A bit about the team

The team has 9 consultants, all ranging in seniority and background, with each individual focusing on their chosen markets. The team has an autonomous style of working, allowing consultants to pursue their interests and specialisms.

In 2017 we launched our European desk which has successfully grown our footprint into France, Spain, Germany and Benelux.

  • Collaborate with the other divisions within Eames in order to seek out opportunities and develop new client relationships
