About Gartner Consulting:

Gartner Consulting has no downstream commitments or associations with suppliers of ICT services that would prejudice our unbiased assessments.

The IT Security and Risk practice is an important part of Gartner’s current success. To support our future ambitions, we are seeking a talented consultant to take a key role in the development of this sector.

Gartner’s strategy, which you will be implementing, is to focus on a small number of clients, with whom we will build strategic relationships, based on consulting capabilities in world-class areas of expertise:

  • IT Strategy / Assessment
  • Benchmarking
  • IT Cost Optimization
  • Applications Modernization (including ERP)
  • Infrastructure Modernization
  • Sourcing
  • IT Security.

Led by our Managing Partners, we develop sustained relationships with select clients by selling and delivering high impact engagements focused on our client’s most important IT-driven business initiatives, using both repeatable and custom solutions based on distinctive capabilities and a high degree of industry relevance in our top talent engagement teams.

Gartner engagements are typically high-value, strategic engagements, ranging from 1 month or more and up to $1m+. Gartner is not transaction oriented; we concentrate on our overall relationship with a client, not selling a large transaction. Teams are formed from solution experts, with industry expertise where appropriate, often, but not exclusively drawn from our North American consulting group. Team sizes are usually up to three to four consultants, and very seldom over ten.  Gartner consultants enjoy high visibility with clients, and internally. Growth opportunities are many.  Please visit our website at
