    This is what our colleague Diana says about working at Axholmen

    Axholmen puts great value on involving all colleagues in developing the firm. Therefore, there is a strong incentive for everyone in the company to contribute and continue their own personal development. As a junior consultant, you will take responsibility early on in projects with support from senior colleagues. My first time here at Axholmen has really exceeded my expectations. I felt like a part of the team even before my first day, and I have been faced with challenging and interesting work tasks.

    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. This includes hosting a student event and the recruitment day during fall.

    Some of our colleagues

    Being able to combine critical projects with a life outside of work is truly what makes Axholmen special. Our vision is that management consulting should be a long-term career choice, therefore it is important that your own development and well-being is prioritized. In addition, there is a strong team cohesion where each person makes a difference – both for the team and further development of Axhomen.

    Oliver Back

    At Axholmen, working with challenging tasks in teams with fun and experienced colleagues offers great personal development opportunities. I appreciate the feeling of being a boutique firm experiencing high growth, where each coworker plays a crucial role in the company and for its development. As a junior consultant this means that it is possible to participate in non-project related work – such as recruitment, marketing, or sales.

    Viktor Modrow

    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. Overall grade for Axholmen is 5/5!
