Is a high willingness to travel a precondition for working at Platinion?Working at BCG Platinion means engagement within national and international projects. You will therefore normally work on-site with the client from Monday to Thursday. Friday is the so-called "office day" at BCG Platinion, where, if the project situation allows, you can work for the client from the BCG Platinion office. This makes exchanges with colleagues easier and helps develop BCG Platinion.

In extended projects, there is typically the possibility to occasionally change the composition of the project team.

How can I develop professionally and personally?We take your professional and personal development very seriously. Based on your work evaluations, we address your potential for development within regular conversations and decide with you on participation in internal and external training initiatives, allowing you to develop further in a goal-oriented manner.
