Engagement Manager - McKinsey Digital

  • Osaka
  • Tokyo

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Osaka or Tokyo office as part of McKinsey Digital.
Our group brings together the best of McKinsey’s digital capabilities to help our clients use digital technology to transform their businesses.  As part of this group, you’ll join a global team working on everything from IT modernization and strategy to agile, cloud, cyber security and digital transformation. You’ll typically work on projects across all industries and functions and will be fully integrated with the rest of our global firm. You’ll 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. 
When you join McKinsey, you are joining a firm whose culture is distinctive and inclusive. We will accelerate your development as a leader to create positive, enduring change in the world.

What You'll Do

You will typically lead a team of 3-5 consultants to help clients achieve new performance highs.
You will lead the day to day execution of a client project while guiding and developing individual team members. You’ll work directly with clients – when possible on site – and you’ll take ownership of the overall project and its end products.
You will make an important contribution to the analysis, design and implementation of business performance approaches, developing tailor-made solutions and working closely with clients to ensure positive impact and sustainable results. You will have the opportunity to build on your proven leadership skills and leverage your interest in inspiring others, building strong relationships and creating a true followership. In a collaborative team setting, you'll work closely with others but also autonomously with little direction.
Client project work typically includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing recommendations for presentation to client management. From there, you will implement those recommendations with client team members.
You’ll also gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. Consultants receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues and senior leaders on their teams.
McKinsey Digital consultants work on the same types of engagements as anyone else at McKinsey. On balance, however, we do more technology and digital-related projects than others at the firm. In addition, our consultants develop particular expertise on how to leverage IT/digital to drive business success whether in a particular industry or in a functional area.
