Career opportunities in Gartner Consulting comprise the three paths below. These tracks reflect the capabilities and skills required to deliver high-quality service to our clients and provide a common global language for career development. Each includes aspects of the others — what differs is the major focus and principal metrics.
Business Development associates focus on business strategy and growth, as well as the health and management of the consulting practice. Typical responsibilities include client management, account planning, development and sales. These associates expand the consulting business by proactively identifying and developing new clients.
Associates also develop capabilities for managing the business, including business strategies and business planning. Fostering an environment that attracts and retains high-performing associates, and ensuring organizational capability, also fall within this career path.
Client Service associates focus on delivering high-quality solutions that exceed client expectations. Associates prepare to serve as program or engagement managers for major, complex initiatives and/or key clients. They develop capabilities for building strong project teams, managing project performance and overseeing deliverable quality, budgets and risk management. They become responsible for managing relationships with senior-level client management.
Subject-Matter Expert associates provide Gartner with significant depth in a business or technical capability or industry vertical. They are recognized by peers and clients as thought leaders in their specialty areas.
These associates support the sales process by developing innovative solutions for addressing client needs. They may deliver solutions in their specialty areas or mentor associates on project teams. Subject-Matter Experts develop the capabilities to play a critical role in the development of solution strategies, methodologies and intellectual capital. They support business development by overseeing the creation of reusable intellectual property and ensuring organizational capability through knowledge sharing. In addition, they enhance delivery by ensuring deliverable quality.
Seventy percent of the Fortune 1000 and 76% of the Global 500 enterprises are Gartner clients. That, coupled with a worldwide client network spanning 85 countries, ensures a global context to our consultants' daily work.
