The Associate Role
L.E.K.'s Associate role offers exposure to multiple industry sectors and a wide variety of commercial challenges. The nature and pace of L.E.K.'s strategic work facilitates the rapid development of a highly analytical skill-set, which is underpinned by a structured training programme. Associates are crucial to the success of L.E.K. project teams. They are responsible for the comprehensive research and analysis that form the basis of each engagement. Under the guidance of senior team members, Associates collect data on markets, competitors and customers, and perform the first stage of in-depth strategic and financial analysis. This enables the team as a whole to evaluate trends, develop conclusions, and prepare practical recommendations. As they gain more experience, Associates are expected to assume a more active managerial role in overseeing the progress of a project and the work of new Associates.
Developing your Skills
Working as an Associate at L.E.K. provides you with the opportunity to gain a comprehensive foundation in decision making. From strategy to finance, marketing to operations, Associates are involved in all aspects of strategic and financial analysis across a diverse set of industries. Our people are exposed to a wide range of industries and types of problems, which means their learning curve is steeper compared to the consultancy peer group. As a firm of strategy experts, not industry experts, staff are allocated to a wide range of strategy and transaction projects. The result is that our professionals are continually exposed to new challenges. There is no better or faster way to develop analytical and business leadership skills.
Training and Development
We operate a very comprehensive training programme: new joiners will have an initial two-week orientation programme, followed by continuous training sessions, which are tailored to the needs of your position. L.E.K's training covers the full range of technical, analytical, strategy, communication, project management & relationship building skills. L.E.K. is extremely committed to the training and development of all employees.
What we are looking for
L.E.K. seeks highly motivated, creative, and entrepreneurial candidates and hires Associates with backgrounds in economics, science, engineering, technology, mathematics, etc. Successful candidates typically possess outstanding academic achievements, are comfortable with quantitative analysis and have excellent verbal and written communication skills in English. Fluency in another European language is considered an asset. Having previous international experience is a requirement. An internship at a consultancy firm or being part of a student consultancy association is beneficial.
Application Process
We are looking forward to receiving your application!
Our start dates are going to be in July and September 2024.
Please upload your application documents (cover letter, CV, references) on our career site and indicate your desired start date in the cover letter.
The application deadline for this position is 28th February 2024, 23:55
We aim to get back to applicants no later than two weeks after the application deadline.
After completing the online application process, selected candidates will be contacted by our Recruitment Team and invited to numerical reasoning test followed by a series of interviews. Applicants stating 'fluency' in a language will have this assessed during the recruitment process. Please note that fluency in English is a requirement for working at L.E.K. Wroclaw.

Diversity and inclusion at L.E.K.
Here at L.E.K., we appreciate the value of a diverse and inclusive workforce and are committed to a culture that is inclusive and accepting of all people. Above all, we are committed to ensuring that all employees are treated with respect and dignity. L.E.K. Consulting is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
