Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting) helps asset finance companies improve their business performance by implementing our software - ALFA Systems - and applying our wide-ranging experience of the industry. Blue-chip clients such as Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, Societe Generale and Toyota Financial Services have reaped the benefits of Alfa's finest assets: our people. We are extremely proud of our track record of successful projects, a testament to the skills, experience and knowledge of our consultants who develop organically through the company from graduate joiner to senior manager.
Alfa is established in the UK, US, Asia-Pacific and throughout Europe. As well as working on projects based in London or the surrounding area, you will sometimes be expected to work in European locations during the working week. We also see a steady flow of UK consultants on secondment further afield, so if this sounds like your kind of thing, we can make that happen too.

"Having previously carried out Java development in an academic setting, I joined Alfa with a mind to continue growing technically whilst working with like-minded people. Since then, I have enjoyed carrying out developments to tailor Alfa’s enterprise software to suit the business requirements of a major American client, and a technically challenging internal project to further improve the quality and capability of our software product."

"I started out at Alfa learning Java, having never had experience in the language. This led me to a development role where I carried out challenging and engaging work developing our flagship software for a key American client. I have since moved to a client facing role with a new Alfa client, where I regularly travel to Dublin in order to implement and interface our software with other enterprise systems."
Training & Profiles
We look for people who are bright, inquisitive, technically minded, and fun to work with. Induction and pre-project training is around 10 weeks so new joiners need to be ready to take on lots of learning from the start of their career. If you have a 2:1 or better and As and Bs at A Level, we know you are bright. Add to that motivation to learn about technology and asset finance and you have a successful Alfa employee!
New recruits are given an intensive induction into areas such as the asset finance industry, software development and consultancy skills, before being assigned to a project where they can put their training into practice. With some help from their colleagues, our newest consultants will be helping to change the way businesses work from the very start of their career.
Your initial training period will be delivered by your new colleagues from junior to senior. You'll then be working on a client site or based in the London office, and your first role will typically involve software development. During a project, as well as the design and development of the software, we also need to modify business processes to ensure the client is working as effectively as possible, test that everything works, transfer all the data from the old system to ALFA, and provide support through the go-live process and into the future. During your career, you will spend time working in a variety of roles in these areas.
