The work we do

We enable the infrastructure industry to make better decisions under increasingly uncertain conditions. We use data science techniques and technology solutions to help our clients deliver a better service to their customers. 

Amey Strategic Consulting & Technology is the UK’s leading asset analytics and technology consultancy for infrastructure. In the past five years, we’ve grown a team of 100 people, achieving and maintaining a fast-paced start-up mentality within a large infrastructure operator. We keep diversity at the heart of our hiring practices, with active support for team members from the LGBT community, increasing women in our industry, and promoting ethnic diversity. We recognise the potential of individuals regardless of gender, sexuality and social background and challenge the current industry bias at every opportunity. Our small team culture is supported by regular team socials.

 
Our cross-discipline team gives us a unique perspective on capital investment, operational expenditure, how assets create business value and how organisations carry and manage risk. We use this knowledge analytically and develop open source and proprietary software to provide insightful evidence for decision makers. We do this at all levels within an organisation, from boardroom down to end users up, using technology to enable our understanding of complex, interconnected systems that make up a business, allowing us to create a line of sight between corporate strategy and asset operations. Our clients include Heathrow Airport, National Grid, United Utilities, Severn Trent Water, Network Rail, London Underground and New York MTA. This gives us the opportunity to take on and solve the toughest problems for vital strategic infrastructure organisations.

What are we looking for?

We will work with you to harness what you have learnt, the skills you’ve developed and help you to grow them; and we will fast-track your CV by providing you with significant responsibility and challenges from day one with the world’s top infrastructure clients.  Our small-team culture will ensure you learn from those around you and are involved in a variety of work at all levels.  All this is supported by targeted training to support your technical and consulting skills. The range of skills in the team will gear you up for senior consultancy and management roles in the future.  

Our salaries are competitive and benchmarked against the Big Four consultancies. We are hiring at all levels, and we will map you to our Talent Framework during the interview process:

•Consultant – typically graduate up to five years’ experience
•Senior Consultant – three to ten years’ experience or relevant academic achievements
•Principal Consultant – eight years or more experience

Your knowledge, credibility and persuasive style will help our clients through the cultural change of asset management transformation programmes such as ISO55001 certification and other related standards
