Job Description

Who we are 

As a global consulting partnership with 60 offices in 40 countries, our people make us who we are. We’re individuals with different passions and strengths who take as much joy in the work we do as from those we work with. Over the years we’ve fostered a culture in which we are united by shared values—passion, solidarity, generosity, curiosity and boldness—and these come alive in the work we do and how we do it.  

Together, we know our people are our difference—for our clients, our colleagues, and our communities.  That’s why we take pride in being individual and inclusive and create a place where everyone can bring their full self to work.

  • Have preferably international experience (work or study) 

  • Be fluent in English and Czech or Slovak
