Ihre Bewerbung bei Barkawi

You pass through a
multi-level selection process:

After checking your application, which has been sent to us via our career portal, you will receive feedback within a few days. This will be followed by an invitation to an individual assessment, where we will have several conversations and interviews with you. An exciting case study will give you insights into our daily business as consultants.

Getting to know
each other

On that day, we will get to know you a little better and you will have the opportunity to learn who we are. After having successfully completed this level together, we will come to our decision. Given the ideal case, you and we were successful: We will make you an offer on that same day and will be looking forward to welcoming you as a new colleague in our company.

Helping you
with your decision

Following our offer, we will provide an additional introduction day giving you the opportunity to get in touch with more colleagues and to have a few personal conversations. If possible, you can join a team meeting, and we will be glad to organize a joint lunch. We want you to be confident with your decision professionally and personally!

Joining us

As a junior consultant

People with various backgrounds join us. You can start as a junior consultant right after graduation, learning quickly and a lot in a short time. A PhD degree is welcome, but not a must, as our vanities with academic titles and positions are limited and you won't find any hierarchies based upon them. However, an MBA degree in addition to a technical or even an exotic course of study, for example, is a good thing!

As a young professional

You can also join as a so-called "young professional" with about 3 to 5 years of professional experience – either from another consultancy or from industry – and you have a quick start as a consultant. Provided you are even more senior, we should definitely talk about you joining us as a project manager with lots of responsibility for projects, team-members and budget.

Growing with us

Right after joining us, you will start with our induction program. The intense training-on-the-job will be complemented by individual coaching in seminars. Your responsibilities will include working on national and international projects up to a leading function - depending on your individual experience. But: We will only know what we have been missing once we have got to know you!

Your new

From university straight
to management consulting

After having studied economics in Germany, New Zealand and Hong Kong, I definitely wanted to join a management consultancy. The important thing for me was to work with a company not only developing strategies, but really implementing them. I don't regret my decision to join Barkawi - I'm extremely happy here.

Great team and
fascinating projects

My colleagues at Barkawi's are super-professional - but also really nice and with a sense of humor. With many of them, I enjoy a good relationship also in private life. I am working on various tasks with customers from the most different industries - from manufacturers of the smallest electronic high-tech devices to equipment constructors from the steel industry, there is just everything.

Your development

No coffee brewing and
the like

Even when you are new to consulting, you will work on projects immediately. You won’t be brewing coffee, copying papers or the like. You will be led and trained while on projects. As an individual feedback, you will receive several assessments per year. We discuss your project work on an individual level and take down the results on a multi-page evaluation file. Together, we can further develop your strengths and eliminate any potential weaknesses.

Taking over

Within our team, each member carries a lot of responsibility, and each one is valuable and important. Those who can handle this responsibility successfully are our preferred candidates. We do not stick to calendars but have a close look at the actual results, which is why we do not have any fixed 2-year career steps. With us, you will grow consciously with the responsibilities you take over and rise to the next level – a deep learning curve is guaranteed!


Because of demanding tasks and with the support of your colleagues, you will be learning immensely fast “on the job” within the shortest time. You will get to know our tools & techniques but also our way of thinking and working in practice. In addition, we offer bespoke coaching and seminars with selected trainers.

Fit for your daily
consultancy work

If you have any specific needs on top of that, which create a win-win situation for us, then we will be more than open to realize that. Our goal is to support you in your professional and personal development and to make you fit for project work during the choppy daily routine of a consultant. We are sure you are bringing everything else with you!
