Strategy & Business Consulting
Strategy & Business Consulting unites the overarching strategy development and internal management consultancy of the Bayer Group.
The Strategy team supports our Board of Management and top executives in helping to specify the long-term vision and aspirations of the Bayer Group and in defining a consistent strategy to achieve those goals. The Business Consulting team conducts projects to address various types of strategic challenges for the top management of the Bayer Group.
Job opportunities exist primarily in the Business Consulting team – read on to get to know us better and for all the details you will need to join our team.
As the preferred consultancy of the Bayer Group, Business Consulting is “consulting for a better life”. We support the top management in over 100 strategic projects per year worldwide, across all divisions and functions – primarily in the areas of strategy design, organizational development and performance improvement. We thus help drive the continuous development of one of the largest life science companies and have a tangible impact on Bayer’s contribution to healthcare and nutrition in the world.
To make this possible, Business Consulting is one of the biggest in-house consultancies with a set-up similar to external consultancies. Our 160 consultants are located around the globe, with offices in Leverkusen, Whippany (NYC), St. Louis, São Paulo, and Shanghai. Functionally, we are organized into departments along the value chain – Research & Development, Product Supply, Marketing & Sales, and Business Transformation. The team consists of both excellent university graduates and senior hires, all coming from a diverse range of educational, cultural and gender backgrounds.
Key to our contribution to Bayer’s success is that we are not just consultants, but also colleagues to our clients. As a constant partner, we offer in-depth expertise, confidentiality and a personal dedication to the success of our own company. In return, our clients welcome us with trust and collaboration.
As part of our team, you will therefore not only enjoy an environment of excellence and purpose, but also one with great team spirit and fun. Furthermore, we are convinced that a healthy balance between work and personal life is the foundation for lasting performance and success.
With regards to your personal development and career, the mission of Business Consulting beyond delivering on projects is developing future leaders for the Bayer Group. The high variety of topics, fast project rotations approximately every 3-6 months, early responsibility, as well as frequent trainings will ensure your accelerated development.
At the same time, staying within the Bayer ecosystem will allow you to be truly strategic about your career. By getting to know the company better project by project, you can identify your preferred leadership position and directly work towards it by forming a lasting network and building up specific knowledge.
After 3-5 years with Strategy & Business Consulting, you would usually decide on and rotate into your preferred consecutive position – as does about a quarter of our team every year. But the timing is ultimately up to you and you could also choose to continue progressing your career within Business Consulting.
