When I interviewed Andy Macdonald, CEO of Consilio, after one of Consilio’s acquisitions, he was keen to emphasise that buying successful companies was not the only way to expand a business. Certainly, buying the right company will usually bring a wave of good new people into the business, but it also encouraged applications from elsewhere. As Andy Macdonald put it, companies which are seen to be successful attract successful staff.
Consilio always has a list of open opportunities on its careers page. Two in particular caught my eye. One is for an eDiscovery Project Manager in Hong Kong. The other is for the Head of UK Client Experience for Consilio’s Self-Service Business Units based in London.
Consilio has expanded its Hong Kong presence considerably since I was last there, consistent with Consilio’s quest, led by client demand, to be able to provide a full service across the AsiaPac region. The requirements include a willingness to travel both domestically and internationally. The London role is primarily to serve UK clients, but extends to supporting non-UK clients as required.
Earlier this year, I interviewed Consilio’s James MacGregor, Managing Director at Consilio in London, about Consilio’s worldwide ambitions and the steps already taken to fulfil them. The interview serves as a good introduction to the company’s global presence.
