What we are looking for

Consultants (graduates or mid-career), summer interns, and short-term placements will need to show:

Technical ability: a strong understanding of the fundamental principles of their discipline, and the ability to apply them to unfamiliar problems, as evidenced by an exceptional academic track record. Wide curiosity and interest and the ability to quickly learn about new areas of technology are also vital.

Problem solving: the ability to think in a clear and structured manner about complex topics, and take a creative approach to exploring new solutions. Consultants must be comfortable with the level of ambiguity and uncertainty inherent in front-end innovation.

Client-facing skills: excellent communication skills in written and spoken English, and an interest in the work of our clients. Consultants are expected to be able and willing to travel internationally.

Team skills: the ability to engage well with a team, and contribute to complex technical discussions. Consultants will take responsibility for their own work and time, and need to be proactive, show attention to detail, and work to deadlines.


Our business support teams in operational support, e.g. IT, Finance, HR and Marketing, are best in class, just like our consultants. Together, we are a close-knit team aligned to support our core consulting work. Our collaborative leadership style allows people to play to their strengths and provide different perspectives, and we’re looking forward to hearing yours. Our employees are:

  1. friendly, flexible and supportive
  2. excellent communicators
  3. proactive and positive, demonstrating a can-do attitude
  4. observant, with strong attention to detail
  5. fast learners
  6. highly skilled in their specialisms
  7. professional in all interactions

Innovia is committed to creating a supportive and inclusive workplace.
