About Us

STL Partners is a small specialist research and consulting firm which has been at the forefront of the field of business model innovation and analysis in the Telecoms-Media-Technology (TMT) sector since 2006. In particular, the Telco 2.0 Initiative has focused on the opportunities for growth through new telecoms business models. STL Partners offers TMT companies highly creative research and consulting strategy support to help them identify and realise growth opportunities. Clients include Vodafone, AT&T, Google, Cisco, World Economic Forum among others. The Company is based in Highbury in London and operates globally. We are growing fast and undertaking an increasing number of research and consulting assignments where we need to expand our skills base and capabilities. These include:

  1. Strategy projects. e.g. identifying the threats and opportunities posed by over-the-top services to telecoms operators
  2. Marketing and proposition projects. e.g. identifying and developing major breakthrough propositions for operators seeking to achieve future sustainable growth.
  3. Bespoke research projects. e.g. (


We are looking for a small number of Interns wishing to explore a career in strategy consulting to work with our fast-growing team in Central London. Duration is 2-3 months starting immediately. As a member of the small-knit team you’ll work alongside highly experienced professionals on real projects and assist in producing quality work to exacting standards and timescales. You’ll get hands-on experience, and the chance to make a contribution from the start.

To get a flavour of the role, here are quotes from one of our summer 2014 and summer 2015 LSE interns, both of whom have now taken up permanent consulting positions with us:

“I can only speak highly of my time spent at STL. Obtaining exposure to a range of different projects and gaining an insight into consulting from individuals at the top of their game was everything and more that I wanted from the internship. I was given a great amount of individual responsibility and felt that I was really listened to when I asked to accomplish certain goals during my time there. I would highly recommend the internship to anyone interested in research or consulting."  

“From Day 1, the experience I gained from my internship at STL was truly insightful; I had the opportunity to interact with senior clients and participate in a variety of assignments. The global nature of the projects that STL is involved in means that you could be working with companies from the US to the Middle East to South East Asia. It’s a great environment too where colleagues are supportive and keen to make sure interns are an integral part of the team.”  


  • Very strong academic background (minimum 3 A’s at A level),  Russell Group university (minimum 2:1 in your first degree), with a strong technical and business aptitude
  • An interest in (and ideally prior work experience in) strategy consulting or research (not necessarily in telecoms but this would be preferable)
  • Well-developed analytical skills – comfortable thinking through problems and good at structuring answers
  • Strong motivation to operate and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment
  • Excellent interpersonal skills

Preference will be given to students wishing to develop a career in management consulting. Interns who demonstrate the right skills set and have the potential to develop their careers in our organisation will be considered for permanent opportunities arising over the coming 12 months.
