AXXCON says “Hello Düsseldorf”AXXCON intensifies its activity in North Rhine-Westphalia and opens an office in Düsseldorf. Partner Torsten Beyer is heading the office. In addition to its location in Schwalbach, near Frankfurt, the consulting company AXXCON can now also be found in Düsseldorf. DAX companies based in NRW are among its long-standing customers. By focusing on energy suppliers, the Rhine-Ruhr region has been at the centre of AXXCON’s activities for a long time now. Besides better customer proximity, there are other reasons for its relocation like the increased attractiveness for new employees and the close connection to universities. For a growing consulting company these are essential criteria. Managing Director Michael Möller explains: “Our employees and partners come from all over Germany. Usually they are on site at the customer’s premises. But when we come together – for strategy workshops, meetings or team events – both Düsseldorf and Frankfurt are easily accessible for everyone. In addition, as a city, Düsseldorf offers a great quality of life. There is always something going on in the old town, no matter how the weather is like. Even during winter-time, it is possible to sit outside.”
Reinforcements are needed at both locations.Entry opportunities are available at all consultant levels. If you want to know which prerequisites good management consultants should have, read here: An interview with Stefan Jaschke who is partner at AXXCON and responsible for recruiting.
What do we expect from a management consultant?
What does a management consultant actually do?As a management consultant, often you will be travelling during the week. But that’s exactly what makes this job so attractive and anything else but boring. On the other hand, working from home is also an important topic for most people. With AXXCON this can be realized without any problems. Working as a management consultant combines the following: If required, you’re out at the customer’s premises. Meeting quite a number of people. Handling a wide range of tasks, as well as becoming acquainted with several industries. You’re active in an advisory role, but also right in the middle of a company’s operations. During the engagement, you will learn quite a lot. Ultimately, you help customers making their company fit for the future.
What are the essential prerequisites for the ‘management consultant’ profession?Of course, the willingness to travel is an important characteristic. A degree in business administration, engineering or other economic sciences is an advantage. We are also interested in career changers who are willing to break new ground. Gaps in your CV aren’t bad – sometimes they’re even interesting. The most important thing for us is that employees get involved, put their ideas on paper, present and track them as well as play an active role in finding innovative solutions.
