We operate as one global firm, making it easy for our consultants to work internationally and develop a network of clients and colleagues around the world–if that’s what they want to do.
A geographic move offers unparalleled opportunity for professional and personal growth–bolstering problem-solving and people skills, and allowing you to craft a career that reflects your interests.
We offer three main opportunities for international experience:
You can relocate to another office or client location for a period of six months or less to participate as a team member on a specific engagement.
If you want to see what another office is like, you can move there for a year.
Long-term or permanent transfer
If you’d like to settle down somewhere for professional or personal reasons, you can move to a new office permanently.
A culture of moving
Half of our partners and more than 20 percent of our associates have worked outside their home region. Each year, more than 200 consultants take short- or long-term transfers. And last year, more than 40 percent of our consultants worked outside of their home region on an engagement loan. They’re rewarded with experiences that enrich their careers.
