Changing for growth and growing with change
BASF Management Consulting: the internal management consultancy of the BASF Group.
BASF Management Consulting is the internal management consultancy of the BASF Group located in Ludwigshafen, Monheim (near Düsseldorf), Hong Kong, Singapore, Florham Park (USA) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). We advise our clients – the BASF top management – globally in various commercial, organizational, post-merger integration, carve-out, and change projects.
Our objective is to be the preferred and trusted partner of BASF units worldwide in general management questions.
We are a team of approximately 150 colleagues – with diverse academic, professional and cultural backgrounds – coming together to work with our clients on relevant and sustainable solutions. We maintain our independence and build credibility by taking personal responsibility for our actions. Pragmatic, structured and composed; we strike the right tone with our clients, between colleagues, over hierarchical boundaries and working areas.
We want to meet your aspirations, both during the application process and later on. We will invite you to one of our locations and take the time to get to know you.
As part of the recruitment process, you will participate in individual conversations over one day with the leadership team of BASF Management Consulting and our consultants.
We look forward to getting to know you, including your experience and expertise, by discussing case studies based on actual project work.
You are grounded and stand on your own two feet. You enjoy working in an international team and meeting clients. You like to get on with the job and want to grow with us. You are a genuine person, an expert without airs and graces, open-minded and hands-on.
For our consulting team, we are looking for young professionals as well as experienced consultants.
You should have completed a degree with excellent results in Business Administration or a Masters in Science with a major in Business. Ideally, you have up to five years of practical experience at a leading management consultancy or a related environment working in the areas of sales & marketing, organization (structures and processes), change management and/or post-merger integration & carve-out.
We offer you the chance to develop your skills across the areas of commercial excellence, structures and processes, post-merger integration and carve-out as well as change management. Through projects in these areas, you will gain a comprehensive overview of the different aspects of the BASF business.
In your day-to-day work, you will have the freedom to take initiative and the chance to take over responsibility early on. Depending on your previous experience, you can directly start as project manager.
You will benefit from a unique spectrum of challenges and collaboration within a team of top performers.
You will get to know the BASF world first-hand, gaining insights and perspectives you simply would not get elsewhere. And you will have the opportunity to develop your network within top management at BASF.
We advise the top management of BASF worldwide for all general management topics. To solve their challenges, we play various roles in the organization, ranging from project manager to analyst, from concept developer to trainer.
We are organized into four main practice groups that are aligned with core topics of our management:
- Commercial Excellence: Supporting BASF business units to generate sustainable and profitable growth
- Organizational Excellence: Optimizing and redefining organizational structures and processes to support strategy and business model implementation
- Post-Merger Integration / Carve-Out: Managing mid- to large-scale acquisitions and divestments for BASF and further develop relevant expertise within the company
- Change Excellence: Planning, developing and implementing change initiatives with BASF leadership
We are located in Germany and Hong Kong and execute projects around the world, depending on the location of our clients.
Our work attracts a lot of attention from BASF top management. For you, that means attractive opportunities to demonstrate your potential and successfully continue your career path at BASF after having gained unique experience during your time with BASF Management Consulting.
We expect you to contribute in answering the questions that our clients face, creatively and with a focus on solutions. In return, you can expect continuous personal development.
A wealth of opportunities exists here for you to develop, both personally and professionally – opportunities that we are looking forward to exploring together with you.
“The work at BASF Management Consulting helped me to prepare for a career and develop an international network in the company. India is particularly important for my role, and being able to leverage experiences and contacts from my time as consultant in this country proved very valuable!
The variety of projects enabled me to experience various business models and customer industries. This gives you a unique overview of the activities of BASF and helps you to come up with solutions from different perspectives.
The structured and systematic approach to solving problems, paired with deep methodical concepts, is an excellent preparation for developing further into BASF!"
