Who You'll Work With

Energy Insights – a McKinsey Solution – strengthens McKinsey's consulting services in the energy sector. Energy Insights has been founded in 2012 to combine advanced analytics with proprietary data and specialized consultants to provide high-quality services to our clients. The organization consists of three main divisions: our Benchmarking division, our Diligence and Business Intelligence division and our Advanced Market Analytics division. In the latter we have teams focusing on oil, gas, LNG, oil field services & equipment and global energy demand.

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.

New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture.

McKinsey Solutions is a core part of New Ventures and offers practical tools that help people at all levels of an organization generate insights they need to address both strategic and day-to-day decisions. These solutions complement McKinsey's traditional client service and are delivered in many ways, including subscriptions, workshops, training programs and project-based engagements. We work closely with clients to embed our tools, analytics and expertise, and provide on-going support to help them build the capabilities they need to revolutionize how decisions are made.

You will work in the global energy demand intelligence team and play a pivotal role within the team and energy insights as a whole.
