You will have responsibility for building one of our specialist consumer practices (food, drinks, DIY, home & personal care, fashion & lifestyle, homeware, consumer electronics, ecommerce & retail or toys & children), contributing to strategic initiatives and goals across the business. This could be through team leadership or significant business development and fee generation.
