Training, mentoring and peer support are critical to how we get things done and this feeds into our mantra that Grosvenor is a safe pair of hands. This starts with our commitment to ensure each member of our consulting team are that safe pair of hands to their client.
As a member of our team, you'll be held accountable for the quality of your work. In turn we provide a supportive culture where it's easy for you to put your hand up and find the support you need.
We value strongly a culture where everyone pitches in, picks up their load and invests back into the firm to share their knowledge and expertise.
Work life balance for Grosvenor is not just a nice set of words. It has real meaning. Unlike many consulting firms, we don't work our people into the ground.
We know we need people at their best to deliver the best, ensuring people aren't drained of energy and have time to do the things they love outside of work is very important to us.
We have a super talented and fun bunch of people here at Grosvenor. To keep them happy, healthy and kicking goals in their professional and personal lives, we’re proud to offer the following to our employees.
We know that people prefer different ways of working. Some have commitments outside of work to manage, some regularly need to work from home rather than the office. We have a workplace flexibility policy that respects the fact that the type of people we employ take responsibility for ensuring they contribute and meet the needs to the business.
We know it can be an amazing and unpredictable roller coaster for families welcoming a new child into the world. So we're proud to offer 12 weeks paid leave for Primary Carers and 6 weeks paid leave for Partners of Primary Carers to ensure all our staff are retained and feel loved, independent of their unique circumstances.
There’s something special about working in a company in which all employees are bright, energetic, focused and pleasant people to be around. Throughout the year we take breaks from our busy working lives to celebrate major events and enjoy each other’s company.
To take the pressure off during busy times, boost morale and reduce stress, we find that it’s the little things that can make a bit of difference to an employee’s day such as:

Work on interesting, challenging projects with professional, diligent, honest, fun and down to earth people at a consulting firm with real career progression.
Grosvenor Performance Group (www.grosvenorpg.com.au) is an employee-owned and growing management consulting firm with offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane. We are a firm that genuinely cares about our staff and offers real work life flexibility. We are proud to be Great Places to Work Certified, with our results some 20 points ahead of the average firm in our industry.
For over 25 years we have helped our private and public sector clients find fearless and practical solutions to complex problems. We help our clients achieve the necessary results in the right way – by adding real value. We are proud of our Net Promoter Score which is currently +59.
The way we treat our staff makes us stand apart from our competitors. Long before COVID, we had a workplace flexibility policy that respects individual preferences and enables people to work in different ways. During COVID, none of our employees were made redundant, we had no cuts to pay and no forced leave. Instead, we have grown the business about 20% this year.
We’re looking for at least two people to join our team at our Consultant, Senior Consultant and or Manager levels.
To give some insights, our consulting personnel typically work in project teams of 2-4 people and across multiple projects simultaneously.
At the Consultant level you will play an active role in the successful delivery of client projects by supporting the project team as required. This includes completing tasks such as research and analysis and supporting client consultation and the development of deliverables.
As a Senior Consultant you become responsible for delivering elements of the client projects and owning some of the client relationship.
At the Manager level, you are responsible for the client relationship and the success of each of your client projects.
Projects are typically oversighted by a Senior Manager (or higher) who is ultimately accountable for the success of the project. All consulting staff are responsible for educating and nurturing less experience staff.
We offer interesting and engaging work and ongoing progression at your own pace as you work through our career development framework. You will work and learn directly from business owners and senior leaders and have the opportunity to enhance your already diverse skillset.
Our people come from all walks of life, but everyone is the real deal, with a glass-half-full approach to life. The right candidate will have exceptional soft skills, be highly motivated and self-driven, be professional, resilient, flexible, honest and have a desire to be a proactive force for good.
We need people who work without a hierarchy, be accountable for key parts of projects and thrive under the expectation that their contribution is valued and will make a meaningful difference.
