    I was there at the beginning! After a Chemistry MSc from Cambridge, 4 years of consulting and a year in Industry with BT, I started as an independent consultant with a limited company called JMAN Group in 2010. Today, we are a genuine Group, with a great team that is growing quickly. We now work across many sectors and with different types of clients, with one goal in mind – using whatever tools at our disposal to solve clients’ problems.

    FARZANA ALI Client Service Executive

    Graduating with a BSc in Mathematics with Business Management from Queen Mary University, I completed an internship with JMAN Group. During my internship I worked as an analyst developing a time sheeting system for both in-house and client use. After completing university in 2016 I returned to JMAN Group, which led to working predominantly for Imitor Graphica. I have loved every minute of it!

    RORY PRESTON Consultant

    My undergraduate degree was at Cambridge University, where I read Economics. In my final year, while involved with the University Hockey Club, I was put in contact with JMAN Group, who were interested in sponsoring the Varsity Match. Having read about the company I decided it was just the sort of thing I was interested in, and took up a summer internship after finishing my finals. I was immediately given an interesting project, in trying to work out how a sports governing body might better use the data available to it to hit their participation targets set by Sports England. Having enjoyed the early responsibility that a small company brings, I decided to join permanently after completing a Masters in Edinburgh. My Masters was in Statistics and Operational Research, in the School of Mathematics, and I hope to bring the same quantitative tools and approach required to my work at JMAN.

    FRASER SYM Consultant

    I discovered my interest for Science at Manchester Grammar School and explored this further whilst studying Natural Sciences (Physics and Chemistry) at The University of Nottingham. Then I turned my eye to business with an MPhil in Management at Cambridge University Judge Business School. During the summers I partook in various internships in the Consulting, Investment Banking and Marketing sectors. My final internship was at JMAN Group during summer 2015 which resulted in the role I am in today.

Testimonials From Our Team

  • My internship lasted eight weeks, starting just after graduation in July 2015. I was trusted with the day-to-day running of an exciting project for a UK retailer, determining which items to stock in its stores. This included coordinating members of our big-data team, plenty of analysis using excel, and even a client meeting in my second week. I learned a huge amount in that short time, and most importantly did so in a fun environment where I felt truly valued.

    Lloyd Hilton JMAN Consulting, Consultant
  • I interned at JMAN Consultancy for six weeks during the summer of 2014, after finishing my final year of university. I hadn’t done any internships before (having worked on a farm the previous two summers!), and although I knew I would be doing a Masters the following year, had no plans for employment afterwards. I hugely enjoyed my six weeks, working on a project looking at how a sports governing body could better use the data available to it to achieve its participation targets set by Sports England. I was given instant responsibility for the project, and found it hugely rewarding. Having been offered a job at the end of the internship, I decided to take it and here I am!
