Our most vital resource is our people. That’s why Human Resources is one of our most vital teams: From recruiting to career development for BCGers, and from training and mobility support to staffing (assigning our consultants to client casework), the Human Resources Team plays a decisive role in making BCG not just a company, but a Group in which each individual can be their best.

We have an opening for a flexible, dynamic G&A HR Operations Junior Specialist to join our G&A HR Services Team (temporary position for 13 months). In this role, you’ll support all operational and administrative HR processes along the employee journey (e.g., providing administrative support for employee on- and offboarding, issuing contracts, amendments, and certificates, handling benefits administration, and maintaining personnel files and our HR system in the three topic clusters Lifecycle, Benefits & Development, and Absence & Mobility). As our team is new and being ramped up in the months to come, you will also help us set up a fully functioning and efficient HR unit.

The field of activities within our G&A HR Operations team is as diverse as our employees. With your professional and above-average service mindset, you will act as a direct contact for employees and other HR teams, assisting them with frequently asked general questions such as regarding part-time work, maternity/parental leave, and changes in personal information or status, in addition to employees’ individual questions. You’ll perform the above-mentioned tasks with the support of and in close collaboration with the colleagues in your team and the Centers of Expertise. You’ll also be responsible for correctly entering and maintaining information in our HR system (Workday), ensuring that this is done within the required time and at the highest quality. For selected processes with shared unit responsibility, you’ll collaborate closely with other HR units to ensure that respective employee requests are handled to our internal clients’ satisfaction.
