Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Zurich or Genève 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? Orphoz helps leading private sector organisations execute business transformation programs in a time of accelerated change. The business transformation includes organisational structure, capability building, and service redesign. We turn strategy into practice, using agile, efficient, and highly engaging methods that work on the ground rather than just looking good on paper. Orphoz integrates the skills, the approach, the corporate culture, and the resources that lead to the success of complex and challenging transformation projects and is ideally positioned to smoothly implement strategies designed by McKinsey & Company.
We plan and deliver change projects together with our clients, helping them capture their full potential. We know what determines the success of large projects and what can ensure lasting implementation success. We work closely and in partnership with our clients' senior management and specialist functions. We combine strategic and operational project management, with strong execution skills and an understanding of the specific demands of each industry. We measure our success by achieving the goals we set together with our clients.

Backed by a solid foundation in the lean management philosophy, you will systematically apply project management methods in all project phases. You will drive change and execute initiatives successfully, coaching clients across organizations.
