Expert Consultant - Material Economics

  • Stockholm

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in Stockholm as part of Material Economics, a management consulting firm advising companies on sustainability as a key strategic imperative and business performance driver.
Material Economics specializes in sustainability, circularity and resource strategy topics. We help companies develop sustainability strategies that deeply transform companies to be a successful part of the net-zero economy. We believe sustainability is a strategic issue at the top of mind of executives. It also is increasingly complex. Tackling these issues requires a specialized management consulting firm of the highest quality. Our work goes to the heart of our clients’ business, targeting core business strategy issues arising from the ongoing sustainability disruption.
The work we do makes a real difference – both on the policy level where we break new ground with our reports for the EU and beyond, and by affecting the strategic decisions of big corporations. By combining Material Economics’ capabilities and innovative culture with McKinsey’s extensive network, we can broaden and deepen our sustainability offerings, and accelerate our ambition to create a global engine for sustainability operating from the region.

What You'll Do

As an expert consultant at Material Economics, you will help solve complex problems impacting companies and society and drive the field of sustainable business strategy forward.
In this role and in close partnership with McKinsey consulting colleagues, you will own the collaboration with our clients, leading the day-to-day execution of project delivery as well as guiding and developing individual team members. You will actively contribute to the analysis, design, and implementation of business performance approaches and tailor-made solutions to ensure positive impact and sustainable results.
You will have the opportunity to build on your proven leadership skills and leverage your interest in inspiring others, building strong relationships, and creating a true followership. In a collaborative team setting, you'll work closely with others but also autonomously with little direction. Your superior analytical, quantitative and conceptual thinking skills and strong interpersonal and communication skills will ensure successful client projects and team performance.
Lastly, you will play a key role in helping us to grow both our sustainability practice and our reputation as leaders in the market, so we can continue to fulfill our mission to help all industries get to net zero by 2050 and cut carbon emissions in half by 2030.
