MINDSPIRE Junior Program
We believe that ‘learning by doing’ is the most efficient way to become a consultant. Therefore, each of our junior colleagues have a dedicated senior overseeing their performance and coaching them. They are usually direct supervisors, allocating the tasks appropriate to the juniors’ level of experience and skills, and at the same time providing the necessary feedback for improvement.
Financial consulting has several areas an entrant can choose from. Some of our colleagues are interested in becoming professional experts with deep understanding in specialized areas such as core banking, back office, compliance, treasury, or e-channels. Certain consultants will be experts in information technology related fields like system integrations or IT operations, and others will learn everything about project management. During the MINDSPIRE Junior Program, our colleagues are encouraged to find their own interests and their development path is set according to that.
In addition to trainings, we regularly organize professional events for the junior staff. During these occasions one can learn about MINDSPIRE’s services and projects, meet senior colleagues or discuss specific issues. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pizza night with experienced consultants, a presentation from the service leads, these sessions will widen your professional knowledge and help you become a better consultant.
Another important element of the MINDSPIRE Junior Program is the community itself. We organize voluntary programs, so our employees can participate in exciting events outside of the work environment. In a non-pandemic world this means a wide range of team building activities, such as trying out paintball or go-kart, visiting escape rooms, or just having a drink together at a nice place. Last year we moved these events to the online space, where we played games like virtual escape rooms or similar.
A key element of our Junior Program is the regular and constructive feedback provided by the senior colleagues. Apart from this we operate a formalized evaluation system ensuring that the progress of our junior consultants is measured objectively. This is also designed to help them to see the path they are on, what they have already learned and what needs to be gained in order to become an independent consultant.
Within the Junior Program we offer a course about the basic knowledge required to start to work as a consultant, and later advance in the selected professional career path. A set of compulsory lectures ensure that the same hard and soft skills are gained by all junior staff. Other optional MINDSPIRE trainings are more specific to certain professional areas we are engaged with.
Our colleagues said
“I started working as a junior consultant at MINDSPIRE in January 2020 which was the best possible decision, because they also pay lots of attention to us, junior consultants.
The diverse, increasingly complex tasks and the trainings give me every opportunity to build my consulting career.”
"During my junior years at MINDSPIRE I could learn a lot from my leaders by receiving professional and personnal support and by seeing their attitude towards responsibilities. I could gain experience in a safe environment as I always had (and still have) many senior colleagues to whom I could turn to. Besides learning a lot about project management, the great team experience motivated me to give my all."
"The trainings I have received during the junior program made it easier for me to handle the obstacles during my project work. I could share my experiences with junior colleagues and get advice from senior counselors, which also helped my development."
"Workplace diversity at MINDSPIRE is not just a resounding slogan, almost each day offers new challenges. Working as a consultant one can experience the joy of creation, which is especially important to me. MINDSPIRE supports the development with high quality trainings; there is a wide range of professional and soft-skill trainings."
"The junior program with trainings provides support and development in my work, and the junior evenings bring laughter and joy into my life."
