Working at Mason Advisory
We recognise the need to offer our clients more than just an understanding of technology, we need to be commercially aware and sensitive to the needs of the wider business too.
Technology is playing a bigger role in the day to day running of businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our mission is one of helping our clients to get the best possible value out of technology, rather than using technology for technology's sake.
Ideally, we are looking for experienced IT professionals from consulting, IT services or blue chip end-client backgrounds. Our clients work in fast-paced, high stakes industries, and as such , client engagements are often challenging, but varied.
Mason Advisory is an IT consultancy that does things differently, providing experts in IT who match technology know-how with commercial and business sense. We launched in 2014, but the team has a 20-year heritage in providing independent, pragmatic advice and support to finance, life sciences, retail, FMCG, emergency services, health, energy, water, education, government and transport.Read job description Send your CV
