Guten Tag – We are the Berliners!
We are eight friends with the aspiration to use our entrepreneurial mindset to solve problems that matter. We have passion for meaningful impact and seek to shape society by delivering pro bono consulting services to non-profit organizations and social enterprises.
Depending on our project pipeline, we recruit 20-30 consultants each semester. We are looking for creative students from all disciplines with curiosity for new challenges and a deep compassion for people. Apart from these crucial qualities, they have to be able to dedicate a considerable amount of time to our organization. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to reach out to us. Application for the next semester will open October 23, 2016, on our website.
We tackle complex real-life problems and design implementable solutions – an experience unlikely to be found in classroom settings. To ensure both professional services and personal development we provide mentoring programs together with practical input on topics such as project management, consulting methodology and creative problem solving. In short, everything we do is pointed at giving our consultants the opportunity to gain new food for thought, take responsibility and grow with new challenges.
Our working culture is what defines and differentiates us from other organizations. We stress a non-hierarchical, failure friendly, and multidisciplinary approach. Our internal communication is direct, honest and designed to trigger novel perspectives. We build on each other’s ideas in order to encourage one another to succeed. To us, no idea is a bad idea – no matter how crazy. Instead we seek to empower our consultants to think laterally and pursue bold ideas that solve our client’s toughest challenges.
Our client focused consulting services aim to have immediate social impact. Combining traditional consulting methodology and team-based innovation practices, such as Design Thinking, we reach a holistic approach that yields need-based solutions. Due to regular feedback loops throughout the project phase, we ensure transparency, client satisfaction and continuous improvement of our services.
We exclusively work with organizations that are driven by a social mission. Furthermore, potential clients are screened for their inclination to novel ideas and their capacity for change. They are dynamic, inspirational and excited to interact at eye level with our consultants. During a project period of one semester this close collaboration leads to benefits on both sides.
Renowned for its cultural diversity, accumulation of creative talent, and vibrant social start-up scene, Berlin offers the perfect environment for the first 180 Degrees Consulting branch in Germany. Due to a mature social sector with unique proximity to political decision-making power, our projects promise to have high societal impact. Lastly, Berlin is home to more than 40 higher education institutions, giving us direct access to a large interdisciplinary pool of outstanding students.
Our goal is to establish mutually beneficial partnerships with organizations from various sectors. As a pro bono consultancy, our partners are essential to our growth. Their wide networks and in-depth expertise substantiate the quality of our consulting services. In return, we connect them with young talent and future leaders.
