How to apply

We want to accelerate great companies that are going somewhere, and we want to build a company capable of changing the management consulting industry from within. We offer the opportunity to learn advanced problem solving and how to engage with impact, and at the same time take part in building our civilisation. If you want to join a unified team of people who possess the right balance of intellectual capabilities and concrete social skills, keep on reading. We are always on the lookout for students, recent graduates and experienced hires with an entrepreneurial spirit and a high level of drive.

The recruiting experience

Management consulting is a people business, and it is just as important for applicants to get to know us as it is for us to get to know them. Therefore, the QVARTZ recruiting experience combines personal interviews, a numerical test and case exercises on business dilemmas. Candidates get to meet potential new colleagues up close and have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in problem solving and analytical reasoning. The elements of our recruitment process are the same across our offices, and we process all applications on an ongoing basis. Read more about our career offerings for students, recent graduates and experienced candidates below.

Nice to know

If you are new to consulting, do prepare for case interviews and the numerical test. Make sure you are familiar with the most common types of cases, and try not to cling too much to specific learnt-by-heart frameworks.

 

  • Practice some quick calculations without a calculator.
  • Reflect on who you are and how best to show your personality. Also consider how you want to interact with peers – both in group interviews and under less formal circumstances.
  • Download the QVARTZ case handbook for an introduction to case interviews and frameworks.

Students and recent graduates

If you are an ambitious student or soon-to-be graduate with a big heart that beats for management consulting, you can become part of our civilisation as a full-time consultant, a junior consultant or an intern.

We do our best to help our consultants across all levels thrive and grow through our structured Academy programme and by continually exposing them to new challenges. Over time, everyone is expected to take on more responsibility in terms of project complexity, relationship building, project/people management and building our civilisation. This is reflected in the progressive levels of our career model, each associated with additional responsibility and performance expectations.

 

Our consultants have many different backgrounds, the most common ones being MBAs or MScs in business or economics, engineering or science. When you join QVARTZ as a consultant, you are assigned a Qvartzback: a personal mentor who will help and support you in your development. Moreover, all QVARTZ consultants belong to a community of peers, offering sparring, comradeship and cross-office bonding. At QVARTZ, we are proud to foster a strong culture where it is as important to be able to lead as it is to be led.

As a junior consultant or intern, you work on client projects side by side with the rest of the team, performing tasks such as data mining, analyses, fact-finding and preparation of presentations – just to mention a few. Junior consultants typically work 15-20 hours a week whereas an internship covers 4-10 intriguing full-time weeks, depending on the office and your course requirements.

Both choices present a unique opportunity for you to get to know us and experience management consulting first-hand. By offering student positions, we get the chance to nurture skilled consultants that may later integrate seamlessly into our civilisation. In fact, most of them end up signing a full-time contract with us. Therefore, we invest strongly in our junior consultants and interns to make sure they are mentored and supported by experienced colleagues throughout their entire journey in QVARTZ.

If you are applying for a position as a full-time consultant, you are typically a second-year MSc student or perhaps a recent graduate with 1-2 years of experience. To be eligible for a position as a junior consultant or intern, you should be a third-year BSc student or an MSc student. Whether your line of study is business, engineering, science or something completely different is not the decisive factor. What tips the scale is your strong analytical skills combined with an empathetic, courageous and curious personality.
