Who You'll Work With

You'll be working in one of our Middle East Office locations as part of McKinsey Implementation – a rapidly growing capability for our firm. As a member of MI, you'll work closely with our client project teams, providing end-to-end support to ensure the clients are able to deliver and sustain the full benefits of McKinsey's recommended change in their business.

What You'll Do

You will help clients build capabilities in delivery and execution, both during an active project and continuing after our consultants have shared their recommendations.

You will support our Oil & Gas Practice, which serves leading international and national oil companies, oil field services and equipment providers, and private-equity investors across the entire oil and gas value chain.

You will engage at a deep level across our clients' businesses, working in small McKinsey teams, but often working with many clients, to build the capabilities, systems, and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results with an aim to ensure those results will be sustained. Our work is about coaching and delivering lasting outcomes.
