I do not think there is a better value-for-time volunteering experience than being a 180 Degrees Consultant. It hits multiple birds with one stone – work experience, making a difference, and professional training. Why do these things separately when you can do them simultaneously?

FAQ

Of course. Only half of our consultants have an economic background. Our consultants also have backgrounds in engineering, mathematics, physics, computer science, psychology and humanities and social sciences. Interdisciplinarity is very important to us and is appreciated and encouraged accordingly!

Not much! What matters are your core competencies, your motivation, and your eagerness to learn!
To ensure that you grow in this project and are able to deliver the best results, your team will include beside your other teammates:

  • Team Manager, that will guide your through the project
  • Consultant Director, that will support your team in every step
  • Mentor from one of our Corporate Partners, that will help you with extensive experience and best practices
      •  
As our projects always go through different phases, which take up different amounts of time, this cannot be said in general terms. Nevertheless, it can be assumed that on average about 10 hours per week and per consultant are spent to make a project a success.
The selection of applicants is based on the degree of suitability and motivation for working as a consultant at 180 Degrees Consulting. Various skills that we consider important for the engagement will be assessed on the basis of your written application and your personal interview. Although we also collect grades in the online application, these only play a minor role in our selection – they are mainly asked for statistical reasons.
As soon as your first project is finished, your time with us is of course not over! You will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills as a project manager within the framework of another consulting project. In addition, you can also get involved internally in the board of directors to help ensure that our association remains what it already is: great.
