YOU'RE GOOD AT

Providing proactive support to senior BCG and BST leaders with internal/external commitments in a fast-paced and dynamic client service environment. Your primary responsibilities are as follows; however, some days will be more administrative-focused than others:

  • Processing timesheets and expenses on a timely basis
  • Proactively anticipating and solving problems before they arise
  • Maintaining confidentiality - you will be privy to sensitive information
Proactively leaning in to support high-leverage activities for executives and their case teams (this will vary by your stakeholders' needs):
  • Actively supporting business development efforts
  • Conducting research and gathering information to help problem solve questions
  • Assisting with the preparation and proofreading of client team materials, including slides, proposals, and onboarding decks
  • Anything else you (or your stakeholder) determine necessary - we encourage you to be creative and think outside the box
  • Acting as a thought partner and trusted advisor to your stakeholders' teams
  • Making sure your stakeholders know the information they need to know to best set them up for success with their external and internal (BCG) clients
  • Enabling your stakeholders to make the best use of their time
  • Taking initiative to proactively bring to-dos or priorities "from the back burner to the front burner" for your stakeholders
Building effective working relationships with your key stakeholders and your peers as you work together to get things done. This will be crucial to your success in your career at BCG.
  • Partnering closely with other AAs in your network to build deep relationships and progress scheduling for complex meetings and events. Many of your peers will be supporting stakeholders who may work closely with your stakeholders
  • Building relationships across the office with other internal teams (e.g., HR, IT, Office Services) as our footprint grows

Our business management and operations team members work to ensure that BCG is running smoothly, efficiently, and productively. We are made up of executive and administrative (or case team) assistants, visual service artists, receptionists, facilities staff, and the team leaders and office coordinators who manage these operations and business management jobs.
