Sustainability Expert - Material Economics

  • Stockholm

Who You'll Work With

Material Economics is a sustainability focused professional services firm fully owned by McKinsey and Company. 
You will be based in our Stockholm office as part of Material Economics and the Sustainability practice. You will collaborate with Material Economics and McKinsey partners and consultants to solve key strategic imperatives in material transformation and circularity. 
The McKinsey Sustainability practice seeks to be the preeminent impact partner and advisor for our clients, from the board room to the engine room, on sustainability, climate, energy transition, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG). We are committed to investing behind this goal over the next four year – through our client service, knowledge and capability building, acquisitions and alliances as well as pro-bono investments.

What You'll Do

You will join Material Economics and the Sustainability Practice and you will typically lead a team of 3 – 5 consultants to help clients achieve new performance highs.
In this role, you will lead the day to day execution of a client project while guiding and developing individual team members. You’ll work directly with clients – usually on site – and you’ll take ownership of the overall project and its end products. You will make an important contribution to the analysis, design, and implementation of business performance approaches, developing tailor-made solutions and working closely with clients to ensure positive impact and sustainable results.
You will 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. 
Client project work typically includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing recommendations for presentation to client management. From there, you will implement those recommendations with client team members.
You’ll also gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. Alongside the Material Economics and Sustainability practice team you will develop your knowledge of sustainability, material transformation and circularity. Consultants receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues and senior leaders on their teams.
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.
