We as a team

Wir als Team: Im gemeinsamen Gespräch mit Kollegen

We do not get things in motion against but with the client.



High expectations

We want to move things! None of us can meet the high expectations of our clients on our own – yet together, we are exceeding them again and again.

Perfect team spirit

Our teams have a captain. Each single player within the team is extremely important. Only with perfect coordination, we gain the victory and win the cup.

Together with the client

Each project is based on the fact that we come together with the client on an equal footing: We send a tailor-made team to the client, exactly matching the requirements of the project. Our team including captain is complemented by a likewise team on the client’s side, so that a lot of players meet for a friendly match, where everyone is feeding each other lines and celebrate the victory in the end.

Know-how alone
won't do.

  • As a person, you are confident and convincing?
  • Flexibility and mobility mean to you that you would like to be longer term at the customer's location?
  • You are very motivated and creative, can work independently as well as in the team?

Who we are really looking for

My colleagues are people sharing my sense of humor.

The chemistry must be right

Hard skills are a precondition. We go one step further – we are looking for personalities! Smart minds with common sense and a passion for taking over responsibility. We like characters better than mousy people – we like people with interesting CVs. True characters! If you are bringing with you more than just a very good exam result, you are our preferred candidate.

Your degree course is not that decisive – we welcome people from differing subjects – that is part of our success. We do not send hundreds of consultants to our clients, which is why every single project member counts. Being results-driven and taking over responsibility is typical for working at Barkawi Management Consultants. This demands a lot of curiosity, motivation and persistency. We are looking for people who listen carefully and are asking the right questions. And, of course, who draw the right conclusions from the responses given.

If you do not find individual responsibility scary, but challenging, than come and join us!

What is more, it is crucial you are a good fit as a person! For in our teams, cooperation is intense. As you will be spending a lot of time with your colleagues, the chemistry must be right – almost like in a marriage! And last but not least: We favor professional modesty – we let our achievements speak for themselves. Great, if you see that the same way!

The people at

The mixture at Barkawi's is just great.

Welcoming the whole world

The colleague in the room to the right studied in Germany, Brazil, speaks German, Portuguese as his mother tongue and English, of course, too. The colleague to the left was born in Germany, went to nursery school in the USA, made his A-levels in Egypt, studied in Munich and Los Angeles. We are welcoming the whole world as our colleagues. For he who knows the country and people has a big advantage when working abroad.

No 'pyramid'

Consultancies often work with a large numbers of inexperienced youngsters and often show an age structure resembling a pyramid: A few experienced veterans on the top, below a lot of “young fruit” with different degrees of ripeness.

Strong central layer

We have experienced consultancy experts in our teams – and, supporting them, a few hand-picked young colleagues – the smartest ones of each graduate group from international universities.

Our strong central layer consists of experienced professionals. This enables you to be trained constantly and to learn very quickly – and it results in a good outcome of our projects. We know what we do!
