At WPG, we work in partnership with our clients to address their business needs and challenge them to think differently. We offer bespoke solutions that are both research-led and practical, to boost effectiveness, efficiency and fairness.

The role offers the potential for development and progression within a growing and well respected occupational psychology consultancy, while providing the opportunity to have a significant impact on client outcomes.

We have offices in Derby and London, with flexibility to work from home. Currently, all our team are working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some UK-travel should be expected in future, in line with client requirements.

The experience and skills you’ll need:

  • A proven track record (minimum 3-4 years’ experience post-Masters) in a relevant consultancy or internal role.

  • To balance multiple priorities, plan ahead and re-prioritise work plans according to colleague and client needs.
  • To be results focussed with attention to detail.
  • To be competent with SPSS and Microsoft packages.
  • To be in the process of registering as an Occupational Psychologist with the BPS / HCPC (desirable).
