Why goetzpartners

A career in consulting has always seemed appealing to me, due to the multifaceted nature of tasks and the steep learning curve associated with the job. This impression was confirmed during my internship at goetzpartners. The great level of trust and responsibility I received, being treated as a fully-fletched team member from day one, convinced me that goetzpartners is the right place for me to grow professionally and personally.

MY MOST CHALLENGING PROJECT

Of course, every project holds its own individual challenges – However, the most complex project I have been involved in so far, was the transformation of a global metal processing player. The project involved the definition of different performance improvement levers along the entire value chain of the business. Paving the way for a successful implementation of the defined measures in close cooperation with our client team was not only a great learning experience but also an opportunity to demonstrate our strong hands-on mentality. In cooperation with our Corporate Finance colleagues, we managed to set the groundwork for the successful future of our clients – and all of this in the midst of the Corona crisis.

BEYOND PROJECTS

Aside from project work there is a wide variety of opportunities to get involved and to bring in own ideas. As part of our recruiting team, I support the hiring process for new colleagues. Moreover, in my role as a mentor, I try to facilitate the career start of our new hires and to convey our unique spirit and culture to them. Besides that, goetzpartners provides us with several possibilities to individualize our career paths, including PhD and MBA programs as well as social sabbaticals and leave programs. My personal highlight – My four months office exchange with our Milan office.

MY PERSONAL BACKGROUND

I studied Business Administration and Economics at the University of Passau and spent semesters abroad in France and Italy before completing my Master in Management at the University of Mannheim. After different experiences in consulting my decision for goetzpartners was an easy one – Working on dynamic and international projects together with great colleagues in a family-like atmosphere makes me thrive professionally as well as individually every day.
