Young MCA Events

We provide a variety of event formats to ensure we cover key issues within the industry, as well as core consulting skill workshops with expert speakers.

OUR KEY GOALS

YOUNG MCA COMMITTEE STRUCTURE

The Young MCA is led by the Young MCA Executive Committee and the Young MCA Council. The Council is made up of representatives from MCA member firms and meets 5 times a year. The Council provides feedback on industry initiatives to ensure that young consultants are represented at an industry wide level.

The Executive Committee is led by their Chair and consists of volunteer Vice-Chairs who lead their individual workstreams:

  • Events (panel discussions, skill workshops, networking, etc.)
  • Networks & Universities
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Regions (activity outside of London)
  • School Leavers (representing consultants who entered the industry via alternative routes)

PROMOTING CONSULTING AS A CAREER TO YOUNG PEOPLE

Members of the Young MCA also get involved with numerous University engagements across the UK promoting consulting as a profession. The Young MCA appears regularly on panels, discussing the life of a consultant in front of students interested in future career opportunities in the industry. We have strong relationships with several London based business schools and universities, but also attend events in Manchester and Birmingham.

YOUNG MCA IN THE REGIONS

MCA members have offices and consultants based across the country and the Young MCA has now established regional networks in the UK. So far we have hosted events and university sessions in Bristol, Manchester, and Birmingham, with the aim of ensuring our young consultants have access to the Young MCA network wherever they’re based. If you frequently work outside of London and would like to keep tabs on events in your area, please get in touch with misty.hammond@mca.org.uk.

The network also provides opportunities for consultants to get involved with corporate social responsibility work with teams built across our member firms. With over 150 hours of volunteered time on projects in 2018 our young consultants provide valuable improvements and advice to non-profits all whilst developing their own skills and networking with peers.
