Bain Southeast Asia
You have questions? We have answers
When is the best time to apply for a role at Bain & Company SEA?
We accept applications all year round and review candidates on a rolling basis for experienced professional candidates.
For those candidates who have graduated or yet to graduate, from an undergraduate or Masters’ degree with no prior professional experience, please apply during our AC campaign that takes place between February-March every year and MBA campaign that takes place between February-March every year, or refer to our website for specific campus deadlines
How do start dates work at Bain for experienced hires?
Whilst we recruit all year round, we have set 4-5 start dates for our Associate Consultant and Consultant roles. We can interview at any point prior or after these dates, and will work with you to land on an appropriate start date.
I’m not based in SEA, can I still apply to the SEA offices?
Yes, you can apply to our Southeast Asia offices. We look for a strong connection and/or interest in Southeast Asia. As there are varying work authorization regulations and/or language requirements across our Southeast Asia offices, it would be helpful if you could disclose in your application any need for supporting work authorization so we can reach out to discuss it with you.
What is the application timeline that I can expect?
For campus candidates, as we have different applications for different schools, the deadlines can be found here. Do note that we only begin to review applications after the application deadline. If your school is not listed, please reach out to the recruiting team so we can better advise you on the application deadline.
For graduate candidates (including Master and PhD students) and working professionals, Bain SEA does not have set interview dates so the Recruitment Team will work with each candidate to organize a mutually convenient time for the interviews to take place.
Will I be able to re-apply if I was not shortlisted for an interview?
Yes, you may re-apply but we will ask that you refrain from doing so until at least 12 months has passed, in line with our global approach to recruiting.
How does Bain’s Southeast Asia staffing model work?
Our staffing team actively works with our consultants to identify appropriate project opportunities across Southeast Asia based on professional development needs, topics of interest and Bain’s business needs. However, there are a number of opportunities available for our consultants to work outside of SEA including but not limited to case demand transfers, experience share transfers, and short and long-term transfers.
During your time at Bain, you will build a broader global network through collaborations and global training programs, which will naturally open the door to global mobility if that’s something desired as part of your Bain experience.
What type of cases can I expect to work on?
We are driven by a bold ambition to create an extraordinary impact for our clients and communities, which means that you will solve transformation challenges for industry leaders and disruptions.
You can expect to collaborate with a network of digital innovators to produce breakthrough thinking and help our clients achieve extraordinary and enduring success.
