Social Impact and Sustainability Jobs

BCG seeks to be the most positively impactful company in the world by going beyond sustainability transformations, building our team and capabilities, and growing a scalable social business.

Social impact and sustainability jobs have a positive effect on business and beyond.

​​​​​​​We make progress by following three main avenues: appropriately regulated, profitable private sector solutions; solutions that are not profitable but need to be funded and supported by stakeholders; and the development and implementation of new and innovative solutions.

BCG drives and enables solutions in each of these categories through our client work in the private sector, our global network of social impact partners, high-level cross-sector relationships, data and analytics tools, deep expertise in driving large-scale change, and an understanding of the ecosystems surrounding the Sustainable Development Goals. Explore our social impact and sustainability jobs, and apply today.

Building your social impact consulting expertise.

To build your skills and expertise on social impact, you have access to a variety of options including our Social Impact people programs and fellowships.

Internal immersion programs:

Beyond working within our social impact or climate and sustainability practices, generalist consulting staff can have the opportunity to focus their case work entirely on social impact and sustainability topics for a full year.

As a participant you’ll contribute to the global and local social impact agenda, support clients on their journey towards sustainability, and contribute to build our practice area, advancing our ambition to be the most positively impactful company in the world.

External secondment opportunities:

To get more experience within social impact organizations, our consultants have the opportunity to deep-dive into the social sector by embedding in one of our global social impact partners or social ventures, for a period of up to 12 months. 

We have provided social impact opportunities with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), WWF, Save the Children (SCI), Teach For All (TFALL), Yunus Social Business (YSB) and OpenSC. ​​​​​​​
