A BRIGHT IDEA in 1960 led to three Cambridge graduates setting up a technology consultancy that specialises in “helping companies achieve the seemingly impossible”. Cambridge Consultants is now a subsidiary of the global engineering group Altran, and has a UK workforce of 489.
Under the leadership of chief executive Alan Richardson, the Cambridge-based firm develops products for clients ranging from FTSE100 corporations to tech start-ups. A senior engineer typically makes about £40,000 a year and colleagues can nominate each other for extraordinary effort, with the chance to win a cash reward.
