Creative Consultant

Sparks Grove is an experience design consultancy.
We create experiences that matter. We build things people love to use.
We’re a collective of big thinking, experience focused people. But we’ve got an unfair advantage; we’ve got a background in management consultancy as well as design and tech.

We love coming up with big ideas for our clients, but that’s just step one.
With our mix of consultants and creatives, designers and developers, technologists and product owners, we also know how to make these ideas stick in the reality of our clients’ business.

Sparks Grove is well established in the US, and we’ve just opened our first office in the UK. Our home in Holborn Circus is open, energetic and fast growing. Our high calibre people bring their whole selves to work and have a passion for building our business as well as helping our clients.
The role

As a Creative Consultant at Sparks Grove you’ll typically work as part of a small project team in our office and on client-site. You'll support the design and delivery of projects for clients, helping to solve business problems using creativity and design thinking.

We don’t believe in forcing anyone into a specific job function, so you’ll gradually shape your role based on your own interests and experience, as well as those of your team members. Consider this as a starting point. You’re going to work with our team to:
Design innovative solutions with our clients.  You’ll facilitate business discussions with our clients, building relationships and credibility while collecting and understand the challenges they’re facing. You’ll come to understand their issues, needs and requirements, before designing high quality solutions that solve problems (and look great doing it!).

Use your wit and communication skills to engage people. A good chunk of what we do is around finding ways to connect with our clients’ employees in one way or another. That might mean facilitating client meetings and workshops, or using traditional (or - more excitingly - non-traditional) communications channels to reach out and connect with people.

Grow yourself and others. We love what we do here at Sparks Grove. You will too; so much so that you’re going to spend time proactively pursuing opportunities to extend your responsibilities and developing yourself, both on client projects and internal initiatives. That might mean learning new technical skills to complete a passion project, or challenging yourself to step outside your comfort zone and take on new responsibilities. You’ll naturally seek and share knowledge with clients, peers and team members.
Visual design experience: You can produce clear and compelling visual communication, with proficiency in InDesign, Illustrator, PowerPoint etc. You’ve got a thirst to develop these skills further. You’ve got a real understanding of the principles of design, colour and typography.

Design process experience: You feel comfortable in all phases of a design project, from translating verbal ideas into visual concepts and prototypes, to developing and refining a design deliverable.

Communications skills: You’re an exceptional storyteller, with the fluency and confidence to inspire teammates and clients with human-centered rationale. You have clear points- of-view, and are comfortable articulating these to clients and colleagues.

Problem solving skills: You love a complex problem, and you're able to quickly understand and break it down into simpler chunks. You take a people-centred approach to problem solving.  

Creativity: You're flexible and open-minded, using both sides of your brain to understand and communicate information in original and exciting ways. You love coming up with new and exciting ways to help our clients.


Consulting experience is a real plus, but not a requirement. It would be great if you have some relevant experience in a management consultancy role, with skills in project management, transformational change, strategy or process design
