Dein Arbeitsumfeld

You will be based in one of our European offices as part of our Sustainability practice. You will join a group of McKinsey partners, consultants, and experts who are actively working to build green businesses.
You'll typically be involved in 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.
We work with established organizations to imagine, build, and scale new businesses and develop the capabilities needed to do it again and again. Our business building methodology brings together the flexibility of a startup with the resources and experience of a corporation. 
We build with clients, not for them, as one integrated team. By focusing on capabilities, we create businesses that continue to thrive after we've gone. We offer you the chance to build your own startup inside an incumbent/incubator environment.
Our office culture is casual and social, with an emphasis on education and innovation. We have the freedom to try new ideas and experiment, and are expected to constantly learn and grow. There is also a strong emphasis on mentoring others in the group, enabling them to grow and learn.

Deine Aufgaben

You will help new green businesses that have the potential to make a real difference – for the world and for their investors.
In this role, you will drive lasting innovation and breakthrough engagement either as a standalone startup or as part of an incumbent at arm’s length.
Depending on the client’s needs, you will help create a new sustainable unit for an existing business or help incubate and ultimately scale a new standalone business. Either way, you always start with a strong mandate for innovation and seed teams with client-side and McKinsey practitioners – product owners, user-centric designers, engineers, agile experts, and more – as well as a strong interim leadership team to operate the new entity.
You will partner with clients to transform their businesses using our build-operate-transfer approach. You'll leverage your experience in defining and leading sustainable and innovative transformations. You will work daily alongside colleagues from varying backgrounds to deliver on client needs, helping create a vision and a roadmap for their new green business, products, or service lines. You will architect the future of these enterprises and be at the center of innovation for clients as you help expand their business and establish a functioning organization.
Your role will be a mix of venture leader, entrepreneur in residence, and C-suite-type leadership for the businesses you help create. Sometimes you'll also be a coach to the new venture leadership and corporate leaders, advising on how to maximize their odds of success in making a corporate startup work. You will be part of multiple cross-functional teams working together to build a sustainable green business you can hand over to our clients.
