What is it like to work for JDX Consulting

Leadership
Leadership
From the start of an employees’ journey with JDX the Senior Management Team is heavily involved throughout, from performing interviews and hosting training and induction courses to joining the “bootcamp graduation” drinks. Their involvement continues throughout staff’s career, with management ensuring that at all levels employees feel involved and valued. Once consultants have completed their initial training and have progressed to a Senior Consultant they are enrolled into the Prodigy 35 training modules. These modules focus on developing consultants into the future leaders of the company, as JDX believe in promoting from within. Training sessions are run by Senior Management, as well as external trainers. JDX has two leaders, the co-founders JD and Tim. Both are energetic and passionate leaders who place high importance on socialising and building strong relationships within the company. JD is the driving force behind a number of innovative approaches to communicating important messages, such as his use of video content for the strategy night dinner. These videos subsequently provide a useful resource for recruitment and business development. Tim and JD believe that sport is extremely important in relation to developing skills in the workplace and general wellbeing, so actively encourage team participation in various sporting events, such as football and netball. They routinely organise companywide events such as the annual ski-trip to France, the Christmas party and they also provide tickets to Wimbledon and the Rugby World Cup.

Ongoing personal development is paramount to the success of JDX. The JDX Training Academy provides a foundation for the training of consultants from the day they join and the company supplement formal training with ongoing coaching, counselling and mentoring. Alongside this they support employee development in a myriad of ways. JDX hold several “fireside chats” throughout the year which involve an industry expert coming into their offices for the evening to talk through their careers and offer advice. Each consultant is assigned a Line Manager, who they meet on a monthly basis where they will be offered mentoring and coaching if needed. Consultants are also encouraged to attend any seminars and conferences which interest them, particularly if they are in between projects. Finally, the company have Prodigy35, which their consultants will enrol in once they have been promoted to a senior consultant. P35 is an innovative way in which JDX train their consultants, all through using external and internal industry experts to develop their sales and managerial skills to eventually become the future leaders of JDX.

JDX has consultants based on multiple client sites, meaning it is hugely important that they facilitate company-wide interaction in many different ways. As a result of this the company hold a ‘Townhall’ every six weeks for all employees to attend. This is where JDX’s performance and strategy are discussed, outstanding individual performances are acknowledged by Management and awards are also given. It is also a chance for new consultants to integrate with the JDX family. The SMT hold a number of initiatives throughout the year, including a quarterly ‘beers n ideas’ forum. This gives employees a chance to put forward any ideas on how to further improve JDX. The best ideas are collated and presented to the MD’s for consideration. The SSCC (Sports, Social and Charity Committee) is a peer-run committee dedicated to providing funding for events proposed by employees. Recent examples include Dodgeball, Salsa Dancing and Wine Tasting. The company also host a reoccurring movie night and poker tournaments throughout the year, which encourages healthy, if not ruthless, competition!
