Executive Assistant with German (2024 graduates)

  • Poznan

Who You'll Work With

You will be part of our Global Administration  team. This team is passionate about delivering exceptional administrative, organizational, and logistical support. They enable our colleagues and our firm to operate efficiently and fulfill its purpose to help create positive, enduring change in the world.
Based in our McKinsey Global Services office in Poznan  you will work with consultants, function leaders, external vendors, peer assistants, and other colleagues across the globe on tasks with international reach. You will support managers and partners who are based in other offices than yours and collaborate with your team of assistants onsite in Poznan, working in a 50/50 hybrid model (split between office and remote work).

What You'll Do

You’ll build meaningful, collaborative relationships with your teammates and colleagues who depend on your administrative support.
Whether it’s managing a full calendar, scheduling meetings across various time zones, or arranging and coordinating complex travel logistics, you’ll apply your multitasking, organizational, and decision-making skills to fulfill critical administrative and logistical requests.
At McKinsey, we have three different assistant roles: executive, team, and relief. As an executive assistant, you will provide long-term support for several executive-level colleagues, learning their preferences and developing close working relationships. As a team assistant, you will support client service teams for the duration of their client engagements from one to 12+ months, coordinating their working style and managing multiple schedules. And as a relief executive assistant, you will provide backup cover for absent assistants, supporting consultants for a short period of time, which gives you the opportunity to expand your network quickly and gain exposure to different regions, industries, and functions in which McKinsey operates. During the recruiting process, we’ll work together with you to align your skills and experience with one of these positions.
Candidates from various backgrounds are successful in this role. We are interested in your potential, attention to detail, and ability to problem solve in a collaborative and inclusive team environment. Because we offer extensive training, this is an excellent opportunity for candidates looking to start their careers, change industries or career paths, or for those currently in assistant roles who want to further grow and develop.

After a successful recruitment process, you will sign the contract of employment with McKinsey but your start date may depend on the date of your graduation. This is for a full time role to start in the summer 2024 upon completing graduation. 

See a day in the lifeof our executive assistants.
As a people-first firm, we offer a competitive salary, plus an exceptional benefits package that includes:
  • Additional annual payment based on firm performance
  • Private healthcare coverage for you, your spouse/domestic partner, and children including medical, dental, and mental health
  • Life and business travel accident insurance
  • Tuition reimbursement programs
  • Learning programs (including unlimited access to e-learning courses), coaching/mentorship opportunities, and feedback culture
  • Comprehensive onboarding to your new role
  • Professional development opportunities for career growth across the firm
  • Colleague benefit system with options such as fitness card, travel vouchers, tickets for cultural events and activities, reimbursement for kindergarten, and many others 
  • Pre-paid card to use for meals and/or groceries

  • Informal dress code
  • Guarded bicycle parking
  • And more
Position requires a 50/50 hybrid work setup - split evenly between remote and in-office presence.
