Associates at Strategy& are typically high achievers with a Master’s degree and exceptional academic record, who are fluent in both Dutch and English.
Our Associate hires come from a variety of degree disciplines and backgrounds. They have international experience, participated in extra-curricular activities and demonstrated the energy, commitment and drive necessary to succeed at Strategy&.
As an Associate, you will perform a wide variety of tasks. On any given project you might be asked to analyze a company’s costs to identify savings, build a business case to assess a potential opportunity, construct a presentation to illustrate solutions to client executives, conduct interviews to gather data, or research companies to gain external market perspectives. Associates also contribute to other activities in the office; they are often at the forefront of organizing social activities, get involved in pro bono work and attend recruiting events. This by no means defines the limits of what you may be doing – the profiles in the ‘Our people’ section provide a glance at personal experiences of consultants at Strategy&.

The wide array of backgrounds and diversity among our people is highly valued, as this is one of the secrets underlying the power of our teamwork. If you want to realize your full potential while making a difference for clients and society, Strategy& is the place for you.

Important note: Please apply to ONE specific job posting only.
The interview process at PwC's Strategy& Amsterdam is generally conducted over two rounds. Both rounds consist of three interviews of one hour each. All interviews involve time dedicated to your motivation, background and experiences. We will ask questions about leadership, team skills and other relevant experiences, and we will test your motivation for strategy consulting in general and for Strategy& specific. A case discussion will follow, where we try to understand how you go about analyzing real-world business problems. We also try to reserve the last 5-10 minutes for any questions you may have.
A case is a scenario modelled after a real business situation or management problem. It is usually based on a past client engagement that the interviewer has worked on. The case portion of the interview is an opportunity for you to show us how you solve complex business problems - perhaps in an industry you are unfamiliar with- and how you structure your thoughts on these issues.
The case discussion makes up about half of the interview. The best preparation is to practice many case scenarios in which you talk a partner through the case by generating defensible hypotheses and solutions.
Case interview preparation
We have all been there... that moment during an interview when you are asked to solve a case. Even when you are completely unfamiliar with the subject matter, you can still “crack the case”!
