Oliver Wyman Support Professionals have varied career development paths, within and across functions – for a richer career experience. We invest extensively in training, personal and professional development to support your growth.

Who we are

There is a spirit at Oliver Wyman that you will find nowhere else

It comes from people who believe that they are creating new possibilities for our clients, themselves, our communities – and for each other.

Visit an Oliver Wyman office anywhere in the world and you will feel it: the buzz of people who are doing work that matters. There is no corporate mold to fit and hierarchy doesn’t get in the way. Everybody contributes. Join us if you are excited by new challenges and at ease working across cultures.

You’ll find interesting people who laugh easily, speak their minds and measure success by what is accomplished, not how many hours are worked.  We are looking for people who want to grow and develop…people who thrive on teamwork and enjoy learning new skills. 

We work in a collaborative fast-paced environment to produce lasting change for our clients.

Clients bring us their greatest challenges – problems that global companies, non-profit organizations and even government institutions can’t always solve without outside expertise. Oliver Wyman assigns teams of experts to tackle each part of their complex problems and develop new solutions that change what’s possible for our clients, their industries, and society.  The constant evolution and innovation in our business creates a stimulating, exciting and fast-paced environment for our Support Professionals.

What kind of impact do you want to have?  Our Support Professionals are critical to the ongoing success of our business. They shape the firm, including transforming how we think about inclusion and diversity, helping us leverage new technologies, and initiating new forms of collaboration (to name a few).
