Business Consulting is the preferred consultancy of the Bayer Group. With more than 100 strategic projects per year worldwide and across all divisions and functions, we support the top management by shaping strategy, organizational development, and performance improvement. We thus help drive the continuous development of one of the largest life science companies and have a tangible impact on Bayer’s contribution to healthcare and nutrition in the world.
Business Consulting is one of the biggest in-house consultancies with a set-up similar to external consultancies. We operate globally with 160 consultants and offices in Leverkusen, Whippany, St. Louis, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Singapore. Our specialized practice areas include Research & Development, Supply Chain & Manufacturing, Marketing & Sales, and Business Transformation. Together, we make a tangible impact on health and nutrition.
The team consists of both excellent university graduates and senior hires, all coming from a diverse range of educational, cultural and gender backgrounds.
The key to our contribution to Bayer’s success is that we are not only consultants, but also colleagues to our clients. As a constant partner, we offer in-depth expertise, confidentiality, and a personal commitment to our own company’s success. In return, our clients welcome us with trust and collaboration.
As part of our team, you will therefore not only enjoy an environment of excellence and purpose, but also one of team spirit and fun. We also believe that a healthy work-life balance is the foundation for lasting performance and success.
We are always looking for interns, recent graduates and experienced hires with fluent English skills, very good academic and/or professional achievement records, international experience, and a willingness to travel on a project basis.
In terms of your personal development and career, the mission of Business Consulting is to develop future leaders for the Bayer Group. The wide variety of topics, fast project rotations (approximately every 3-6 months), early responsibility and frequent training will ensure your accelerated development.
At the same time, staying within the Bayer ecosystem allows you to strategically shape your career. By getting to know the company better project by project, you can identify your preferred leadership position and directly work towards it, building a lasting network and building up specific knowledge.
After 3-5 years with Business Consulting, you would typically decide on and rotate into your preferred succession position – as about a quarter of our team does each year. However, the timing is ultimately up to you, and you may choose to continue progressing your career within Business Consulting.
Your development within Business Consulting will follow established career paths that are based on traditional management consulting career models and lead progressively to greater expertise and responsibility.
