Consultant - Manufacturing & Supply Chain

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Bogota, Guatemala City, Lima, Medellin or Santiago office as part of our Operations team.
Our Operations practice assists our clients in solving complex operational challenges, blending strategic thinking with hands-on practicality. Our teams of consultants and experts work to develop and implement operational strategies that solve our clients' most critical problems.

What You'll Do

You will play an active role in problem solving for clients including identifying issues, forming hypotheses, designing and conducting analyses, and synthesizing conclusions into recommendations.
As part of our two-year Operations Excellence Program (OEP), you will work on client engagements in the same way as any other McKinsey consultant. You will gain leading edge operations and consulting skills, primarily through on-the-job coaching which will be complemented by the OEP’s structured capability-building program. During your first few years with the firm, you will serve as a junior practice specialist on multiple client engagements and work with a number of colleagues and clients in a range of industry and operations service lines. You will acquire the necessary knowledge and expertise to help companies achieve excellence in their operations.
Along with other members of the OEP community, you will dedicate many days to functional training and knowledge development under the leadership of our operations experts. You will follow a curriculum based on operations excellence themes and will receive advanced training in specific areas of operations.
Additionally, you will engage with our clients to create new strategies across a wide platform of projects, from automation to mine optimization to predictive maintenance and more. You will not only expand our current analytics capabilities but will help architect new strategies and applications within a dynamic innovative organization.
Upon completion of the program, successful consultants will join our global group of leading experts in operational excellence. We already have OEP graduates working at all levels of the firm, from associate to partner.
