Associate - McKinsey Digital

Who You'll Work With

You’ll join the McKinsey Digital team in our Cairo, Doha, Dubai or Riyadh office to help enterprises think strategically about how to leverage technology to create fundamental business change – from formulating tech-driven growth strategies to enabling more efficient operations through the use of technology.
As part of this group, you will join a global team working on everything from IT modernization and strategy to agile, cloud, cybersecurity and digital transformation. You will also work with colleagues from across McKinsey & Company to help our clients deliver breakthrough products, experiences and businesses, both on technology and non-technology topics. You will work with clients in a wide range of sectors and industries. Some McKinsey digital consultants work exclusively within digital while others mix their digital focus with broader consulting work (e.g., operations, organization, strategy, corporate finance, marketing and sales, etc.).

What You'll Do

You will work with C-suite executives in problem-solving on their key issues and provide actionable recommendations leveraging your technology know-how and business sense.
You will play an active role in all aspects of a client project, typically working in teams of 3 to 5 consultants alongside experts and partners of all tenures including developers, designers, data engineers, agile coaches and others. This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations for client presentations. You will also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.
You will also gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. As a consultant, you will receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues.
