Shaun, Junior Consultant
Shaun is from York, studied Psychology at the University of Northumbria, finishing with a Masters in Organisational Psychology at the University of Leeds where he focused on the application of the psychological literature to solve business problems.
As a Junior Consultant, he’s supporting consultants to design and deliver talent management solutions, working with senior stakeholders in global brands.
“Even in my first few weeks at Chemistry, I was not only working with the senior team supporting research, analysis of data and building PowerPoint decks, learning everything I could, but I was attending key meetings with global brands and talking to senior stakeholders. It’s very cool to be part of the big picture.
What I see is us working for some of the biggest brands in the world. The solutions that we provide allow organisations to improve their hiring by only assessing people on traits that correlate with high performance for their business. There is always pressure but being involved in the transformation of these huge organisations is incredible.
I knew I needed to work in London for the consulting career opportunities I wanted to pursue. I started my career at a recruitment consultancy where I focussed on recruiting Human Capital Consultants. Here I got to meet a lot of really great people and learned so much about the Talent Management market and definitely helped me to get to where I am today.
Now? I was just thinking this morning, for the first time, I’m really happy where I am, I am happy to crack on. Before it was always about the next step, it feels really nice to be enjoying the present.”
