We are committed to increasing the opportunities for global experience—in particular with self-initiated transfers to other countries, assignments to fill temporary business needs and being staffed on client projects. Global experience provides an opportunity to cultivate valuable skills to address our clients’ needs, such as a broader mindset, cultural sensitivity, an ability to manage complexity, emotional resilience, and relationship-building skills.
These skills are especially enhanced when working in other countries. We are progressively increasing the number of global opportunities. Participation in the mobility program has increased by 50% over recent years. Consultants and management services colleagues have transferred to another office location in more than 20 countries. More than 60% of transfers are at the analyst and associate levels. And many consultants are working on client engagements outside their home country.
Consider how mobility at A.T. Kearney could offer you an opportunity for unsurpassed personal growth!
What are my options for global mobility?
Consultants must meet eligibility requirements, including tenure and strong performance in order to participate. Global staffing and mobility opportunities:
- Staffing roles on client projects globally provide Consultants an opportunity to be assigned to other geographies for varying lengths of time on client-based project assignments.
- Transfers to local country employment exist to facilitate business needs and personal preferences for a period of time, or on an indefinite basis to accommodate a personal request or fill an open position.
- Assignments are utilized primarily to fill temporary business needs that support strategic roles and leadership development for partners and principals, and to build emerging/target markets.
