Back to Careers in BeLux

Roles we recruit for

Whether you want to explore a range of sectors, or stay focused on a practice, you can pursue your interests as a traditional consultant in McKinsey’s BeLux office. Many people join us as business analysts, junior associates, or associates and are promoted based on their contributions.

Outside of the traditional consulting role, we welcome a broad range of experienced professionals, industry experts, and analysts in specialist roles.

There are a number of opportunities available in McKinsey's BeLux office:

General and practice-based consultant

As a general or practice-based consultant, you’ll help some of the most successful leaders in the world solve their most difficult problems. Your clients could include CEOs, presidents, government ministers, and heads of nongovernmental organizations. As long as you are eager to learn, we’ll provide you with the resources and tools you need. We’ll coach, mentor and support you as you tackle each new challenge and bring value to your clients.

Throughout your time with us, you’ll be exposed to a variety of industries from pharmaceuticals to retail to insurance. Also, you’ll tackle issues in a range of functions such as operations, organization, strategy, technology, corporate finance and marketing and sales. As a practice-based consultant, you’ll stay focused on a practice. In all cases, you’ll learn to take a top-management perspective and use an integrated approach that considers the organization as a whole as you develop fact-based recommendations.

Practice specialist and expert

McKinsey BeLux practice specialists and experts are experienced professionals who join us as “subject–matter” experts. They have typically worked in a particular industry or function long enough to acquire significant expertise and choose to focus primarily in that area. They’re the go-to- people who join McKinsey for the opportunity to apply their experience in compelling and challenging new ways. Here, they become consultants associated with a specific practice area, working across a number of client teams to problem solve in their area of strength and passion. Most subject–matter experts join us as specialists or experts, and they advance based on the strength and impact of their contributions.

Solutions professional

McKinsey Solutions, located in Louvain-la-Neuve, attracts innovators who are passionate entrepreneurs, resourceful, driven, and creative problem solvers dedicated to bringing the firm’s expertise, frameworks, and tools to intuitive IT platforms that help companies build their capabilities for long-term impact. Our solutions teams in BeLux, and elsewhere around the world, are united by a common passion to create solutions that deliver McKinsey's proprietary knowledge to clients through state-of-the-art software and services. Innovation and smart client-service practices are at the heart of McKinsey Solutions, where we are dedicated to creating an outstanding organization. To help us achieve this, we need talented and ambitious people who inspire and deliver change.

Implementation consultant

Implementation consultants in BeLux work alongside our industry and functional experts, adding a critical dimension to our traditional consulting work. They partner closely with clients to help them capture value to produce rapid results and significant, measurable improvements in productivity, cost, quality, time-to-market, and other metrics. They also help strengthen and align leadership, transform processes, optimize management practices, and, in particular, build capabilities at scale through rigorous and supportive coaching.

Our implementation consultants work intensively with clients across all industries—from mining and manufacturing to banking and retail sales—to obtain lasting and substantial performance improvement through operational transformations, reorganizations, post-merger integrations, and new strategies.

Knowledge professional

McKinsey’s knowledge network is unique among consulting firms. Our knowledge professionals help consultants do what they do best—solve clients’ most important problems—by providing rapid access to specialized expertise and research. As a member of the BeLux knowledge network, you’ll have opportunities to build expertise in a particular industry (e.g., banking, basic materials), and a function (e.g., marketing and sales, strategy). With our diverse mix of client projects and internal knowledge-building initiatives, the knowledge network provides opportunities to serve in a host of different areas with the support of a close-knit community of consultants and knowledge professionals.
