Careers in Australia and New Zealand

We work with companies across all sectors of the Australian and New Zealand economies on the issues that really matter—bringing McKinsey’s distinctive capabilities and global perspectives to each and every client.

McKinsey offers you the opportunity to work with some of the leading companies in Australia and New Zealand, government agencies, and nonprofit organisations on their most important challenges. You’ll work with talented and creative people, helping clients shape new perspectives and undertake initiatives that will transform their performance. Our work covers a range of industries, including mining, retail, telecommunications, travel and logistics, finance, energy, oil and gas, public sector, and health care. You’ll find that no two days will be the same—your working environment will be rich, multilayered, and always challenging.

In the Australian office you can expect to be staffed in locations throughout Australia and New Zealand. Most teams agree to work at the client's offices Monday through Thursday, and then return to their home offices each Friday. This typically limits time away from home to three nights a week for an out-of-town project. It also means that most people are back in the office on Fridays, creating a social atmosphere and a chance to connect across the office.

We take lifestyle very seriously in the Australian and New Zealand office and proactively help our teams to find the right balance. Our staffing coordinator will try to incorporate your personal needs and requests into staffing decisions.
