Consulting firms with the best employer branding in Europe

Employers that distinguish themselves as a great workplace are able to attract and hire the best talent. For consulting firms anywhere in the world and in Europe, this is a crucial differentiator in winning the war for talent. Meet the consulting industry's most attractive employers in Europe.

Building a strong employer brand requires a close interplay between the marketing, brand management, human resource and recruitment teams of consulting firms. With a unique and winning employer branding and employee value proposition, consultancies can not only attract the best candidates, but also improve the retention of consultants.

Consultancy.org monitors 500,000+ employer branding data points per year on our platform – behavioural and survey data from consultants, peers, young professionals and graduates. Combining this with external insights from dozens of benchmarks, surveys and data from employer review platforms and social media, our unique database enables us to present the industry’s most in-demand employers, globally and in Europe.

The ranking includes all consulting firms in this list for which we have sufficient data. The dataset is refreshed by the hour, meaning that lists are near real-time.
