Team Testimonials

Hear directly from our dedicated employees who contribute to our success each day.

  • I joined Barkers as a graduate, with no prior experience in consultancy or procurement. The mentorship and training I received from day one was exceptional, significantly increasing my understanding of the business landscape. I have been giving great opportunities to work with several clients and engage in compelling projects. The growth potential at Barkers is very exciting. Without hesitation, I would recommend considering a career at Barkers.

    Elian Simonini-Parker

    Graduate Consultant

  • From my first interactions with Barkers I was struck by the level of passion and expertise of the people and their commitment to social values. I have found Barkers to be a caring company that designs its assignments in a way that addresses personal needs. Their approach of deploying small teams on assignments is a great learning opportunity for even the most experienced. Barkers offers great assignments. For example, I recently developed and deployed the IT Sourcing Strategy for a Global FMCG company.

    Senior Delivery Director

  • As a recent graduate, I was initially drawn to Barkers for their commitment to ESG, social value investment, and innovative approach to achieving responsible outcomes. Since joining, I've been impressed by the investment in employee professional development and the inclusive, collaborative culture. I've already had exciting project opportunities, collaborated with diverse organisations, and grown my skills.

    Max Benton

    Consultant

  • Since embarking my position at Barkers, I have found Barkers to be an incredible company, containing a high level of expertise and skill sets to go above and beyond our clients’ expectations. For me personally, it was such a relief to work in a business that generally cares and contains so much passion for the work we deliver. Great set of people, delivering exceptional results, alongside being kind, caring and considerate for all your personal needs. Here at Barkers, you have ample of opportunity to grow or utilise your skill sets within different areas of the business.

    Rachel Freeman

    Delivery Director

  • I joined Barkers as it afforded me the ability to work in a flexible way and allowed me to spread my time over a multitude of different clients and industries. My most interesting assignment to date was the Seven Forces Strategic Collaboration. A large-scale procurement consolidation across multiple police forces which brought a range of challenges. Working at Barkers, I am able to work from home which allows me to better manage my time across personal life and other interests that I hold.

    Luke Foster

    Solutions Architect

  • I started working at Barkers immediately after University and have enjoyed my time here immensely. My colleagues were extremely welcoming, and I felt like a valued member of the team from day one, having been trusted to work on a plethora of client projects. This variety has allowed me to gain experience quickly, which, in combination with the company's investment in professional development, has accelerated my growth as a graduate, junior consultant and team member. I cannot recommend Barkers enough.
