Genesis’s commitment:

  • Intellectually interesting work on projects
  • We try to do work that unlocks value 
  • Build skills, such as empirics, logic, creativity in problem-solving, teamwork and effective communication, through analytical tasks on projects 
  • Exposure to important and topical issues, key meetings and decision-makers 
  • The problems you will apply your skill and enthusiasm to are real-world challenges, usually at a senior level of decision-maker, whether in business or government, and occasionally of a high public profile

Your commitment:

  • High standards of professionalism, ethics and excellence 
  • Be committed, work hard and be prepared for every meeting, speak up and contribute intellectually; and have faith in your ability to add value
  • Help guard our professionalism, values and code of ethics
  • Be respectful and helpful to every client
  • Confidential work needs to be treated with utmost discretion
  • You will not charge dishonestly for your work and will complete a time sheet of how your day is spent, honestly
  • You will try your hardest on every project and deliver the best work you can in every instance – always looking for the ‘plus ultra’  (going further beyond)
  • Your work should always add value to the project and you should apply your own level of scrutiny to ensure accuracy and reliability
  • Communicate your interest and passions, so this can be taken into account
  • What you put in, is what you get out

2. Passionate and talented teams

Genesis’s commitment:

  • Genesis is a team experience. Learning how to be effective in a team is a critical part of your self-development
  • At Genesis you will be surrounded by energised and talented individuals who are passionate about what they are doing
  • You will work for managers who believe in and practise our values
  • You will work in teams of two to six people, each assembled for a specific project.  Outside specialists and/or client staff will often be part of your team. A project leader will assign you specific responsibilities in the team. The blend of discipline and informality in teams is key to the G: experience

Your commitment:

  • Working constructively in teams is a part of your life at Genesis – ‘make the team succeed first’
  • Intellectual debates are part of the process, to ensure the most robust ideas are put forward.  So challenge and be challenged
  • You are expected to learn to deal with conflict and disagreement directly and constructively
  • In line with our values, you are expected to contribute to the development of other people. The more you build those around you, the more highly you are valued
  • You should credit others for their efforts and celebrate their successes

3. Professional, challenging and supportive environment

Genesis’s commitment:

  • We will assess and help you build the core professional skills you need to succeed as a Genesis consultant, through on-project work and externally 
  • We commit to honestly evaluate your performance formally every six months – in this process your progress will be noted and praised and your development goals identified – these goals will be monitored and supported for the next semester
  • You will also be given constant feedback – both positive and developmental – on an informal basis
  • You will also be provided with the opportunities and channels to give upward feedback

Your commitment:

  • Your professional and personal development and growth is your responsibility
  • Give time and thought to your evaluation, and to be ‘mindful’ of your performance – how did I do on that task, how can I do better in future, what do I need to focus on and do differently, what skills do I need to learn, where do I need to work harder? The feedback you are given will be honest and supportive; you should take it in that vein and not be defensive to constructive criticism
  •  Request feedback as often as required, and especially after each project
  • Use every working chance to grow yourself
  • Take the responsibility to invest in self-education in the areas you are working in, reading articles and reports in your own time, as well as keeping up with current affairs
  • Share knowledge and skills with your colleagues
  • Request ‘mid-term chats’ with your managers every other quarter to raise areas of concern and progress

  • There is a clear career path from analyst through to partner, with regular milestones along the way. In the first two years, our priority is to ensure that you will be equipped by structured personal development to make the transition from analyst to associate
  • We also recognise that consulting is not for everyone; in the unlikely case that you cannot make the transition to associate, or beyond, we shall honestly share these views and work with you to develop other options. Whether you stay at Genesis for two years or 20, your selection and time here are intended to serve as a stamp of your quality and strength as a professional, a launching pad for many careers in many settings
