The global careers site for management consultants,, has today published a new and completely reworked edition of its comprehensive careers guide. More than 20,000 copies are expected to be distributed - both electronically and in hardback - as candidates and consulting clients alike turn to it as a source of insight on consulting firms active in the UK market.

Over 100 pages are devoted to a series of career editorials that provide prospective candidates with all the information needed to progress one's candidacy as a potential management consultancy hire. Broad topics covered include:

>> A career in consulting – is it for you?

>> The current hiring climate

>> Landing a job in a consulting firm

>> Moving from industry to consulting, and from consulting to industry

The remainder of the 400+ page book is then a directory of consulting firms active in the UK market, with over 380 employers listed and 189 employers profiled. It's a reflection of this that the guide is titled "The Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms" as this comprehensive directory is what marks the guide out from other careers resources available both on and offline.

"Consulting candidates, prospective clients and service providers to the consultancy sector will find standardised profile information about each organisation," commented the guide's editor Tony Restell. "Alongside the globally recognised consulting brands are a huge array of smaller niche consultancies, making this the definitive place to research prospective employers and consulting service providers. Our thanks go to everyone who has been involved in the publication of this second edition, most notably our sponsors Huntswood and our publishers Kingsham Press."

The guide is free to download in PDF format, with hardback copies also available from October onwards. Readers may access their copy via the following link:
