Global Oil & Gas Practice – Junior Research Analyst – North America – Houston



McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm with over 100 locations across the world, advising the top management of leading companies and institutions on issues of strategy, organization, technology and operations. Our mission is twofold: to help our clients make positive, lasting and substantial improvements in their performance and to build a great Firm that is able to attract, develop, excite and retain exceptional people.
Our Oil & Gas Practice is currently seeking to recruit a Junior Research Analyst, based in our Houston Office.
Detailed Description
McKinsey’s Oil & Gas Practice serves the top shapers in the global oil and gas industry; an industry that has been historically pivotal to many of the world’s most significant geopolitical developments.   
We serve clients in all aspects of the industry, from upstream activities such as exploration, drilling, production and services, through transportation and refining, to wholesale and retail marketing. Clients range from the largest oil companies (both publicly traded and nationally owned), through integrated medium-sized players, independents, and service companies, to regulatory agencies, investors, and business consortia involving oil & gas companies.  

Primary Responsibilities
1. Client service and client development support.
As a JRA, you will be responsible for collecting, analyzing and synthesizing information from a broad variety of sources.  You will develop client-ready industry overviews, case materials, financial analyses and other knowledge products in support of consultant teams. 
You will be responsible for working with consultants to scope and prioritize their research needs, identifying the key issues through discussions with requestors and, on that basis, to determine the most appropriate, cost-effective and timely research solutions. You will then gather the necessary raw information using a broad spectrum of sources and will organize, analyze, and synthesize the findings into targeted, McKinsey-formatted end products.  These end products may be in the form of single exhibits, written summaries, basic fact packs, and spreadsheets.  

2. Knowledge development.  
You are encouraged to build a solid knowledge base, developing an appropriately broad understanding of the relevant structure, players, and trends in your topic area(s).  A solid understanding of a specific content area and its salient issues form the basis for advancement in the Research career track.  To help build your expertise, you will develop basic fact packs, summaries, and assigned portions of larger documents in your area of focus.

To enable research analysts to meet the requirements of their new role and to support their professional and personal growth, we use a mixture of formal and informal training:
  • Formal training – In their first months, analysts attend a rigorous induction programme tailored to their role.  The objective is to get to know our knowledge network, and to get quickly up to speed on available sources, frameworks and systems. During their career with McKinsey they receive further comprehensive training in research and communications skills to fully support their analyses and knowledge building development.
  • On-the-job training – In their day-to-day role analysts can expect coaching from colleagues, in addition to training on our global knowledge databases and networks.
