  • Synthesising findings and developing compelling C-suite level presentations that clearly articulate analyses / recommendations and act as a solid foundation for decision making
  • Applying robust project management practices for strategic engagements by structuring work in an efficient manner to manage scope, timelines, accountabilities and outcomes.
We're interested in hearing from people who have
  • 2-3 years of experience in strategy consulting (in-house or at a professional services firm) and/or financial services.
  • Excellent strategic thinking skills, including a hypothesis-based and structured approach to problem solving
  • Demonstrated aptitude in quantitative analysis and ability to apply those skills to financial model development and formation of business case recommendations
