In recent years, Alfa has consistently been ranked in the ‘Best Companies’ and ‘Top Companies for graduates to work for’ surveys. We have also held the 'Investors in People' award since 2005 and recently requalified achieving silver status.
We need our people to work hard but that doesn’t necessarily mean long hours. We only recruit people who we think will get on with each other, so the atmosphere is collaborative and friendly. If you are interested in activities outside of work, there are groups to join such as football, surfing and dodgeball. As well as project milestone incentive trips, you will also get to spend time with the whole organisation every couple of months at our company meetings which involve presentations in the morning and great activities in the afternoon. Furthermore we usually have a trip overseas for our Annual Conference which is always something to look forward to!
Starting salary in 2016 is £40,000. From day one, new joiners will be enrolled on our benefits schemes, which include private health insurance and access to a private GP, worldwide travel insurance, life assurance, income protection, interest-free loans, 25 days’ annual leave, pension, access to a city gym and a laptop.
Our junior consultants are recruited from graduates of the highest calibre across all disciplines. New recruits are given an intensive induction into areas such as the asset finance industry, software development and consultancy skills, before being assigned to a project where they can put their training into practice. Supervised at all times by more experienced consultants, recent joiners will find that the open culture means they also have easy access to senior managers and directors for discussion and guidance. With some help from their colleagues, our newest consultants will be helping to change the way businesses work from the very start of their career.
Alfa is established in the UK, US, Asia-Pacific and throughout Europe. As well as working on projects based in London or the surrounding area, you will sometimes be expected to work in European locations during the working week. We also see a steady flow of UK consultants on secondment further afield, so if this sounds like your kind of thing, we can make that happen too.
Employers constantly tell us that there is nothing that impresses them more than a graduate who has properly researched the company and really knows why they want to work there - so make sure that you tell them in your application that you have read-up all about them on TheJobCrowd and so you really know what makes that company great and why they are right for you. It will help your application, we promise!
