who are able to meet the required high standard and degree of excellence, adopt our values and positively convey the firm’s identity. As a profession, strategic consulting calls for total commitment and is intellectually demanding.
This is why we only recruit candidates with qualifications from prestigious universities or top-ranking engineering or business schools.
Rising to the challenge
To be successful in this business, our candidates must demonstrate a genuine appetite for solving complex issues. They must possess certain essential qualities like an analytical mind, deductive skills, the ability to be concise, as well as being able to apply rigour and methodology in moving forward. We also expect them to be quick on the uptake and in making progress, show that they have the potential to approach their work from a managerial standpoint, to eventually supervise consultants and to gradually play their part in building the business.
On the ball
The kinds of client issues we have to address are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly complex in terms of size, the number of challenges and parties they involve. To provide solutions, it is simply not enough for our consultants to be analytical, methodical or thorough – they really have to be on the ball. Having a natural curiosity about everything, the PMP consultant is highly creative. He or she knows how to think outside the box and to find solutions that are not necessarily staring him or her in the face. This calls for significant cultural awareness and openness, which our consultants cultivate within the working environment and beyond.
With client issues becoming as complex as the solutions to them, our recommendations must continue to be able to be taken on board. PMP consultants are renowned for being realistic and pragmatic. They can draw on the qualities we have mentioned, to absorb both the culture and reality of each of our clients and devise action plans and realistic, valid recommendations accordingly. Our entrepreneurial DNA is key here.
The consulting profession places a strong emphasis on interpersonal relations. We are looking for candidates who are naturally inquisitive, interested about others and their problems, who are keen to work side-by-side in partnership with clients, in close-knit teams, who are capable of taking on responsibility but also of working autonomously to move forward. Interpersonal skills, being able to listen, being understanding and able to be objective, are all essential qualities that we are looking for in a candidate.
Ready to listen
The ability to forge a partnership is something we strive to instil in ourselves on a daily basis. The exceptional connections that we interweave in-house are the very life force of PMP. As one of our partners once said, « we wanted to create a consultancy that is sound, human and truly reflects who we are.» At PMP, putting each individual’s own unique resourcefulness and qualities into the mix has paid dividends. We are looking for candidates who can totally steep themselves in this dynamic that is both enriching and reflects who we are and can share the values of compassion and humility that bind us together.
So if like us, you have the taste for entrepreneurial adventure, are determined to get the very best from yourself, have an insatiable curiosity, a calling for understanding and helping others, to discover and reveal your true calibre in an enthusiastic, caring and dynamic environment…then don’t hold back.

At PMP, the interview is an opportunity to meet you – the goal is for it to be open, rewarding and authentic.
The goodwill we advocate comes through believing in you and your ability to show us the very best of yourself – we truly believe that each individual has a potential they can express: so, make your life easier and simply tell us who you are.
What drives you, has made you proud, feel fulfilled, has made your life buzz….has led you to our door? And now you are here, what is your plan and how can we help you to achieve it ?
Becoming part of PMP, whether as a trainee, junior consultant or with someone more experience, means a lot more than simply going into management consultancy. It’s tantamount to a human adventure where you play the leading role, with the good fortune of being actively supported, to bring out the very best in yourself when dealing with clients, colleagues and even within your personal circle. The interview lays the very foundation of this process and serves to lead you towards this achievement.
It’s aim is simple: building on the transparency and mutual trust established between us, the goal is to underscore what you will go on to accomplish as a consultant with PMP – your performance is conditional on your growth and fulfilment.
This is why we will invite you to 4 to 5 interviews for a CDI position and 2 to 3 interviews to become a trainee.
In the interviews you will speak with people from varying backgrounds and with different levels of seniority, from senior consultants to partners. Along the way, you’ll be given the opportunity to meet a member of our team who is at your professional level so that you can talk together informally about our culture, how we operate and our DNA.
To improve your chances of being selected and to come across in the best possible light, it is important that you come prepared in terms of looking at a case study (brain teaser, market sizing, business case). Remember that it’s not the result but rather the journey towards it that counts. In this exercise, we expect you to display the 4 core assets, drawing from the main qualities of being a consultant :
The ability to set a framework for analysis and to be objective before undertaking it, the adoption of a methodological approach that takes a structured and exhaustive view of a given issue…
The ability to push forward in a hierarchical, secure and methodical way, in solving a problem…
Curiosity and openness
Having humility when faced by the unknown, in addressing a whole range of questions, acting without prejudice, having a strong affinity for the sector and especially with the players with whom we work, having both a general and business culture..…
Confidence and trust
The ability to put across convictions in a clear and meaningful way…
