Who You'll Work With

You'll be based in Johannesburg, working with our Business Technology group. Junior Associates join our global offices and practices in locations around the world to work in teams and directly with our clients.

Business Technology (BT) is a functional practice within McKinsey. It is comprised of nearly 800 McKinsey consultants globally who help clients think strategically about how to use technology to create fundamental business change – from formulating technology-driven growth strategies to enabling more efficient operations through the use of technology.

As a part of BT, you will work with clients in a wide range of sectors and industries.
