Whether you are a student looking for an internship, a graduate looking for a first job, a medic looking to transition to the business world, or a seasoned professional looking for a new challenge, we offer a unique career opportunity in an intellectually stimulating and fast-paced environment. We would like to hear from you if you have:

  • Inclusivity: We are an equal opportunity employer who values diversity and inclusion as drivers of business and societal success.
  • Passion: Our work is driven by the belief that it helps to achieve better outcomes for healthcare patients and practitioners.

For students starting your careers, we offer internship opportunities throughout the year to accommodate individual circumstances:

  • 3-4 weeks for doctors to get a feel for the consulting world during your time off
  • 1-2 months during the summer break for university students with a background in healthcare
  • 3-9 months longer term internships as part of studies or prospecting career changes

This training continues during your career and is tailored to different levels.

Dr Iham Kasem

Iham completed his medical degree at the University of Cambridge in addition to obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Medical and Natural Sciences from the same university.
"While working as a junior doctor, I decided to explore a career in business. I came across Candesic and its excellent reputation in strategy, growth, and commercial due diligence consulting.

I started with an internship and had the privilege to work on a major project with a diverse team, including those with medical, scientific, or business backgrounds. Upon completing my internship, the decision to transition to a full-time Analyst role at Candesic was natural and straightforward. The boutique nature of Candesic and its commitment to delivering excellent outcomes are evident on a daily basis. The team gets along very well, fostering a real sense of camaraderie. I’ve found everyone to be incredibly supportive and willing to help since joining the firm.

Candesic has proven to be a great place to work, and the environment encourages personal development. The opportunities to learn from my colleagues and to lead my own pieces of work have been excellent. I would strongly encourage anyone considering applying to go for it!"
