Our Business Technology Office offers an exceptional opportunity to work at the intersection of business and technology. In a world where technology is invaluable for business, our consultants help C-level executives leverage technology to create a competitive advantage. The launch of the Africa Office has been a milestone for the Firm. This development reinforces McKinsey’s commitment to innovation and change as we serve our clients on the continent who are leveraging technology more strategically.

In all cases, you will help leading African institutions make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements in their performance. You will also have opportunities to work with our teams abroad in hotbeds of innovation (e.g., Silicon Valley). You will regularly push the boundaries of your area of expertise.
With colleagues from around the world, you will further develop McKinsey concepts as well as ensure that the knowledge and thinking in the Africa Business Technology Office are always up to date. Your ideas and experience are very important to the firm. McKinsey offers applicants excellent career opportunities in line with their level of experience.
