BCG

Australia

BCG in Australia and New Zealand recruit graduates mostly between February-March each year.  However, we do accept applications year-round outside of this period and we welcome your application anytime.

We look for driven, curious students who are excited by a challenge and want to have a positive impact on their communities, whether local, national, or global. As a graduate at BCG, you will be tackling the toughest challenges, benefiting from accelerated learning that serves you for a lifetime, and working with a caring, diverse and inclusive community of exceptional people.

You will be supported to learn and develop from your first day at BCG. We have a comprehensive program of formal learning. When you join, you will participate in a two-week foundations program with your starting cohort, where we cover core consulting skills, BCG processes and BCG networks. Your training is tailored to your career journey, for example, your first year as an Associate focuses on the BCG methodology of problem-solving and practices for effective project management. In addition to the core curriculum, you are able to opt-in to a number of different live sessions, covering topics including financial modelling, workshop facilitation and personal sustainability. Once a year the whole firm participates in core skills learning – an opportunity to learn from our leaders. Some of the best development experiences are on the job, as you learn by doing. You receive apprenticeship from your Project Leaders, Principals and Partners. In each case, you set learning goals upfront and get regular feedback from your Project Leader, Principal or Partner. You will also find that your peers contribute significantly to your learning.  As you progress through BCG, your Career Advisor will help you unpack feedback themes across projects and work through career development options. They are an invaluable sounding board as you chart your own BCG path.
