Consultants (Experienced Hires)

Melbourne, Sydney

Consultants at L.E.K. are ambitious and bright professionals committed to solving some of the toughest business critical problems.  Our Consultants work closely with clients, leading case teams to provide actionable advice and the best strategic plans, using their creativity and problem solving skills.

Consultants at L.E.K. are offered an opportunity to manage case teams right from the start, offering a challenging and rewarding environment for new MBA graduates. By leading and managing day-to-day case activities, Consultants have a high level of responsibility early on. This opportunity allows L.E.K. Consultants to develop the business acumen necessary to quickly identify key client issues and management skills to effectively lead early in their career.

Once the key issues have been identified, the Consultant typically forms a plan to find the answers to these critical questions.  The Consultant will lay out the strategy to the team for finding information on market growth drivers, competitive profiling, and/or areas of potential operational improvement for the client.  L.E.K. Consultants ensure the team is on-track to accurately solve the problem and deliver an answer.  Working collaboratively with Partners and Managers, the L.E.K Consultant plays a key role in helping our clients succeed. 

Why L.E.K. is Different

The role of an L.E.K. Consultant is differentiated from the broader market in many ways:

Immediate Management Responsibility – Consultants have the opportunity to manage Associates from day one

International Experience – Many L.E.K. projects involve an international component, allowing Consultants to work with international case teams or, if they choose, to relocate to international offices on either a temporary or permanent basis

Upward Mobility – L.E.K. is a meritocracy with a vibrant, entrepreneurial culture.  Promotion pathways do not follow a strict timeline; we promote people as quickly as they develop

Breadth of experience - L.E.K. projects span strategy, M&A and operations with a deep focus on strategy.  Consultants will typically work on ~3-5 projects a year resulting in a stronger foundation of business skills with a breadth of industry exposure

Fun, Stimulating Work Environment – Strong culture of camaraderie and a first class professional development program underpin the supportive, collaborative environment 

Qualifications and Experience Needed

L.E.K. seeks highly motivated, creative, and entrepreneurial candidates who possess strong finance/quant skills, effective interpersonal and communication skills, leadership qualities, and uncompromising ethics.
