Consultant Position

Consultants at L.E.K. are typically the most experienced case team members dedicating 100% of their time to a single engagement; as a result, Consultants have a high level of responsibility in guiding and managing the case team.

Please note this opportunity is open to MBA students from AGSM only. 

Responsibilities include: 

  • Identifying the Critical Issues – Consultants work with Partners and Managers to outline the client’s key business issues that need resolution. L.E.K. Consultants develop the business acumen necessary to quickly identify key client issues early in their career
  • Structuring Analyses – 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, or broad market trends
  • Managing the Team’s day-to-day Activities – L.E.K. hires two undergraduates for every one Consultant, implying that the management of less experienced colleagues is as much a part of the Consultant role as solving business issues. A significant responsibility of L.E.K. Consultants is the guidance and mentorship of more junior Associates on a day-to-day basis
  • Solving the Case – At the end of the day, our clients expect high quality, actionable answers to their business problems. L.E.K. Consultants are on point to ensure the team is on-track to accurately solve the problem and deliver an answer. Consultant supervise analyses, develop the structure for the final output, provide quality control, and in most cases, participate in the delivery of the case conclusion to the client’s senior management
