Job Description
Turnaround Vice President - McKinsey Transformation
Who You'll Work With
You will work in one of our North American offices as part of the global McKinsey Transformation (MT) team. There will be flexibility in the location of this role, with MT hiring for VPs focused on transformation and restructuring in multiple offices globally.
McKinsey Transformation is a unit of McKinsey, founded in 2010, which focuses exclusively on holistic transformations and corporate restructuring, with a goal of helping clients drive rapid and dramatic performance improvement. We hire experienced professionals from industry, private equity, and the restructuring ecosystem to work with our Firm's global network of industry and function experts. Together, colleagues collaborate with clients to execute the steps needed to achieve extraordinary change.
In the Vice President role, you will have the opportunity to work on teams and help the best organizations in the world - across the private, public, and social sectors - solve some of their most difficult problems. MT has ~150 dedicated consultants and ~250 generalists consultants among our global affiliates and we serve clients in more than 50 countries. Many of our clients are among the largest impact situations for the Firm globally.
What You'll Do
You will operate as an engagement leader where you will lead the day to day execution of a client project, typically guiding a team of 3-5 consultants to help clients achieve new performance highs.
You will use the MT "recipe" of leveraging a holistic, execution-centric approach and providing interim management and transformation leadership capabilities. Your client engagements will often span 12-24 months and they will include three phases: independent diligence phase (6-8 weeks), bottom up phase (6-8 weeks) and implementation (6-12+ months).
You will work directly with clients - usually on site - and will take ownership of the overall project and its end products. You will be responsible for delivering the transformation process, integrating it across multiple workstreams, establishing the right mindset based on the latest performance and mobilizing the entire business to achieve and sustain value. You also will be responsible for ensuring that the team fully and properly leverages the capabilities of MT globally.
More broadly, you will have the opportunity to build on your proven leadership skills and leverage a range of influencing styles, ranging from respected "hard-edge" manager to motivational senior coach. You will inspire others, build strong relationships and display high energy and resilience in ambiguous and faced-paced contexts. In a collaborative team setting, you'll work closely with others but also autonomously with little direction.
