Growth with 4C

Through flat hierarchies and small project teams, we promote rapid integration and quickly provide insights into all levels of project work. In this way, you quickly gain experience and expertise, and we provide the necessary transparency regarding your personal development.

We attach great importance to a lively company culture

And that also beyond the projects. Therefore, we invest in our organization and employees. We value an appealing, high-quality and modern working environment that promotes togetherness and exchange. We think that comprehensive and regular communication about the development of our company and the training of our employees is as important as the goals of our customers. In this way we create time and space for your growth and that of our company. Us, by this we mean the partners and employees who acquire shares in the company at an early stage. This is also essential for us.

Do you have a doctorate, master's degree or other qualifications in mind?

We have answers for that, too. Because we see consulting as a lifelong career model. So feel free to contact us and we'll talk about the possibilities.

To live up to the motto "GROW to GLOW", we have support structures and formats that are designed not only to encourage our consultants on their way, but also to make them shine. Feel free to read more about this.

Your personal career path

Focus You

We can't promise you everything. But all applicants can rely on support, motivation and assistance in a variety of forms - from day one:

  • Two mentors are available to you as contact persons: A senior project manager for the professional start on the first project and a "buddy" for all kinds of situations in the consulting business.
  • Support meetings take place on a quarterly basis. They help you with your individual development and the requirements on the way to the next level.
  • We tailor your career path to your individual pace and personal goals. There is no "up or out" with us.
  • Our talent factory offers about 10 training days per year. The training sessions include tasks ranging from professional to personal development.
  • Your learning curve will be steep. You will work in small project teams, quickly take on responsibility and work directly with other experienced colleagues - often from the second day on.
  • Office day is always on Fridays at the chosen location. Monday to Thursday you are usually involved in customer projects. Currently, we work together on a virtual basis a lot.
  • Family business, that's how we describe our self-image. The fact that we are an intact community is evident at our monthly office meetings and team events. We also enjoy soccer, skiing, mountain hiking and other activities organized by the team.

Women@4C

A strong network

+

We are proud that we women at 4C have established and actively use the network "Women@4C". The network specifically serves the exchange and networking of women among each other, pushing topics that move us and promoting our professional development as consultants at 4C GROUP.

Four times a year, we consciously take time with each other: At on-site meetings at our locations, we discuss and work on the topics that currently occupy us and that we want to shape in the future. Our range of topics and the design of the meetings is varied and is moderated alternately by our consultants.
Three pillars form the basis of our meetings:

  • Enabling and encouraging exchange: We exchange ideas, for example, on how to deal with challenging project situations for female consultants and share best practice approaches
  • Imparting knowledge: In the context of "learning bites" we train each other, e.g. building and using networks
  • Developing and testing our own ideas: We use the opportunity to test new ideas with the group - e.g. new consulting approaches and products

It doesn't stop there: We develop and deepen topics in flexible task groups. We use the opportunity to give impulses to the entire organization and to take an active role in the exchange with the 4C management. By transporting our learning bites into the exchange formats of the 4C GROUP, we also ensure that the entire 4C team benefits from our network. And best of all: the whole thing is also super fun!

Fireside chat@4C

A unique format

+

With the fireside chat, a unique format was created where the consultant and partner circle can exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. The special thing about it - the evenings take place at the host partner's home, which makes a very intimate exchange possible.

This gives the consultants the chance to collect and address topics in advance in order to move forward together on what moves them. The partner circle has the same opportunity and thus an exchange format is created that is second to none, in which professional, organizational and also personal topics are discussed and passed on to the organization.

In addition, everyone spends a relaxed part of their evening with good food and drinks and can get to know other sides of each other that do not come to the fore in everyday working life.
However, it does not remain a mere discussion of the topics, but suggestions for changes are taken seriously, passed on to the management and also implemented, so that the consultants experience a special opportunity to participate in shaping the company.

Peer exchange

Exchange among each other

+

The peer exchange is a special format in which the consultant circle (from students to junior consultants to managing consultants) can exchange professional topics, challenges that everyday consulting brings and interesting experiences and concepts. It was created by consultants for consultants and offers a trustworthy platform on a peer level.

The regular meetings take place via video conference to connect the four office locations. The topics are decided democratically: beforehand, a virtual vote is held to decide which topic should be on the agenda for the next meeting and whether, for example, guest speakers should be invited from among the managers or partners.
