Spring 2023 project cycle
“There are enough charities to solve the world’s problems. They just need a hand to reach their potential.” (Nat Ware-Founder & CEO of 180 Degrees Consulting)
180 Degrees Consulting is the world’s largest university-based consultancy and we consult NGOs all around the world. We work to help improve education, reduce homelessness, and alleviate poverty through providing non-profit organizations the support and expertise they need to improve and expand their services. At the same time, we help develop a generation of future leaders committed to making a difference. Since 2017, 180 Degrees Consulting Helsinki has helped local NGOs increase their social development and impact.
We are now looking for ambitious student consultants who are interested in working together with Finnish NGOs to solve challenges they may be facing. Student consultants will be utilizing their skills and expertise for a 10-week consultancy project running from February to May 2022. Since our first project cycle, student consultants from 180 Degrees Consulting Helsinki have gone off to work at acclaimed consulting firms as well as other renowned organizations that aim to create social impact.
Why join our projects?
We will be recruiting teams of four to five highly capable university students or recent graduates to collaborate on consulting projects. Each project will be working with a different NGO in Finland to provide potential solutions to a specific problem with which the organization is faced. Student consultants are expected to dedicate 4-5 hours/week to the project. Project groups will also be mentored by consultants and managers from top consulting firms, namely Bain & Company, Accenture, Reddal, and StrategyCo.Global.
