- Can I apply if I will be working in a different type of consulting role at Bain?
Will Bain support work authorization?
Yes, we will provide support for securing work authorization.
Will I have to pay for relocation?
No, that’s all covered in a rather generous relocation package. We also fully sponsor your weeklong trip to Johannesburg or South America.
Will this hurt my professional development in any way?
Absolutely not. Just the opposite. We work closely with your home offices and their staffing teams to ensure the timing is right and this will not impact any reviews or promotion timelines. In that way, it's similar to our normal transfer processes. This experience will only enhance your time at Bain.
Are there any language requirements?
For Africa, fluency in English is required. For South America, fluency in English is required as well as basic/intermediate proficiency in Portuguese or Spanish.
What happens at the end of the transfer?
We expect most Global Fellows will return to their first home office. But if you are interested in staying longer-term in your second home office, that is also an option.
Can I apply to both programs - Africa and South America?
Yes. That said, you will only be selected for one region. Please keep in mind that we are looking for individuals with existing ties or a compelling reason to be in that particular region, so only pick both regions if you are equally interested in them.
