Fun, inclusive and exceptional are the core values which Ascend operates under. These values brought me through the door and have since paved the way for what has been a tremendous experience working as a consultant.   

At Ascend, we are a tight-knit team that aims to create the most possible value for our clients whilst simultaneously supporting and developing each other. In practice, this means that we have a genuine impact on the client’s side and that this impact is achieved in a fun and fulfilling manner for all parties involved. This combination of fun and fulfilment is something I cherish and value highly. 

There are, of course, several consultancy firms that enable a fun and inclusive work environment, but I argue that Ascend stands out. The way in which exceptional client deliveries and joyful culture are woven into the fabric of Ascend and all those who work here is something which I consider to be unique. Further on, it means going to work and meeting the colleagues is something I look forward to at the start of every day. 

During my time at Ascend, I primarily worked within the area of Commercial Excellence. This has enabled me to indulge in topics ranging from pricing and new commercial offerings to sustainability and organizational change. The way in which I am constantly enabled and encouraged to broaden my scope and push my development is something I value a great deal. It is also something which applies to all those who work at Ascend, which in turn leads to an ever-evolving team. 

At the end of the day, the story of Ascend is quite simple as I see it. So, if you are searching for a collection of people with exceptional capabilities and who are simultaneously a blast to work with, you needn’t look any further.
