WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
You’ll be working with McKinsey’s Operations practice in Europe.
Our Operations practice assists our clients in solving complex operational challenges. Blending strategic thinking with hands-on practicality, our teams of consultants and experts work to develop and implement operational strategies that solve our clients' most critical problems.
Our Capital Productivity group is part of our Operations Practice, providing clients with support and advising their management teams on strategic and operational questions relating to large construction projects.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
You will work in teams of consultants providing managerial expertise gained from large construction projects.
This includes applying your experience in bottom-up design, design optimization, risk management, contracting and procurement, construction management, and the ramp-up of production processes in capital-intensive industries.
You will likely carry out lean construction project implementations and capability building. As part of this, you’ll develop short- and long-term capability-building plans for all relevant levels of client leadership and McKinsey client service teams, with anticipated deliverables, outcomes, and required resources.
You’ll have the opportunity to introduce new frameworks, tools, or ways of using existing material, to identify clients for beta testing, and to codify new knowledge in articles. Colleagues will look to you for your expertise on project/program management tools such as portfolio management, lifecycle planning, and project tracking.
As in with all consultants, you will perform structured, fact-based diagnoses of systems, processes, and organizations across a broad range of industries.
Your application should be in English and include a cover letter, your CV, and your transcripts (high school, university, etc.) indicating all relevant grades.
McKinsey is a global management consulting firm where you'll have unrivaled opportunities to work face-to-face with the leaders of the world’s most impressive organizations and to leave your mark.
We provide a broad range of opportunities for you to meet people, make friends, and build networks that can help you wherever your career takes you
