We are a non-profit student-led consultancy business with a vested interest in the welfare of the community. Operating out of St Andrews, we work with local and national organisations and enterprises, which ensures that every client project makes a difference within the town or region.
Playfair Consultancy Group C.I.C. has grown considerably since its foundation in 2013, and in doing so we have garnered valuable consulting experience unmatched in the St Andrews student community. An increasing number of organisations are recognising the benefits of student-led consulting; we believe the fresh, unique perspectives our elite members offer to our clients as well the knowledge and skills members gain from the exemplary training, support and facilities we provide them with are what set us apart from our contemporaries.
The relationship between our members and clients is entirely mutualistic: students are able to work and interact in a real company with real outcomes, gaining a strong foundation upon which they can build future career paths, while organisations receive gainful advice and solutions from highly motivated, gifted and ardent students. This has aided over 100 students and more than 30 clients since the company’s inception, and will continue to do so, as Playfair’s already strong reputation among students grows and recruitment cycles become increasingly competitive.
