What You'll Do

You will work with consultants and fellow researchers to understand, disaggregate, and prioritise their information needs.

You will help McKinsey teams determine the most appropriate solution to the issues they are working on, effectively balancing quality, availability, timeliness, and cost limitations. By leveraging global electronic databases, and the McKinsey knowledge management network, you will collect, summarise, synthesise and form a well-structured perspective based on the relevant facts. You will communicate the end products (e.g., frameworks, PowerPoint charts, summaries, fact packs, excel spreadsheets) to the teams in a clear and synthesised manner, using the McKinsey format and style.

You will also provide coaching cover to junior colleagues. As you progress, you will start to build knowledge in a niche area and deliver on real time client projects. You will also get exposure in the area of people leadership and eventually be responsible for the overall service delivery from a team of analysts. You will also get exposure in cross functional areas like training, recruitment, process management etc for the entire service line.
