Central Government Opportunities


Following the continued growth of Baringa, we are excited to be building our Central Government practice and we are looking for amazing consultants who will thrive with us as we grow.

It’s evident that UK government faces major challenges over the coming years, with the pressure to deliver improved services at more efficient cost, leverage process, technology and customer insights from the private sector, not to mention the changes that Brexit will bring. If you are excited about working alongside our clients to solve these challenges then we could be what you are looking for.

At Baringa we are determined to ensure we give you the career progression that you want, at the pace you are after. As a business, we are constantly evolving to meet our clients’ needs – and we want you to do that too.

Our market leading growth, combined with ambitious expansion plans, mean that we can continue to offer our employees the progression, development and diverse range of client engagements they are looking for.

We believe that diversity is paramount to driving creativity, innovation and value for our clients and for our people. All applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, age, or social background.

What will you be doing?

Our consultants work with government departments and regulators to support the largest and most complex transformation programmes in the UK. These programmes are crucial in enabling government to improve outcomes for citizens, businesses and for the UK. We bring energy, expertise and passion to deliver innovative, pragmatic solutions, which use our cross-industry knowledge and deep functional expertise. As a Baringa consultant, you could be involved in: 

  • Assessing and modelling the market impact of new policies
