Job Description 2023 – Manager – Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice  

Who we are 

As a global consulting partnership in more than 40 countries, our people make us who we are. We’re individuals with different passions and strengths who take as much joy in the work we do as from those we work with. Over the years we’ve fostered a culture in which we are united by shared values—passion, solidarity, generosity, curiosity and boldness—and these come alive in the work we do and how we do it.   

Together, we know our people are our difference—for our clients, our colleagues, and our communities.  That’s why we take pride in being individual and inclusive and create a place where everyone can bring their full self to work. 

The Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice teams with companies across biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, distributors and pharmacies, payers and providers, and consumer health to address their strategic and operational issues.  

Make your mark in our Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice as a Manager

Are you ready to: 

Lead a dedicated and diverse set of people as we offer honest advice and practical guidance to our clients? 

Continue learning and growing by taking advantage of every opportunity available to you? 

Own your ideas and contribute as member of core client and project teams? 

Join a company which prides itself on its shared values and inclusive culture?  

Be the difference and make it happen? 

If so, we are ready to help you: 

Discover. Collaborating with our clients across a range of industries and service practices, our people are always learning.  At Kearney, you can take advantage of various opportunities for specialized training to develop and broaden your industry, process, and product expertise.  Being rooted in expertise, we know our people deserve opportunities to go places and further their exposure to the business world. All managers participate in training and learning programs design specifically to build the increasingly complex skill set required for career development.  

Grow. We believe in the power of apprenticeship. At Kearney, our goal is to involve you in all phases of the consulting process, helping your hone your professional skills.  Through both, our structured programs and apprenticeship model, you will continue to learn and develop every day.  After all, we are here to help you not just perform, but to thrive in your career.

 Who you are 

Insightful. Inquisitive. Collaborative. But we’re also looking for problem-solvers who think further than that, who don’t accept the first thing in front of them, and who are always unapologetically themselves.

Be analytically inclined and love solving problems
