Junior Specialist - Recovery and Transformation Services (RTS)

  • Tokyo

Who You'll Work With

You’ll join our global RTS team in our Japan office. 

RTS is a unit of McKinsey, founded in 2010, that focuses exclusively on holistic transformations and corporate restructuring. We help clients drive rapid and dramatic performance improvement, plus provide a full suite of services to support companies facing liquidity issues or insolvency. To do so, we pair experienced professionals who are drawn from industry, private equity, and the restructuring ecosystem with our firm’s global network of industry and functional experts.

What You'll Do

You will be assigned in a large scale transformation program as a part of a client service team, and will be a member of the Transformation office (TO) with assignments ranging from 6 – 24 months in duration depending on the nature of the program

In this role, your specific job will be different from phase to phase. In the Independent Diligence Phase (IDP), you will play an important pivotal role to train client TO members before starting the next phase, Bottom Up Phase (BUP).  You will run multiple training sessions on problem solving, facilitation, effective communication, excel skills, and wave masterclasses etc, to help client TO members lead the next phase. 
You will also closely work with client TO members and the McKinsey Wave team to set up a transformation infrastructure.  In the BUP, you will work with a project manager to run it efficiently; you will lead the coordination of preparation meetings, weekly TO meetings, and wrap up meetings.  You will work with coaches to train workstream members on running a weekly cadence of meetings, L-gate definitions, and RTS methodology. 
Lastly, in the implementation phase, most of your activities will be transferred to client members.  Depending on the nature of the transformation, you may then run a different workstream or may roll off from the program to join other program.
