About Us

We’re Nine Feet Tall…….and growing! We can help do the same for your career.

We understand how crucial it is to make the right move at this stage in your career. You need more than a job description - You want to know what we stand for and whether Nine Feet Tall is a place where you can put down roots.

We’re a management consultancy that’s helped our customers deliver over £100m of value in the past sixteen years. Our core mission is to take the pain out of change, and to ease the transition to new ways of working.

We use our core values to guide our decision making - being open and honest with our clients, accountable for the work that we do, always striving for excellence and delivering with real passion.

About You

Your career to date will have given you a solid background in leading business or IT transformation projects or managing change.

You’ll already know that you’re a highly competent Project or Change Manager. You may be working in a consultancy at the moment and you’ve hit a ‘glass ceiling’. Or perhaps you have always wondered about the benefits of working in a consulting environment, enjoying the variety of projects and sectors that you can operate in.

More than anything, you’ll be looking to rapidly increase your skills and experience. We’ll work with you to improve your commercial awareness, helping you to feel comfortable in networking with customers, leading and motivating others – and being a problem solver within our business.

The Role

At Principal Consultant level, we would expect for you to develop quickly within our business.

When you start, you’ll likely be deployed onto a customer’s site, with our support, to play a key role in helping them to deliver a critical project. This will help you to understand the Nine Feet Tall ways of working and to learn from Consultants who can help you attune to our culture and practices.

You’ll also pick up internal projects, which could touch on any part of our growing business.

The other key aspect to this role is mentoring. We work in a non-hierarchical way, doing away with traditional line management and having mentors in place instead. At Principal level, you’ll work with one or two of our Consultants, providing advice and guidance on their current and future development.

Why Apply?

We deliver all the capabilities of large consultancy with far less jargon and a lot more personality.

The last few years have been tough for everyone, but we stood strong. In 2023 we’re growing taller again. Our culture is something we’re really proud of and it could be something that you get to benefit from.

Our learning and development programme is extensive, meaning that you’ll get to continue your learning whilst passing on your experience at the same time.

As an employer, we’re proud to be truly flexible. We work hard to help our team find balance in their working and personal lives. That’s why we’re happy to consider applicants on either a full-time or a flexible working (P/T 4 days per week or flexi-hours) basis. You’ll be home-based in the first instance, with flexibility to come our office in Bath 1-2 times per month for training and for our regular company days that play a big role in our cohesive team culture.


Competitive salary plus twice-yearly bonus and a generous benefits package

Nine Feet Tall is an equal opportunities employer. We know that the principles of diversity, equality and inclusion are key to being a successful and dynamic business - with a team which is engaged and where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is happy to be themselves.
