NOT ACTIVE : Big Data Project Manager – Munich (Germany)

In House Consulting With a Genuine Work Life Balance & Delicious Cakes

Have you ever thought about working in Consulting, but were put off by the weekly travel treadmill?

Or are you thinking about getting out of Consulting for the same reason?

What if you can get nearly all of the benefits that a Consulting job can bring without the worst bits?

I know what you’re thinking….

Is it really possible to work in Consulting and still have a happy spouse and family life?


Because in this job you will be an In-house Consultant working for one of the world’s largest insurance companies based in Munich.

Here’s 9 reasons why this is a great job:

1 . They’re one of the nicest group of people I have met in 17 years of recruiting – Recruiters are usually lucky if a hiring manager gives them 60 mins to take a job brief.  This company spent 4 hours with me and even drove me from their office to give me a tour of the Global HQ office.

They supplied me with the most mouthwatering cakes in Munich from their canteen, which had a better menu than most restaurants.  They treated me like I was their best paying client and not a supplier.

If that’s how they treat an external recruiter how do you think they will treat you?

2 . Great Work Life Balance – This job has travel, buts it’s way less than in a normal Consulting job.  If you’re in Consulting now this is your chance to get your personal life back.

When a project has a tight deadline and you have to work late you get your overtime credited via a flexitime system.

One of the team I met had just come back from a 3 week trip home to the USA taken as flexi time on top of his standard holiday allocation.

The only thing you’ll have to worry about in this job is spending too much time with your family.

You won’t get that at most Consulting firms.

3 . Real Big Data Projects with high visibility –  You’ll mostly be project managing technical Big Data projects.

Some of these will be capturing the low hanging fruit and aimed at leading the company towards smart decision making and strategic use of data.

Others will be cutting edge of Data Science & Machine Learning.  These initiatives have the board level commitment you need to make transformation work. This company is taking their Digital Transformation seriously.  Really seriously.

Your job will be right at the heart of this.

4 . Fast growing Team – Since Nov 2015 the team have grown from 90 people to 250 people.  Not bad growth inside a couple of years.

A business unit only grows that fast in a large company if it has C-level backing and it’s delivering.

Growing teams = big opportunities for you to get promoted quicker.

5 . An unbelievably high level of Stakeholder Trust – An enviable track record of hundreds of successful Consulting projects has added billions to the company’s bottom line.

This means your clients will respect you more than outside consultants.  You work for the same company as your clients so they know you’ll put their interests first.  No them and us routine here.

6 . Award Winning – Several times in recent years they have been awarded the Best In House Consultancy by the prestigious WirtschaftsWoche’s Best in Consulting awards.  So you know you’ll be working in a high performing team.

7 . Variety of Work –  The company has many subsidiaries delivering 100’s of products and services.  This means every project is different and you’ll constantly be dealing with new challenges.

It’s impossible for you to get bored in this job.    You’ll continually be learning new things at a rapid rate that’s just not possible in most jobs.

8 . You’ll be learning from the best – The partner leading this group previously spent 4 yrs at McKinsey – There isn’t much he doesn’t know about delivering impactful Consulting programs.   You couldn’t be in better hands.

9 . You get to see the Long term Impact of your work – In most Consulting jobs you complete the project and then move onto the next job without knowing what happened further down the road.

Here you won’t get that. Whilst you’re eating your cakes in the canteen expect stakeholders of previous projects to come up to you.  They’ll be thanking you for the successful project you delivered long after you’re gone.

This actually happened when I was there.
