Mentoring

Teneo Consulting runs a mentoring scheme to ensure that you can seek advice and guidance from more experienced members of our team. Mentors are generally a grade or two more senior than you and can provide practical insight into what the next step entails and how to get there.

In addition, all Teneo Consulting employees are assigned a coach, who is a member of the senior management team, to provide career guidance and support your personal and professional development. Coaches are approached for advice or support on project allocations and are happy to offer advice taking into account your case experience, strengths and targeted areas of development.

More informally, the nature of Teneo means that there is always someone who will be happy to help.

Training

Teneo Consulting offers a comprehensive programme of external and internal training throughout your career. This is mostly focused on your local office, but there are increasing opportunities for joint training with colleagues from across the global Teneo business.

New joiners cover the basics of the consulting ‘tool kit‘ in a week-long induction course that includes seminar style learning, presenting and research assignments. Quarterly training days then allow all consultants to progress through an internal curriculum of courses covering a broad range of soft and technical skills which supplement on-the-job learning. Senior Consultants and Managers will have access to personal training budgets to tailor courses to their specific needs.

In addition to this, both hard and soft skills are supplemented with specialist external training. This includes for example accounting and financial statements analysis, and presentation skills.

Work/life balance

Teneo Consulting understands people have lives away from their desks. Of course, all consulting is project-driven and at times can be intense, but we do a lot to mitigate the worst. Teneo Managers set realistic deadlines, make sure projects are resourced appropriately, and ensure the visibility of upcoming workloads. We monitor individual workloads and intervene to ensure the demands of the job are sustainable for individuals.

Outside the office

The Teneo Consulting culture is as strong outside the office as it is at work. We are a varied and dynamic team and we benefit from our colleagues bringing their interests to the office. Teneo staff are encouraged to establish teams or activities that are open to the rest of the firm. A calendar of organised and impromptu events, both social and sporting, ensures life at Teneo thrives outside of the office, and staff members form bonds that go beyond their latest project team. There are multiple team building events held every year, including overseas weekends, summer parties, and ad hoc social events in our local offices.

Travel

Our projects are often office based, allowing for more time spent with family and friends, rather than regular weeks on the road.

However, as we have a significant amount of international work, there are times when projects are undertaken in a foreign country, or require travelling to meet our clients. Wherever possible, we try and accommodate the preferences of our people – whether it is staff that wish to be do more office-based projects, or those that wish to see the world.

At Teneo, we recognise the value that diversity brings to our business, both internally and to our clients. We strive to achieve a culture of inclusion and opportunity that harnesses the professional and personal diversity of our colleagues, and allows everyone to prosper regardless of background, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.

We are committed to making Teneo a welcoming environment for all, and a place where we can learn from each other’s experiences, backgrounds, and skills. Equally, we know that the fresh perspectives and creativity of diverse and dynamic teams allow our clients to derive maximum benefit from our work.

Teneo is actively engaged in encouraging equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion through a number of different avenues within the firm. We want to celebrate differences and give everyone a voice ensuring that all staff are accepted, without exception, in the workplace.

We frequently explore new and innovative approaches to training, and provide coaching, mentoring and support for all to achieve progression based on merit. This includes both internal and external initiatives, for example, in our London office ‘Women in Consulting’ events that are designed to challenge some of the perceptions of a career in consulting.
