Join our core consulting team to help to deliver some industry defining projects and raise the standard of how strategic planning and architecture is done


Hi There, We’re FromHereOn.

We are a 16 years young, global strategy and design agency helping some of the world’s largest organisations to shape & realise their ambitious goals. We've evolved from a pure-play Enterprise Architecture practice to a Business & Technical Design agency incorporating Design, Communications and Change Management helping us close the gap between strategy & execution. We help our clients to envision the future and then to make it a reality. This includes; prototyping business strategy, shaping mid-term strategic investment portfolio (across business and technology) and roadmap, architecture practice uplift and coaching delivery teams towards the target state blueprints.

Role: Senior Consultant

Location: London

Salary: Negotiable

Specialism: Technology Leader: Data Integration, Development Operations, Cloud Infrastructure, Lean Delivery Governance

As we expand our UK business, we’ve an got an opening for a senior consultant to join our core consulting team to help to deliver some industry defining projects and raise the standard of how strategic planning and architecture is done. You will be the delivery lead on projects; leading research, conducting workshops, advising clients and producing deliverables.

Our projects range from high-impact direction setting and purpose design, to long-term partnerships where we work with our clients to realise their roadmaps. You’re role is to be the main delivery lead on the project, bringing commercial and technical leadership and helping our clients to navigate their change journey.

Does this sound like you?

You’re a consultant with 8+ experience working and have acted as the primary delivery lead on a project. You’ve built trusted relationships at all levels of the organisations and are just as comfortable talking to the Chief Operating Officer as the Database Administrator.

You balance theory with practice, hold views and can demonstrate a personal architectural style based on examples and experience. You seek out root-causes to issues and enjoy applying creativity to problem solving. You are continually seeking to validate thinking through experimentation and enjoy running inexpensive/rapid tests to bust assumptions (or prove them right).
