Senior Consultants


Senior Consultants are experienced professionals in their field of work and act as mentors, facilitators and project managers to Junior Consultants working on commercial and volunteer projects for real clients through our Bright Red Triangle Consultancy.

Senior Consultants manage each client project leading a Junior Consultant or a team of Junior Consultants who complete the work at hand under your supervision. Clients include businesses within the private sector, social enterprises, charities, and government organisations locally and on occasion internationally.

Projects are ad hoc, not guaranteed and are dependent on the client’s needs. The nature of projects you would manage as a Senior Consultant vary substantially depending on your field of expertise, your interests and your availability. Our aim is to be able to provide clients with a pool of talented experts from a wide range of sectors thus contributing to our unique offer and your own professional development.
