Is BCG and Bain LONDON offices recruiting on a rolling basis?

Anonymous A

Hi everyone,

I just want to ask whether these two offices recruit on a rolling basis. I know that McKinsey London doesn't and so we can have more time to prepare our applications before sending it off.

On the BCG website, there is a deadline date but no mention of 'rolling basis' element. On the Bain website, there are no deadlines (but happy to be proven wrong).

Thanks, all!

Tom, Eric and Chris are all right. Bain, BCG and McKinsey London all recruit on cylces for undgrad, non-MBA grad and MBAs. It's important to note that experienced hires for both consultant AND expert roles are done on a rolling basis and on "as needed" basis (posted positions).

Both don't unless you're an experienced hire

If you're applying as an experienced hire, this might be done on a rolling basis. If you're applying from schools then these would not be on a rolling basis.

Not sure about BCG but Bain don't do rolling basis.
