Why Ginkgo

How we work

How we work

Our consultants work in close collaboration with our clients – internationally and on site. As a management consultancy, we support our clients throughout various project phases on longer-term engagements. Thus, we recognize that excellence is best achieved in a satisfying setting and we offer you a balanced work environment and regular company events.

How you develop

How you develop

At Ginkgo, we work in small teams with flat hierarchies. From day one you will be exposed to the client’s senior management and will take on responsibility. We believe that your development will benefit most from daily work on projects and being surrounded by bright people. However, just as important, we invest in training to grow our knowledge and expertise.

How we advance

How we advance

We are entrepreneurs – always eager to move forward. Working at Ginkgo demands full dedication to the client. We encourage you to show the same passion when it comes to actively determining Ginkgo’s future. Each of us embraces the possibility and accepts the responsibility of shaping Ginkgo’s strategy and market position.

What we are looking for

Each of us has his or her own very unique personality and our backgrounds can differ strongly.
We greatly appreciate this diversity and believe that it enriches our company and our corporate culture.

In candidates we look for certain traits that all our consultants share and which make you succeed at Ginkgo.
Based on these criteria we ‘hand-pick’ each potential new colleague.

Internal Motivation

We are a relatively small firm and so are the teams we typically work in. Thus, we are seeking candidates who drive consulting with passion and embrace new challenges. To succeed, high motivation, flexibility, and an entrepreneurial can-do attitude are crucial.

Experience

As we work in complex project environments, often on exposed positions with the client’s senior management, we look for candidates with a strong record of work experience in (management) consulting. However, we make exceptions for outstanding graduates.

Dedication

Ginkgo relies on strong working relationships with the client and amongst its consultants. We seek candidates who are truly passionate about their engagement and are committed to delivering best-in class solutions – both externally and internally.

How to Join

Ginkgo is continuously looking for bright and motivated people to join us working in a demanding
and entrepreneurial environment.  If you are confident that you have what it needs to join our company, we
encourage you to apply.

If possible, we would like to give you the opportunity to get in touch with more colleagues and have a few personal conversations over a joint lunch.
