Li-Yang Thean, Consultant
I chose Palladium’s graduate scheme because it allowed me to explore the different functions within digital consulting and to work closely with PE clients on projects that encourage innovative ideas and drive change.
We're an award-winning digital transformation consultancy with a global footprint. We work closely with private equity businesses and their portfolio companies to help them realise their growth ambitions and efficiencies through digital change.
As a part of the Next 15 Group, we provide the perfect combination of a young and dynamic fast-growth business coupled with the stability of a listed group. To sustain this growth, we need the best talent to join our family – people who are ready to apply themselves and drive our business forwards.
You'll work on transaction advisory projects, helping private equity firms to evaluate the digital strength, maturity, and opportunities of their target companies. You’ll understand how to assess a company’s digital operating model using data and technology, learning how to identify red flags and white spaces to grow.
You'll take part in projects such as developing new business models, executing a go-to-market strategy, redesigning the value proposition and customer experience, and more. Through these projects, you'll learn how to deliver a strategy project, becoming familiar with the tools and methods we use to create value for businesses.
You'll be involved in the delivery of projects, working closely with clients and software developers to release a live product. This could be designing and implementing a new user portal, ordering platform or CRM software. By the end of this rotation, you will have a strong grasp of the Agile delivery methodology and the requirements engineering process.
From day one, you will have the opportunity to deliver a positive, long-lasting impact to our clients and the responsibility to help shape their business and Palladium’s future.
By being involved in all areas of Palladium’s client offering, you will build the necessary foundation to approach and solve business problems analytically, creatively, and strategically. As a Graduate Analyst you'll take part in workshops, facilitate customer interviews, and analyse and visualise data.
By working alongside our clients through their digital journeys, you will learn first-hand how to design new digital strategies and business models, implement innovative products, and support private equity acquisitions from a digital perspective.
You’ll work on projects that are meaningful and have positive influence on the wider community. For example, designing software that supports the delivery of liver cancer treatment and building a digital strategy that improves the way an intellectual property law firm protects scientific advancement.
