Expert freelance consultants

We are always looking to expand our pool of senior and junior consultants, on an associate consultant basis. These roles are diverse and unusual – find out more below. We are particularly interested in speaking to you if you have operational expertise in local and/or central government or if you have strong digital and customer experience skills.

At RedQuadrant, we practice what we preach. We operate a ‘lean’ business model and therefore directly employ only a very small team.

We deliver our projects from a strictly selected and closely supported pool of independent consultants. For clients, this means that we can offer far more flexibility and lower cost than traditional consulting firms. Our consultants enjoy the stimulating team environment, feel more in control of their personal and career development, and value the support they gain during and between projects. 

Our teams can offer an impressive arsenal of experience, support, and resources because of the combination of independent consultants with strong project, process, team, and client management – and the knowledge drawn from across our entire business.

As one of our consultants, you would join a growing team who are passionate about delivering worthwhile and sustainable change in the public sector.

RedQuadrant consultant, take a look at
our role profile:

Although we are not currently seeking, occasionally we have employed junior consultant roles (sometimes including business administration), for consulting analysts with at least one year of public sector experience Click here for more information. Updates will be made here when we are recruiting for these roles again.
