Why Join Us?

  • You will be based in the Riyadh office, but may have the opportunity to travel for project work.
  • We’ll ask you to challenge the norm and strive to build something new to shape our firm and the world around us.

 

Chart your course; we support the journey

  • We care about you succeeding and you’ll be supported every step of the way. You will be mentored and coached by numerous colleagues, from partners and consultants to a dedicated “buddy,” formal “mentor,” and an “captain” overseeing the program.

 

 

We hire you to be you
  • Our open, inclusive, and down-to-earth culture will enable you to bring your authentic self to work.
  • There’s no corporate mold to fit and hierarchy doesn’t get in the way.
  • Many of your colleagues will become life-long friends.

 

Consultant development program:
  • The 6-12 month program is designed to prepare you holistically for a career in consulting. You will engage and work with Oliver Wyman’s project teams during the course of this program. Apart from research and analysis, slide-writing, project work, and structuring knowledge, you will also get exposure to core consulting skills through formal trainings complementing your on-the-job training. In doing so, you will collaborate with clients to take on challenging and interesting problems.
  • If Consulting is your career choice, then our Consultant Development Program could be the key to your future.
