By applying advanced analytics to address challenges across different areas, we help our clients gain significant, sustained improvements in performance. We work with clients to identify where to focus, convert data and models into actionable insights, and develop institutional skills and structures to sustain impact.

You'll review, support and advise on the day-to-day analytics requirements of clients' key operational processes while continually improving the impact of these processes, and you'll continually explore innovative analytical techniques, processes, tools, etc. to better serve clients and to be a thought leader in the industry.

As a core member of the consulting team, you'll conduct deep analytics on a broad set of client and external data and you'll have a lead role in team problem solving through findings and insights from analysis. You'll create value for clients by understanding their needs and translating them into optimal desired analytical services and you'll be a leader in overseeing analytics process and data integration between clients and McKinsey.

Furthermore, you'll lead and support the development of knowledge for our firm's analytic group.
