Developing talent

In addition to classic on-the-job training, we offer a variety of opportunities for you to develop and grow both professionally and personally, and to progress your career in the direction you wish.
 

TRAINING

The goetzpartners Academy makes you fit for consultancy practice, and ensures you have a steep learning curve. Within their first few months, new recruits spend a week at an International Boot Camp: a busy agenda with training to build hard and soft skills, teambuilding, and also lots of fun. You will undergo other training specific to your level throughout your entire career at goetzpartners, and will also have individual opportunities for professional development.
 

COACHING & MENTORING

By your side from day one: your mentor. He or she will make sure you settle in and help you with any questions you have about your career. Your project team will take care of coaching in everyday practice, and you will receive regular, constructive feedback as part of project evaluations, which you can channel into actively progressing your own development. Feedback is a two-way process at goetzpartners: you are regularly invited to give your feedback on colleagues or project managers in our 360-degree program.
 

WoRKiNG INTERNATIONALLY 

Feel the pull of faraway countries? With 14 offices worldwide and projects in more than 100 countries in the last three years alone, you have every chance of international deployment. 70% of our consultants are engaged with projects outside Germany, work in international teams or spend 6-12 months in other countries as part of our office transfer program.
 

Flexibility 

To sustain a successful career, it should be compatible with your personal interests and what else is happening in your life. This takes considerable flexibility - which is what goetzpartners provides. We offer various part-time working models (including 10+2/11+1) or the possibility to take a complete sabbatical break - for the family, further education or just to follow a dream.

Recruiting process

If you are planning to join us as a Consultant, you should apply four months in advance of your preferred start date. Applications are welcome at any time. Please send us your complete application with cover letter and CV. We shall carefully review your application, and give you our response shortly afterwards.
 

CLASSIC RECRUITING DAY

The recruiting day is all about getting to know one other and exploring the fit - professional and personal - between potential recruits and goetzpartners. We present our company, give insights into how we work, and answer all your questions.
You then present your CV and discuss business cases in up to seven interviews with our advisers. In addition, you give a brief presentation to the interviewer team and complete a multiple choice test. The final decision will be communicated directly after the recruiting day.

SUMMITEERS RECRUITING EVENT

Our Summiteers recruiting event, which takes place only in Germany, has the slogan "Start your career with Alpine views". The two-day event high in the mountains gives candidates the opportunity to get to know goetzpartners better, and engage with future co-workers at all levels of the organization. A group case, an outdoor challenge, teambuilding and a convivial get-together in an Alpine refuge are a valuable complement to traditional interviews. Once you have conquered the mountain and cracked the case, you go home with a job contract in your pocket.
