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. 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.

McKinsey New Ventures fosters innovation driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile and social by developing new products/services and integrating them into our client work. It is helping to shift our model toward asset-based consulting and is a foundation for –and expands our investment in –our entrepreneurial culture. Through innovative software as a service solutions, strategic acquisitions, and a vibrant ecosystem of alliances, we are redefining what it means to work with McKinsey.

What You'll Do

You will help shape McKinsey Energy Insights' perspective through our proprietary global energy demand projection model.

You will focus specifically on our Power-modules and will work closely with colleagues from McKinsey practices such as Electric Power and Sustainability & Resource Productivity. This will involve coordinating macroeconomic, technological and policy trends with McKinsey's insights on an industry level.

You will be responsible for identifying opportunities for further improvement of our models and you will develop the methodology and approach to implement them. You will also establish perspective on model maintenance and approach to regular updates, and oversee validation of results by stress-testing with broader network of McKinsey experts

You'll support client development by joining pitch discussions and actively contributing to preparations and work on client engagements.

As we work with colleagues on multiple locations, your role will involve travel on a regular (~monthly) basis, particularly to Amsterdam and London. Moreover, as the team works in a start-up environment and is growing rapidly, your role will involve contributions to the development of our product and team. Examples include involvement in product development (e.g., the web application), recruitment activities and presentations at external events.
