L.E.K. Consulting, Australia offers the Summer Associate Program to undergraduate students who are interested in gaining insight into an Associate career. This internship involves spending 10 weeks working as a Summer Associate commencing in late November, allowing the intern to experience case work in our office environment and meet our team. These positions ares available in our Sydney and Melbourne offices.
The Summer Associate role is similar to that of the Associate role. Associates are the core of an L.E.K. case team. The insights that L.E.K. develops to help our clients win are based upon the very strong research and analytical skills of our Associates. Some of the Associates specific responsibilities include:
- Gathering primary data on markets, competitors and customers through database and Internet searches, market research and other commercial reports, internal client data, and telephone and in-person interviews.
- Developing detailed strategic and financial analysis, which will be utilized to determine the recommendation. Examples include: developing a spreadsheet model of market growth and competitor share, developing a valuation model for a company or product using discounted cash flow analysis, or determining probability distributions of an acquisition value.
- Working with the case team to derive insights, conclusions and recommendations based on the analyses. A Summer Associate must transform what he or she has learned into a valuable and integral element of the client’s strategic direction.
Following your intensive orientation program you will be a contributing case team member helping to solve our clients most challenging strategic business issues.
The Summer Associate Program at L.E.K. Consulting, Australia is open for applications from penultimate year students from any degree discipline.
