Positions for Strategy Consultants
Monitor Inclusive Markets India (www.mim.monitor.com), a social-mission-driven unit of Monitor Group, the global strategy consulting firm, is recruiting to its team based in Mumbai.
Founded in 2006, MIM leverages Monitor’s core consulting capabilities to catalyse market-based solutions to the problems associated with poverty. We believe that greater engagement of the poor at the Bottom of they Pyramid (BoP) in socially beneficial markets is a powerful means of achieving positive social change. Our expertise in this field is recognized internationally and is reflected in groundbreaking reports such as ‘Emerging Markets, Emerging Models’ http://www.mim.monitor.com/downloads/emergingmarkets_full.pdf
In India, our work goes far beyond research and analysis, to working in the field with entrepreneurs, corporate players, investors, government and other stakeholders, in order to stimulate and drive activity in such markets. Notably, we have successfully catalysed market activity in low-income housing to serve the 21 million households earning Rs. 7,500 – 25,000 per month. Our efforts have led to some 50,000 houses (some at prices as low as Rs.3 lakhs) being sold by over 40 developers in 2010-11, and to the growth of housing finance provision for low-income customers, even those in the informal sector.
Whilst we continue to drive market development in low-income housing, our second program in urban water is well underway, and we are actively exploring further opportunities for business models in a range of other sectors. In order to expand our work, we are actively seeking candidates to join our team.
Successful candidates will be joining a small but dynamic team with a global outlook combined with local knowledge and experience. Team members come from a wide variety of backgrounds—from Ivy League and Oxbridge to IIT, urban planning to consulting, commercial startups to microfinance institutions—but all have a strong commitment to and passion for social change.
MIM India is currently recruiting for the following consultant positions:
Candidates need not come from a consulting background and could typically have a undergraduate degree with 2 – 3 years of experience or a fresh masters degree with little prior work experience
- Senior Consultant
Candidates will typically have had 3-4 years’ experience post their masters at top-tier firms. We also welcome applications from candidates who have had prior experience in top tier FMCG firms in India.
The following is a representative list of top-tier firms: Monitor, BCG, Bain, McKinsey, Booz, Dalberg, Technoserve, Bridgespan. Candidates should have an interest in using their consulting skills to help drive social change in India. Some work experience outside consulting, particularly in more operational roles, is highly desirable. Prior exposure to, or work on addressing, social issues is desirable but not required. These roles are based in Mumbai and entail substantial in-country travel.
Interested candidates should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating clearly the position they are applying for, describing why they are interested and why they would be good candidates, attaching their CVs.
