Project Leader, Business Transformation - Orphoz (m/w/d)

  • Geneva
  • Zurich

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Zurich or Geneva office as part of Orphoz, a subsidiary of McKinsey & Company, working closely and in partnership with client's senior management and their specialist departments.
Do you know that only 1/3 of transformations are successful and sustainable? At Orphoz, we aspire to help our clients to achieve one of their biggest challenges: make their transformation plans really happen. Our day-to-day work is to support large companies and public entities who need to adapt their operating models to the accelerated changes of their environment, by combining agility, sustainable efficiency, and employee engagement. All in all, we exist to deliver lasting impact to our clients.
At Orphoz, you can expect a uniquely varied and exciting working environment, as well as the opportunity to work with a talented and dynamic growing team. Orphoz's alliance with McKinsey, a top consulting firm, creates many opportunities: joint missions, multiple opportunities to enrich one’s skillset, privileged access to high-level expertise, and a sharing of common values. Our work will give you access to multiple levels of our clients’ organizations, from the field to the management committees, while supporting them on the projects that are at the heart of their strategic agenda.
You will enter from day 1 on an accelerated development path thanks to real support and coaching from directors, who care about frequent interactions and true proximity. Moreover, coaching, mentorship and regular feedback are key in our culture and motivate a personalized support in the development of our teams. You will have an active role in the firm's growth. Orphoz combines the advantages of a start-up with light hierarchy, autonomy, freedom of expression and initiative and those of a large group – available resources to develop one’s projects, logistical support. Everyone is encouraged to bring their stone to a building that is still under construction and where everyone can find their place. 

What You'll Do

You will work largely in the private sector and concentrate on large scale business transformation projects largely in financial services, life sciences, pharma or similar.
You will lead on transformation projects by engaging at a deep level across our clients’ businesses, working in teams to build the capabilities, systems and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results and then ensure those results will be sustained.
In this role, you will lead, coach and motivate your team of consultants and client employees in each project. You will contribute to the implementation of Orphoz’s growth strategy as well as take responsibility on the development of the firm.
