Who are we?
Eden McCallum is redefining management consulting. Founded by two senior female consultants in 2000, we support clients to resolve their most pressing issues of strategy, operations and organisation. What makes Eden McCallum unique is that all our projects are delivered by carefully crafted hybrid teams of experienced independent consultants, supported by our in-house analysts and led by our in-house partners. This combination of tailored experience, analytical rigor, and relationship continuity brings faster, deeper insight and lasting impact to our clients.
Our 500+ independent consultants are experienced, with backgrounds from leading global consulting firms as well as track records in industry. Extraordinarily committed because they opt into every project, our consultants focus on delivery, released from the internal demands of a traditional consulting business. Our in-house team scopes and oversees all our projects: we listen and respond, providing constructive challenge, unrestricted to one methodology. Our structure enables us to shape teams with only the most relevant experience and fit. And, supported by our low-cost base, we focus on delivering great value.
A role as analyst
Our analysts are employed full-time, based out of our London or Amsterdam office. A unique development opportunity in consulting, the analyst role at Eden McCallum provides apprenticeship and support from the very best independent consultants, learning from their deep and varied experience across consulting and industry, and significant collaboration with clients, while playing a meaningful role in a leading and innovative consulting firm. You will work closely with our independent consultants and will be exposed to a variety of industry sectors and functions, obtaining a broad insight into the key strategic issues leading companies are facing.
Our structured training programme will equip you with a ‘toolkit’ that enables you to rapidly add value to our clients from the very start. This begins with a three-week induction in London full of training delivered by both internal as well as external facilitators. Subsequent regular training sessions throughout the analyst programme are provided, which focus on developing you as a consultant in addition to promoting personal development. A key element of the analyst role is coaching and on-the-job development, both on internal assignments and client-based projects. You will receive regular informal and formal feedback and coaching throughout and at the end of each project and assignment. In addition, you will be assigned a mentor who will oversee your development throughout your career with us. While working as an analyst, you will be expected to travel as required for periods when working on client engagements. Working in small teams, you will be given responsibility for delivering elements of our client and internal projects, as well as being expected to contribute to the wider problem-solving effort.
Our analysts have the opportunity to stay with Eden McCallum for a number of years, taking on more senior roles as they progress and develop their consulting skills. After an initial 2 years, strong performers are promoted, with the strongest performers achieving a further promotion after an additional 2-3 years. In each role, you are encouraged to stretch yourself, further broadening and deepening your consulting ‘toolkit’. Your time with us will help you identify and better understand the industries and functions that you’re excited about pursuing more deeply. Your mentor, and the wider group of partners and staff, will help you grow and will support you in planning and transitioning to your next career opportunity. Recent leavers have had the opportunity to join other strategy or specialist consultancies, (strategy) departments within industry, start-ups and private equity firms.

Mijn voorkeur ging uit naar een kleiner kantoor waarbij ik wel aan opdrachten wilde werken van hoog niveau. Naar mijn idee is Eden McCallum dan snel de beste optie. Door het grote netwerk aan zeer ervaren externe consultants met achtergronden bij kantoren als; McKinsey, Bain & BCG etc. kunnen wij erg veel expertise in huis halen en daarmee projecten doen voor de grootste bedrijven.
Deze pool bestaat namelijk uit ongeveer 2500 consultants. Het interne team, waar ons Analyst Programme onderdeel van is, bestaat uit ongeveer 35 consultants en is erg hecht. Die combinatie was precies waar ik naar opzoek was.
