Consultants get broad client exposure to strategic and operational challenges across diverse industries, developing specialized content expertise along the way. Some find a focus area they are excited about early in their careers, and others do so over several years. Either way, you'll have constant opportunities to gain expertise and hone your problem-solving abilities.
Many join us with limited professional experience straight from University undergraduate and graduate programs. Outstanding students of any discipline are welcome to apply. We look for integrity, maturity, initiative, intuition, creativity - and a strong background in problem solving and analytical skills. Successful candidates will combine intellectual curiosity and self-confidence with entrepreneurship and a desire to contribute fully to shaping the firm's future.
Several also join us as Senior Consultants after a few years of work experience post-University. Those who have gained two to three years professional experience are able to pair their industry knowledge with consulting skills. Similar to entry-level Consultants, we hire with the expectation of progression to Partnership. Based on availability, we recruit for these positions throughout the year. Successful candidates should have demonstrated success in their academic careers, as well as a proven track record professionally.
We invite you to learn more about our practices and the industries we serve. No matter your entry point, you will receive increased responsibility and evolve along the spectrum.
