We’re always looking.
Find out how we can help now.
Barker Wentworth has a strong team of experienced management and technology consultants with more than 25 years of professional experience including senior executive roles and directorships.
Our usual method of recruitment is via word of mouth referral, however if you can add exceptional value to our team and business then please submit a proposal.
Barker Wentworth has been established for over 10 years, and in that time, has successfully helped clients identify and unlock previously unrealised value within their business.
The key to the success of our company and our clients lay in our ability to provide advice and solutions that are client specific, strategic in nature and well supported through practical delivery.
Due to the early success in pairing the right type of client with great team members, Barker Wentworth soon developed a reputation for finding out-of-the-square solutions and uncovering opportunities and values beyond the scope of engagement.
As success built, Barker Wentworth matured from a management consulting firm to become a multi-disciplinary Advisory and Delivery firm that is still supported today by its founding partners.
