We are looking for a dynamic, driven Executive Assistant (EA) who can work with little direction to support several of our most senior consultants, Partners and Principals, at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a global management consulting firm ranked the #4 Best Company to Work For by Fortune Magazine. At BCG, EAs are an essential part of the office and are expected to grow throughout their careers, building and improving their skills to match the evolving needs of BCG and our clients.
A successful EA manages and assumes responsibility for the Partners’ agendas, effectively and proactively prioritizing on behalf of the Partners in appropriate situations. We need you to identify and manage the right priorities and processes to ensure that the consultants we support have what they need to seamlessly serve the needs of our clients. You make decisions and give guidance to others based on knowledge of the client and Partner preferences.
This position involves booking (and unbooking) travel, scheduling (and rescheduling) meetings, keeping track of time and expenses, supporting the case team process, and generally keeping up with the fast pace of our most senior consulting staff.
While the consultants spend most of their time at the client site, back here at home base (aka the Denver office) you will be surrounded by an Administrative Team that consists of a group of really smart, team-oriented people. EAs actively participate in office life, are flexible and willing to help fellow Business Services Team (BST) members, and collaborate across functions. They serve as mentors to more junior members of the Admin team. We work hard together, and we go out of our way to support each other – we want everyone to be successful, individually and as a team.
We won’t define a career path for you – some of the EAs we’ve hired in this role have gone on to have long and successful careers as Senior Executive Assistants at BCG; others have gone into work in one of our many Practice Areas; some have managed teams or rotated through a number of other functions. Your career growth opportunity will only be limited by your investment.

- Bachelor’s degree, strongly preferred

- Minimum of 3 years experience in a fast paced environment (really fast paced!) supporting senior executives, strongly preferred
