Careers in Australia and New Zealand

Upcoming Opportunities

Throughout the year we create opportunities and hold events that give you a clear picture of who we are, what we do, and what McKinsey would look like for you.

During the active recruiting periods throughout the year, McKinsey consultants and recruiters visit various universities in both Australia and New Zealand. These visits are a great opportunity for potential candidates to learn about McKinsey and understand the roles for consultants, as well as meet McKinsey representatives.

Whilst we are not able to visit every university in the region, candidates from any university are encouraged to apply. Applications are generally accepted all year round. However, when we are actively marketing certain opportunities and/or events we may set deadlines, which will be listed here.
