At Arthur D. Little, we are constantly looking for outstanding candidates, and we recruit all year round. We view the recruitment process as a two-way evaluation. This gives us the opportunity to meet and challenge you, and gives you the chance to get a better picture of our company and our people.
During the recruitment process, you will attend several interviews and will meet and be evaluated by several potential colleagues.
The recruitment process has 8 stages
We are seeking individuals with strong quantitative abilities, flexible minds and personal impact.

Every application is screened and carefully evaluated by Human Resources and one consultant. Candidates of particular interest are invited to a hiring day.
