As Francesco has said, you likely wouldn't be considered for a JA position. However, you may be able to negotiate entering at a 2nd year Analyst level, meaning you have the opportunity for faster promotion to Associate if you prove yourself. In London, this happens quite frequently at both Bain and McKinsey.

Hi for the 2nd year Analyst, does it follow the same recruitment timeline as campus recruitment, or is it possible to apply as an experienced hire which is open all year round? thanks — Chloe am 26. Jul 2018 (editiert)

Hi Anonymous,

the answer may be different according to the country, but at least in Europe, with such experience you will be considered for an Analyst position, not a Junior Associate Position. In order to qualify for a Junior Associate Position, you would need to have completed a PhD or have a minimum of 3-4 years of work experience.

Hope this helps,


Hi Francesco, is there a way to apply for the BA/senior BA as an experienced hire? the current BA application at our country follows the campus recruitment, which means it'll take another 1 year at least to get a final result — Chloe am 26. Jul 2018
