Wroclaw office – 2019 start - Associate (Entry level position)
The Associate Role
L.E.K.’s Associate role offers exposure to multiple industry sectors and a wide variety of commercial challenges. The nature and pace of L.E.K.’s strategic work facilitates the rapid development of a highly analytical skill-set, which is underpinned by a structured training programme. Associates are crucial to the success of L.E.K. project teams. They are responsible for the comprehensive research and analysis that form the basis of each engagement. Under the guidance of senior team members, Associates collect data on markets, competitors and customers, and perform the first stage of in-depth strategic and financial analysis. This enables the team as a whole to evaluate trends, develop conclusions, and prepare practical recommendations. As they gain more experience, Associates are expected to assume a more active managerial role in overseeing the progress of a project and the work of new Associates.
Developing your Skills
Working as an Associate at L.E.K. provides you with the opportunity to gain a comprehensive foundation in decision making. From strategy to finance, marketing to operations, Associates are involved in all aspects of strategic and financial analysis across a diverse set of industries. Our people are exposed to a wide range of industries and types of problems, which means their learning curve is steeper compared to the consultancy peer group. As a firm of strategy experts, not industry experts, staff are allocated to a wide range of strategy and transaction projects. The result is that our professionals are continually exposed to new challenges. There is no better or faster way to develop analytical and business leadership skills.
Training and Development
We operate a very comprehensive training programme: new joiners will have an initial two-week orientation programme, followed by continuous monthly training sessions, which are tailored to the needs of your position. L.E.K’s training covers the full range of technical, analytical, strategy, communication, project management & relationship building skills. L.E.K. is extremely committed to the training and development of all employees.
International Exchange Programme
L.E.K. operates an international inter-office exchange programme, which gives you the opportunity for international exposure, from individual casework in offices across the entire L.E.K. network to long-term international exchange options.
