Careers in Nigeria

“The work environment at the Lagos office is unrivaled”
- Osawe

Who we look for

We welcome people with heart and mind: problem solvers, creative thinkers, and those who are passionate about driving impact in Africa and around the globe. Whether you are just starting out or have many years of experience, we seek individuals who show potential in three main areas: personal impact, entrepreneurial drive, and inclusive leadership.

We are looking for people who are excited about delivering work that makes a difference. In turn, we offer endless opportunities to take what you know, develop your skills, and grow with a group that takes on the world’s toughest challenges.

We also celebrate diversity in our people. More than half of our consultants hold degrees and have experience in fields other than business and management consulting. We seek distinctive individuals who thrive in fast-paced environments and want to carve their path, challenge limitations, and work in teams to create real change across multiple functions and industries, both within Africa and worldwide.
