London Business Analyst Programme
The Business Analyst programme is a 15-24 month-long experience, designed as a deep immersion in management consulting. You will learn by doing. Analysts work with many of our practice groups, building a core consulting skills base and gaining exposure to many industries and client situations. Successful analysts transfer into our senior consulting teams.
Our promise to you:
- You will do meaningful work. We rarely work on routine analyses or process improvements.
- We let you showcase your skills—and be recognized for the value you add.
- You will grow at your own pace.
- You will work with small senior teams, and have visibility to client leadership.
What this role offers you
Initially you will be part of the Business Intelligence Centre (BIC) team. The BIC team drives the firm’s business development, and you will work closely with our consulting staff to generate lead opportunities, manage opportunity pipelines, provide company and industry research, conduct business analysis, and provide proposal support. As such, your work will be highly visible, and give you a window into the work we do and how we solve critical business challenges.
The 15-24-month program provides exposure across all AlixPartners industries and service communities. Once you gain a firm foundation in the basics, your role progresses from research and analysis, to being a member of engagement teams deployed to solve our clients’ most critical issues. The Business Analyst Programme helps you develop a core consulting skill-set (including digital languages) through formal training and on-the-job learning. Your business acumen and understanding are further developed by rotations through our industry practice areas.
LEARN CORE CONSULTING SKILLS FROM EXPERIENCED COLLEAGUES
We have developed a Consulting Acceleration Programme for you to learn the key skills needed to be a successful consultant at AlixPartners. There is core training in cash management, insolvency and due diligence—to name a few—as well as modules specially created for the Business Analysts in basic programming (Python, SQL and Tableau), the process of problem solving and softer skills such as effective communication so you can hit the ground running when you start to work on client engagement work.
You will interact with highly experienced industry experts from the beginning of your career at AlixPartners. By working in a range of industries, you will have the chance to discover which industries interest you the most. Our non-hierarchical environment will provide you with the opportunity to develop, present, and receive feedback on your ideas. Our extensive training program will also help you develop the skill set required to transfer to the consulting practice.
REWARDING CAREER PATH
You will join a merit-based culture where talented individuals can deliver memorable results for clients, become respected experts, and advance their careers in a growing company.
You will contribute meaningfully from day one and take on more responsibility over time. You will have the support of our leadership team, your career coach, mentors, peers, and others who are vested in your success.

What we look for
Working on critical issues requires a range of skills and experience. At AlixPartners, we look for candidates who have these traits:
- Entrepreneurial: Our people take ownership. They generate innovative ideas and solutions, both as individuals and as team members.

- Analytical: When faced with challenging and fast-paced situations, our people overcome obstacles to help clients solve complex problems.
Business Analyst team members should have solid experience and knowledge before joining our firm. We look to recruit those who have a Master’s degree (in any subject) and can demonstrate practical experience in a professional background.
You will be joining a supportive environment which is tailored around your development and success. We look for a natural curiosity; professionals who want to take control of this opportunity and shape their career alongside their mentors, career coaches and managers.
Your career at AlixPartners will at times be demanding, but with that will also come significant reward, and, we hope, a huge sense of pride in the work. You will be working on complex, time-sensitive engagements with very high stakes. We look for people who are comfortable with ambiguity, can operate at pace and exercise common sense in high pressure situations.
Collaboration is key at AlixPartners. We work in small teams to deliver results for our clients, often in a matter of just weeks, and so we look for strong teamwork skills.
