Careers in South Africa

Working at McKinsey South Africa

We hire exceptional people with outstanding capabilities and great potential in four areas: problem-solving abilities, achievement-oriented focus, a desire to have an impact on the world, and leadership. We welcome experienced professionals year-round, whether you have many years of work experience or just a few. People with bachelor’s degrees and excellent academic records join McKinsey’s business analyst program. We attract MBAs who thrive in entrepreneurial environments. They carve their own paths, challenge limitations, and are passionate about creating impact. More than half of our consultants have advanced degrees in fields other than business—medicine, law, and more.

We’ll help you carve your own career path and find the right balance with your personal life through our award-winning flexibility programs. Participating in diversity networks connects us to social issues important to us, while deepening our relationships with one another.
