Who We Are

Do you want to be in the room with the world’s most important corporate and government leaders, regulators, and academic experts? Are you interested in helping to shape strategy and have a meaningful impact? Would you like to help drive the conversation and thinking that leads to tangible, real-world change for clients, industries, and societies?

Oliver Wyman is a global management consultancy with strong relationships in all corners of industry, government, and non-profit organizations. Clients bring us their greatest challenges. We assemble teams of experts to work on each part of these complex problems, and together we create breakthroughs that achieve amazing impact.

Visit an Oliver Wyman office anywhere in the world and you will feel it: the buzz of people doing work that matters, with a sense of purpose. Our company comprises a diverse mix of talented people from varied backgrounds and areas of expertise who marshal creative thinking and analytical rigor. Our inclusive, collaborative, non-hierarchical culture allows new thinking to surface quickly. The best idea wins, and everybody is encouraged to contribute. This makes Oliver Wyman both an ideal adviser for organizations and an ideal place for exceptional people to realize their potential.

Sustainability Project Assistants

We are recruiting full-time and part-time (up to 30 hours per week) Project Assistants for roles on sustainability focused projects from January – March 2022.

Climate change and sustainability have quickly become a priority for many governments and institutions across the globe. Oliver Wyman has deep experience in this area and has gained leadership especially in the Green Finance space.

We are supporting a number of financial institutions in building their strategies to manage the risks climate change is creating for them, building their strategies to tap into the opportunities, and building roadmaps for them to support the Global Net Zero transition.

Your role in these projects will entail:

  • Supporting analysis required to define metrics and emissions targets for key industries in order to determine what it takes to get the world to Net Zero

  • Conducting analysis and problem solving to stress test the bank’s portfolio, leveraging Oliver Wyman’s industry-leading methodologies and tools

  • Participating in developing Oliver Wyman’s strong knowledge base on sustainability by understanding industries’ sensitivity to climate change

  • Contributing to the preparation and format of materials to the client, their senior management or Board

  • Working with colleagues and partners from different regions to deliver client impact

In addition, you will get the opportunity to work with some of the largest corporate champions on the topic of sustainability, getting a bird’s–eye view of how the largest institutions and governments are helping solve some of the biggest problems in this domain.

Why Join Us?

Come aboard if you are excited by challenges and at ease working across cultures. You’ll find interesting people who speak their minds and measure success not by how many hours are worked but by what gets accomplished.

Immediate impact, continuous challenge

  • Experience as a Sustainability Project Assistant at Oliver Wyman will provide a true taste of life as a consultant and unique preparation for a full-time role.

  • During your internship, you’ll work on 1-2 challenging projects that have a significant impact on clients, industries, and societies.

  • You’ll be a full team member, with responsibility for a distinct piece of work that will help the team deliver breakthrough impact.

  • 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

  • Throughout your time with us, we will demonstrate our commitment to your growth and development, and to helping you chart your post-graduate course.

  • You’ll learn on the job via our apprenticeship model. Much of your focus will be on research and analysis, and you may also have opportunities to begin developing your communication, presentation, and client-management skills.

  • We care about you succeeding and you’ll be supported every step of the way and you will be mentored and coached by numerous colleagues, from partners and consultants.

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.

Who Can Apply

Our Sustainability Project Assistant role is open to students and recent graduates (those graduating between 2021 and 2023). We look for people who display initiative, intuition, and creativity with a strong problem solving and analytical mindset. We do not require specific academic majors or industry experience and look for diversity of experience and skills. We value extracurricular activities and evidence of leading an interesting and impactful life outside of your studies. Any prior experience on topics of sustainability & green finance is not mandatory but will provide an added advantage from a content perspective.
