Our Work in the Netherlands

We are a global partnership engaged in thousands of projects, so there are plenty of opportunities across a wide variety of sectors and disciplines.

Making a difference—in the Netherlands and across the world

McKinsey helps leading companies, public-sector bodies, and social-sector organizations improve their performance and tackle their most serious challenges in strategy, operations, organizations, and technology. Our Amsterdam office serves all the Netherland’s key sectors and is also a global hub that supports major international companies—and plays a central role in McKinsey’s global knowledge development.

Two passions drive us. The first is to build leaders—within our firm, among our clients, and beyond—who have the commitment and capability to transform large organizations and improve entire countries. The second is to make a tangible difference in society: we work with government to strengthen education and health care, and we actively support a wide range of non-profit initiatives.

Our culture

While all our consultants have a strong record of academic or professional achievement, they come from many different disciplines—not only business and economics, but also engineering, medicine, arts, and humanities. We look for people with excellent problem-solving and people skills, leadership potential, healthy curiosity, and the courage to take initiative.

In every one of our client engagements, we bring together the best team of minds from around the world, drawing on the broadest range of industry and functional experience. Teams share a structured problem-solving approach, where all opinions and options are considered, researched, and analyzed carefully before recommendations are made.

The Amsterdam office is home to about 185 consultants. Our work is intense, but we have fun. For example, our colleagues have organized monthly “borrels” (drinks) on our rooftop terrace, ski trips, Sinterklaas and Christmas parties, and office retreats. We celebrate successful engagements on the canals of Amsterdam on our office boat—Max—which anyone in the office can use.

Community involvement

McKinsey helps the world’s leading organizations solve complex societal challenges related to global health, economic development, education, philanthropy, and climate change. Recent social initiatives of the Amsterdam office include Women Matter, which aims to increase the proportion of women in top management; New Venture, an annual competition for entrepreneurs, with McKinsey consultants providing one-to-one coaching; and, 21minuten.nl, an online survey to help increase public involvement in political debate.

Most of our Amsterdam office members are active in their communities—as sports fans and athletes, musicians, parents, photographers, and volunteers. Some serve on boards of nonprofit organizations; others have founded their own organizations.
