  A staggering 47 organisations have already signed up to meet consulting candidates at the 2007 Consultancy Careers Fair, taking place on 12th October at The Barbican in London.

That’s 5 more exhibitors than were confirmed at the corresponding stage last year – and highlights the resourcing issues that consultancies are continuing to face. The organisers believe this year’s rush to secure space has been so fierce because firms have wanted the security of knowing they’ve got a prime spot reserved. Hence although bookings can be made through to the end of August, most consultancies have got in early with their reservations.

Consulting employers race to secure the best stands at the 2007 Consultancy Careers Fair Director Tony Restell believes popularity amongst recruiters reflects a market in which consultancies are seeing rising client demand for their services and an increasingly acute problem in sourcing consultants for newly won assignments:

“A number of consultancies are reporting they are now running at 95%+ utilisation rates, which means they are in constant danger of being unable to resource new projects as they are won. To overcome this shortfall, consulting firms are vying to sell candidates on joining their firm rather than one of the competition – and face-to-face events such as this are one of the best ways of achieving that aim.”

Visitors to this year’s Fair will be able to meet three of the “Big 4” accountancy firms – Deloitte, Ernst & Young and KPMG; many of the world’s leading consulting brands such as Accenture, Atos Consulting, BT and IBM; plus a diverse range of exciting niche firms like Capco, Curzon, Detica, expw: consulting and Troika.

The Consultancy Careers Fair is being marketed more extensively than ever this year, to ensure firms have the chance to interact with a broad range of top-flight consulting candidates. An extensive advertising campaign in the Evening Standard was launched earlier this month, adding to promotion from the Management Consultancies Association and the Institute of Business Consulting. Vault and MCN Direct are just two more of the many marketing partners that have been signed up to maximise the reach of the 2007 event.
