Pop up Placement


We are award-winning experts in organisation change, helping to build better businesses across the world.  Q5 was set up to be nimble enough to work across different sectors and locations, and create results based on the specific needs of our clients. We are pleased to offer a 5/6 month placement within our Pop up Consulting team. 

Pop Up Consulting was launched at the start of the C19 pandemic in March 2020 to help charities and small businesses navigate the impact of the pandemic and beyond. We offer 1-2 day pro bono consulting interventions to help address strategic and operational challenges including strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, leadership development, change management and organisational design.  

The purpose of this role is to support with all Q5’s Pop Up activities by both helping with Pop Up workshops from start to finish, and supporting how the initiative is managed and developed. The student will be encouraged to help further develop and shape the offer, bringing ideas, for example, around new ways to design, run and measure the impact of the Pop Up workshops / interventions. No ideas are off the table!

The student will have the opportunity to work with multiple different organisations (e.g. charities, not-for-profits, SMEs), across a broad range of social issues (e.g. food waste, education, mental health, poverty, sustainability), giving them exposure to a variety of organisational challenges across different sectors. This role would suit someone with an interest in both consulting and an interest in social impact and the third sector (e.g. charities, not-for-profits). 

The research analyst will report to Olivia Taylor as the Pop Up Consulting Lead.
