  • MBA or other graduate degree in engineering, economics or other quantitative-focused field

  • Entrepreneurial mindset and strong stakeholder management
  • Interpersonal effectiveness and leadership potential
  • Strong communication, writing and problem solving skills


You’ll work with our McKinsey Energy Insights team and will be based in our Amsterdam office. 

McKinsey Energy Insights, a specialist data and analytics unit, provides distinctive analysis, insights, and support to energy players. We offer services along the oil and gas value chain, including exploration and production, refining and marketing, natural gas, trading and oil field services, and equipment. McKinsey Energy Insights dedicated specialists apply proprietary tools and methodologies and a data-driven approach. With our strong ties with McKinsey’s oil and gas consulting practice and access to the expertise of the wider McKinsey network, our research and analysis yield knowledge available nowhere else.


You will deliver market analyses and forecasts for both internal and external clients and develop bespoke insights in the refining/petrochemical sector, often in a client facing consulting role

In this role, you will contribute to daily problem solving, structuring, modeling and analytic support for our global downstream tools and related analyses. You will gather the information necessary to develop these tools and to synthesize your findings into targeted, McKinsey-formatted products. These products may be in the form of complex models and summary reports which evolve into standalone presentations that outline key findings and recommendations to internal and external audiences.

You will deepen your downstream markets expertise, specializing in the relevant sectors over time (e.g. refining, petrochemicals) and develop your analytical approach as well as thought-partnership skills. You will work closely with senior expert practitioners to build synthesized perspectives for clients as well as state-of-the-art knowledge and analytical tools.

You’ll have the opportunity to gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. You will receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues.
