The benefits of working with Alpha

We invest in developing your talent. We run tailored training for all levels, which supports industry-leading qualifications like Prince 2, IMC and CFA.

Your progress is based on ability not time. We don’t have promotion quotas, there is no ‘time-at-level’ requirement, no ‘up-or-out’ policy; just a plain and simple meritocracy where everyone progresses as their abilities and results dictate.

You’ll work with great people. Our projects are complex and require a range of skillsets to solve the challenges we face. You’ll collaborate with people who have a range of expertise – which will help develop yours.

You share in our success. We have a share ownership scheme that allows you to buy in to our success whilst our profit share scheme gets great feedback from staff.


You’ll have fun. Alpha is a lively place to work. There are many organised activities and the sort of energetic social life you’d expect of a high-end consulting firm.
