Careers in Finland

Great people work even better when they work together. We hire the world’s best talent, and we build a great firm by developing each other through apprenticeship and mentoring.

We look for people with excellent problem-solving and people skills, leadership potential, entrepreneurship, a healthy curiosity, and the courage to take initiative. The calibre of the individuals who work at McKinsey is reflected in everything we are and everything we do. While drive and talent are essential prerequisites to be successful here, a business degree is not. In fact our consultants have many different types of university degrees—including engineering, physics, humanities, medicine, and law. We believe the varied experiences of our office members constitute one of our greatest strengths.

Delivering through Diversity

We have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in business, in society, and within our firm.

Office culture

Given McKinsey’s team-driven culture, consultants in the Finland office spend a great deal of time together. We help clients and one another address top-level, strategic concerns. We work hard—but the friendships we develop with our clients and colleagues often last a lifetime.

When you come to McKinsey’s Finland office, you will join a community of people who share your passion to develop, experience, and contribute, and who enjoy spending time together. We have an office quartet, cross-fitness and running enthusiasts, and frequent Friday bars and social events. Our annual family Christmas party is a long-standing tradition, as is our crayfish party each August.

The bar to join McKinsey is high, and we look for the most talented students and experienced professionals of this generation. We care deeply about each person who joins the office, and we are committed to their success. Our staffing coordinator will help to incorporate your personal needs and requests into staffing decisions. As a member of our global management-consulting firm, you will have opportunities to advise leading organisations in Finland, as well as globally. Many very talented individuals choose to join McKinsey Finland because we can offer a truly global path to leadership. As long as you are eager to learn, we’ll provide you with the resources and tools you need.

Development opportunities

McKinsey is a meritocracy. Your progress depends on what you contribute, and we invest enormous resources in helping you develop. You will be on a fast track from the beginning. In your first two years alone we will give you eight weeks of training on basic consulting, advanced problem solving, leadership, and client-relationship skills.

All our consultants attend a training session with colleagues from other offices roughly every 18 months. These sessions give you a chance to build a network of peers across the world, and deepen your knowledge, confidence, and skills.
