At WPG, we work in partnership with our clients, to address their business needs and challenge them to think differently.

We offer bespoke and evidence-based solutions that are both research-led and practical, to boost effectiveness, efficiency and fairness. Our work in high-stakes settings has real impact on policy and practice; we’re very passionate about what we do.

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.

  • Writing reports and executive summaries, to reach a range of audiences.
  • Supporting business development, by writing project proposals, scoping deliverables and proposing workable solutions in partnership with clients.
  • Dissemination of work through client conferences, presentations and publications.

We have office space in Derby and London, with flexibility to work from home. Some UK-travel should be expected, 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.
  • Experience in project management, and specifically, leading a range of projects concurrently.
  • Experience in the area of selection and assessment, and specifically in the development and evaluation of bespoke psychometric tests (desirable).
  • To work flexibly and co-operatively with colleagues and clients, communicating effectively and building positive relationships to achieve objectives.
  • To work independently at pace, show initiative and transfer learning from one setting to another.
  • 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 (ideally, including the use of syntax) and Microsoft packages.
