Industry Newcomer.

We're here to help

Whether you're a graduate looking to kick start your career, or an experienced professional looking for a change of direction the Institute of Consulting can equip you with the knowledge and skills to succeed.


Each year hundreds of consultants take up membership of the IC. Not only does membership provide a professional status and independent endorsement of your ability to offer consultancy services and business advice, but it equips you with resources to learn new skills, understand best practice and win new business. Membership is also the only way to raise your profile through the National Consultants' Register, a key resource for buyers of consultancy services.
