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 of challenges. Our involvement ranges from setting the strategy to realizing results together with our client.”

Exposure to C-level – “We often work with senior client stakeholders. Usually, our clients are CXOs or business area managers. 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

I am extremely pleased with my Axholmen internship, as I was immediately involved in projects and got to experience working in real-world situations as a management consultant. Among other things, I have engaged in data analysis, conducted customer interviews, and presented in front of clients, which has given me invaluable knowledge for the future. Beyond the work, the fantastic community at the office has impressed me, and therefore I enthusiastically recommend anyone interested in Axholmen to apply.

While completing my internship at Axholmen I experienced a combination of challenging projects and a great culture that provided me with a progressive learning curve. From day one, I felt encouraged and had the opportunity to actively contribute to our results, gaining an invaluable experience akin to that of a seasoned management consultant. This exposure to projects and clients, combined with the great colleagues, made my decision to continue my journey with Axholmen after graduation an easy one.

My internship at Axholmen has been a real highlight during my time as a student. The culture made it effortless to become a part of the team during the first weeks and the amount of responsibility and support that I have gotten could not have been better. I have worked with and learned from highly skilled colleagues with many years of experience and my work has made a real strategic impact for the customer. All in all, Axholmen is a great place for any aspiring or current management consultant due to the very exciting projects, result-oriented and entrepreneurial culture, and the accumulated knowledge within the firm.

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

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.

The best thing about Axholmen is the open environment where everybody, from day one, are encouraged to participate in the continuous development of the firm. Add to this a mix of interesting clients, challenging projects, and competent colleagues and you have a winner, where personal development is inevitable. The overall grade for Axholmen is 5/5!

My name is Gustav 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.
