What’s best about working as a management consultant at Axholmen?

Interesting, varying assignments – “We work with international companies of different sizes, active in a range of different industries and facing a variety challenges. Our involvement ranges from setting the strategy to realising results together with our client.”

Exposure to C-level – “We often work with senior client stakeholders. Usually, our clients are CXOs or business area manager. We deliver our projects in small teams where all members are exposed to the key stakeholders.”

Work-life balance – ”Our clients demand a very high standard. Our focus is the results, not the hours worked, allowing you time for a life outside work. Our office is located in central Stockholm, and many of our clients also call the Stockholm region home, which means relatively few travel days.”

Inclusive culture – “We have an inclusive culture that is built on common respect for each other. Our non-hierarchical organization makes management more personal and individual.”

Participation in business development – “We encourage all our consultants to contribute to Axholmen’s success. Everyone in the company actively participates in strategy, business development, and sales work.”

Performance-based business model – “We focus on performance and value. We like to link our commercial model to the value we create. The business model helps us work pragmatically and focus on the things that create value.”

Some of our colleagues

The combination of challenging projects and great culture provided me with a progressive learning curve, I really liked that I was encouraged and given the opportunity to really contribute to the results.

Olle Forsberg, Master student at Chalmers University of Technology Intern at Axholmen during autumn 2022 and then employed after graduation.

I was really impressed about the engagement Axholmen put in creating a great experience in the first weeks of my internship, that were packed with education and, on day three, I was introduced and integrated to a project team with high commitment and great atmosphere. In the end, I really felt like a management consultant that could contribute to the results-oriented delivery of said team, which was my ultimate goal in doing the internship.

Hugo Durelius, Master student at HHS/SSE Intern at Axholmen during spring 2022

Axholmen has a unique combination of strategic high value projects, a steep learning curve for employees, and an incredibly great culture. I felt like part of the team from day 1.

What I like most about Axholmen is the fantastic culture we have in combination with all the exciting projects. Already as an associate, you are encouraged to participate in business development through internal commitments, which is a lot of fun! At the same time, you are surrounded by supportive colleagues and can easily combine being a management consultant with a life outside of work.

Add to this a mix of interesting clients, challenging projects, and competent colleagues and you have a winner, where personal development is inevitable. Overall grade for Axholmen is 5/5!

My name is Alexander and I have recently been in the above-described recruitment process. All consultants at Axholmen have, in addition to their role as a consultant, the opportunity to take internal responsibility for driving the development of Axholmen as a company. As a new addition to the team, I have taken shared reasonability for our Associate recruitment, including hosting student events and recruitment days.
