What You'll Do

WHAT WE NEED


Disruptive technologies and convergences of digital thinking are revolutionizing the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications industries (TMT). BCG continues to expand its team of content experts supporting its global telecommunication sector.

The TMT practice is currently looking for an individual at the Expert Project Leader or Expert Associate Director level who has significant experience in Telecommunications B2B.

A qualified individual will play a critical role in enriching firm expertise on this topic and in bringing this expertise to our telco clients.

Contribute to the business development of the telecommunication sector: 


  • Contribute and drive leads and proposals together with the partners of the practice; 

  • Assist in development of proposals from end to end around specific topics; 

  • Engage with the development of additional business beyond the delivery of recommendations on client engagements;

  • Develop the topic agenda, create respective content and foster awareness of BCG’s competence 

Build expertise in our telecommunication sector (B2B) within BCG and increase BCG’s profile externally: 

  • Develop and contribute to BCG’s intellectual capital – work on BCG content projects to create new techniques and/or capture new ideas; 

  • Build and maintain “fast packs” related to core telco topics so there is an ever-available library of educational materials for internal and client usage;

  • Responsible for supporting the telecommunication sector in writing external reports, papers, and social media contributions of its partners in concert with the TMT practice’s marketing lead; 

  • Identify conferences for BCG’s attendance and help coordinate our participation.

Work jointly with BCG and client project leaders, bring expertise to the team, both on issues specific to the industry and on questions asked by the client;

Support multiple case teams, co-lead modules, especially those in need for broad experience and hands-on approach; 

Ensure the quality of the work, and the relevance of any synthesis and recommendations. Challenge work in progress, results, and re-orient any analyses if needed.

  • A minimum of 8 years of relevant work experience in technology firms working on relevant product builds

  • Distinctive knowledge in business development focused on Information Communication Technology or Internet of Things

Experience in identifying need for and subsequent building of ICT or IOT products, businesses, or partnerships; including creating product definitions, developing partnership agreements, and assisting with recruiting

No preference on degree 

The Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) practice works with companies across the digital device, software, IT services, TV, publishing, information services, entertainment and telecommunication sectors to make sense of the unrelenting velocity of technological and consumer change they face.

We partner with clients to transform their industries, define winning business models, shape their value proposition and go-to-market approach, enhance their operational competitiveness, and create sustained advantage.

Experts come from diverse backgrounds, with expertise usually gained outside of BCG in either industry, government, academia, or specialized consulting.
