Job Description

Elevate is looking to hire an experienced Consultant on a 12- month contract in Canary Wharf London.

The right candidate will have expertise in leading offshoring projects, preferably in a Financial Services context.

You will be working directly with one of our key clients and will be expected to work autonomously under their light supervision to run an offshoring project in their legal function.  As such you will be highly numerate with solid experience in offshoring projects in a highly demanding professional services sector with exceptional stakeholder management skills. Experience of having offshored legal and compliance activities a nice bonus but not critical.

You Might be the Right Person If you:

  • Have led offshoring projects either with a consultancy or internal change function of a major corporation - from strategy through to implementation.
  • Have a robust training in consulting techniques, whether gained at a major consulting firm or at an in-house change team.
  • Enjoy a culture of rapid change.
  • Are willing to travel for client assignments.
  • You will enjoy working in a fast moving company and are capable of forming strong relationships with colleagues all around the world.

Skills for success:

  • Strong communicator, personable and collaborative.
  • Comfortable working autonomously often in highly ambiguous environments but knows when to escalate.
  • Team player and natural networker.
  • Reliable, meets deadlines and anticipates problems.
  • Takes personal ownership of self-improvement.


  • 8+ years in Offshoring projects.
  • Prior consulting experience with a major consulting firm a plus.
  • Have autonomously led project delivery and project teams.
  • Ideally will have working knowledge of core legal practice areas within a legal department.
  • Process re-engineering experience.
  • Business case development experience.
  • Solid consulting experience is key but could have come from large in-house (financial services preferred) or consulting background originally.

Technical Skills:

  • Exceptional Excel and Microsoft Office skills.
  • Process mapping training.
  • Project management training.


  • Bachelors Degree.
