  A staggering 42 organisations have already signed up to meet consulting candidates at the 2006 Management Consultancy Careers Fair, taking place on 13th October at The Barbican in London.
Consulting-Times E-zine
This puts the line-up of recruiters on track to exceed 60 organisations, compared with the 41 organisations that exhibited at last year’s event. Over 3,000 people are expected to attend the Fair, with 500+ recruiters and representatives of consulting firms on hand to meet with candidates on the day.

Visitors to this year’s Fair will be able to meet three of the “Big 4” firms (Deloitte, Ernst & Young and KPMG), numerous fast-growing major consulting brands (including EDS Consulting Services, BearingPoint and BT Global Consulting) as well as a diverse range of exciting niche consulting firms. BLT, four-times winner of Top-Consultant’s award for “Best Management Consultancy Recruitment Firm”, will also be exhibiting – as will event partners the Management Consultancies Association and the Institute of Management Consultancy. Director Tony Restell believes this year’s event is proving so popular because of rising client demand for consulting services and an increasingly acute problem in sourcing consultants for newly won assignments:

”MCA member firms recently reported that consulting headcount rose 27% in the last year. When staff turnover is factored in, it is clear that recruitment of top talent has become the number one strategic priority for consultancies. This explains why firms have been so quick in signing up for the 2006 fair and also highlights what a great opportunity this one-day event will be for anyone thinking of applying to consulting firms later this year.”

A Management Consultancy Special will run in the Evening Standard on 26th September, to maximise the candidate reach of the Fair and ensure maximum publicity for those consulting firms with big recruitment targets to hit in 2006. Copies will also be distributed to all those attending the Fair on 13th October.

“Having ensured the success of the event through this wonderful line-up of firms, our main concern now is to ensure that readers wishing to attend do not face the same disappointment as last year – when there were simply not enough entry tickets to go around. Although The Barbican offers us a greater capacity than last year’s Olympia event, we nevertheless expect the event to be oversubscribed. Hence we recommend candidates register for a place sooner rather than later.”

Last year’s event was oversubscribed and hundreds of candidates found themselves unable to secure an entry pass in the days leading up to the Fair.

”There were unconfirmed reports of readers selling their passes on eBay and that is a situation we’re hoping to avoid this year” added Restell. Registrations for the Fair – which is targeted at experienced hires rather than university students – can now be made via the dedicated careers fair website at:
