WORKING AT OXBOW PARTNERS
A career with Oxbow Partners combines the best of “big consulting” with the excitement and creativity of the start-up world. From day 1 you’ll work on strategy projects that are critical to our clients and interact with top-level executives. Every project we take on is unique and requires its own approach: you’ll find the work both challenging and rewarding.
We are particularly proud of the impact our work has had since we were founded in 2015; we have helped build a startup partnership platform for the world’s largest reinsurer (Munich Re Digital Partners), helped design a strategy for a digital business that was bought for one of the largest multiples ever seen in the industry, and much more.
Our ambition is to be the most trusted, best informed, and most entrepreneurial insurance advisory firm in Europe (and have more fun delivering than any of our competitors). Your contribution will be much broader than at one of the big firms: you’ll be both a consultant and a business builder. From the start we will encourage you to network in the market, support our marketing strategy, or sit on one of our internal task forces. You could also get involved with our two products – Market Intelligence (a research product) and Magellan (a digital platform).
WHO DO WE HIRE?
We hire enthusiastic individuals who can demonstrate they are analytical problem solvers, collaborative team players, and have the entrepreneurial drive
to help build a business.
You must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and relish the opportunity to understand complex topics quickly and communicate about them
with authority. You must be comfortable finding your way through uncertainty.
We look for a strong record of academic achievement (2:1 at a good university) and evidence of success in areas such as enterprise, sport or the arts is highly desirable. Prior consulting experience and insurance knowledge is not a requirement. In fact, we are sceptical about applicants who say that they’ve
always dreamt of a career in insurance consulting.
We embrace diversity and are proud to be an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds,
perspectives, and skills.
Applications for full time graduate positions are open and assessed on a rolling basis. To apply you will need to upload your CV (1 page max) and answer the following question:
“In a year where COVID-19 has disrupted almost every area of life, how have you overcome a challenge posed by the pandemic and what do you see as its
lasting impact?” (max 300 words)
Successful candidates will be invited to a Round 1 interview. The complete interview process is as follows:
- Round 1: Initial screening interview (45 minutes) consisting of a CV discussion followed by a brief case study
- Round 2: Business case study (2 hours)
- Round 3: Final interview (45 minutes) with one of our Partners
