The question is confusing. What exactly are you asking

Exits: Corp Dev Integration Team or Tech Strategy Work. Possible to get a raise but tbh I think it would be very tough. I’m an M&A EM and the best I’ve been able to find is a match in my current comp.

You could join an M&A Biz Tech group as a Dir, Sr Dir, etc. Lots of big tech companies have these roles and they'll shell out the comp

What is your total comp? There should be a good bump when you move to industry unless you're very high on the band or take a lower level offer. I'm moving to an integration role for ~250k TC. Director level should make ~100k more

~300TC, sounds like there is some room for improvement but not much

I have an offer for £55K as a senior consultant at a boutique firm in London (supply chain consulting). 10-15% bonus and £5K relocation since I'll be moving from North America. Good or bad offer? I have 5.5 YOE total, 2 in consulting

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
