Meet 3con – what you can expect

As a consultant with 3con, you are part of an effective team in the challenging environment of an organically growing top management consultancy. We meet the highest internal and external standards, but we keep our feet on the ground. Assuming your autonomy and commitment, an inspiring and highly professional environment with the opportunity, but also the obligation, of personal development. In our small project teams, we give you support, but no ‘double bottom’. You will get a lot of freedom, but no ‘hiding places’.  We see ourselves as an incubator for the development of your talents and offer you a long-term perspective. You may and must define your place in our team along our respective development paths to a consultant, project manager, senior expert and partner.


The team

At 3con you will find colleagues from a wide variety of disciplines, from natural scientists and economists to humanists with different cultural backgrounds. This interaction of real characters creates a creative and effective working atmosphere with a pronounced collegiality and strong team spirit.

Teamwork is promoted by a lean and deliberately flat company structure. We do not practice a strict "up or out" or an incremental promotion system in a multi-layered hierarchy at 3con. We strive to develop mature personalities. Through direct transfer of experience and close interaction of consultants and partners we facilitate the optimal individual development of our consultants.

The projects

You will gain project experience in strategy and implementation projects with a typical duration of three to twelve months. The work is characterized by a low share of routine work. Assuming your commitment, you will go through a steep learning curve, which is fed by the different and challenging tasks. The project work usually takes place on site at the client in teams with a typical size of two to six consultants. Due to our flexible and decentralized approach, you are free to choose your place of residence, but must be willing to travel.


Smart, creative, pragmatic, human – our requirements

Strengthen our team with your outstanding analytical and creative intelligence as well as your authentic personality! You enjoy solving complex problems in a team and are distinguished by your willingness to perform and implement. You have an excellent university degree and ideally have additional qualifications such as a doctorate, MBA or work experience in industry or management consulting.
Language skills that go beyond business fluency in German and English are just as welcome as intercultural experience.
Although natural scientists are currently our strongest faction, we are expressly open to applicants from all faculties - your suitability as a consultant and fit in the 3con team are the key factors for our decision.

Consulting for adults – our understanding of work-life balance

When not only partners, but also consultants and project managers stand in the middle of family life, an often-stated claim becomes reality. At 3con, we perform the highest level - without cutting corners, but unagitated and without midnight team meetings and weekend work.
Management consulting remains a challenging profession - being aware of this, we support voluntary work and compatibility with family life wherever we can. In order to ensure that this aspiration is matched by tangible measures, we are regularly certified by the "Career and Family" initiative sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs. Our employees and alumni have named us a "Top Company" on kununu, the largest employer rating portal.



Your way to us – the application process

You can send us your complete application documents all year round - the easiest way is as a PDF application by e-mail. If your profile is convincing, we will invite you to an interview day. You will go through several interviews with a project manager or partner. Depending on the course of the first three interviews, we will individually design your further application process with a second round of interviews and a larger case study including presentation. You will always get a final feedback - and in the best case an offer to join 3con.
If you are interested, we would be pleased to get to know you.
