Hi there!

In general, we hire new joiners with a master degree as Consultants. However, the decision to hire a new joiner as Consultant or Associate Consultant depends on the individual applicant and his/her experience as well as on the performance in the assessment center.

If somebody is hired as Associate Consultant Level 0 (AC0) it takes 24 months to reach Consultant. However, our management reviews the performance of each individual employee at least twice a year and can (and will) make changes to the tenure if the performance is right.

Furthermore, we also hire people with a tenure “in between”, e.g. AC12. Meaning: You only need one year or less to become Consultant.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards
