More Information

OC&C is recruiting for the Engagement Manager position in our B2B Services Practice across both our New York and Boston offices.

 

OC&C Strategy Consultants works with B2B Services clients in areas including Construction and Infrastructure; Outsourcing; Lifesciences; and Automotive Services. Working with companies in these areas to drive topline growth, as well as with investors focused on these sectors.

 

These industries are characterized by challenging strategy problems which require original thought, and we require people of the highest intellectual caliber who thrive on novel thinking. It is less important that you have deep expertise in the sectors – we can rapidly help you build that. And more important that you demonstrate an ability to lead teams of 3-6 consultants in tackling these difficult problems. Although you will be involved in business development, your primary contribution in the Manager role will be assisting the Partners in generating demand for repeat business through delivery excellence.

 

As a fast growth business, we are looking for candidates for the Manager position who are excited by the longer-term path to Partnership at OC&C. We can offer rapid progression to great talent.

 

We are looking for candidates with at least 5 years’ strategy consulting experience (including in-house strategy roles) for this position. Or candidates who have at least 2 years’ experience after an MBA degree.

 

Qualifications:

  • At least 5 years professional experience gained partly or entirely in a strategy consultancy environment (either working for a consulting firm, or an in-house strategy role)
  • Outstanding track record of achieving and exceeding objectives
  • Experience of managing work streams and teams
  • A proven ability to develop successful relationships at senior executive to Board level
  • Experience in the B2B Services industries where we specialize is preferred, but not required

 

Candidates will need to demonstrate the following abilities:

  • Hypothesis and issue driven approach to tackling complex strategic questions
  • Analytical thinker, who can recognize critical issues and dedicate attention accordingly
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Effective team manager - a pragmatic, enthusiastic and structured do-er, with an ability to create and maintain pace while ensuring that energies are well focused and channeled
  • Integrity, honesty, respect for the individual, and culturally unbiased
  • Credible at Board level, with the ability to relate well to clients and colleagues

To apply for this position, please submit your resume and a short cover note as one document online to this vacancy.
