WOMEN AT APRICUM

Saravanna about his internship at Apricum Group
LAURA HOFFMANN-OSTENHOF
CONSULTANT

“I joined Apricum directly after my master’s degree as I wanted to work as a strategy consultant focused on the cleantech sector. Apricum was one of the few top consulting firms where I could do this. I also found the opportunity to work on both strategy consulting and transaction advisory projects attractive – something not offered by the traditional big consulting firms”.

JESSELYN MALIMATA
PROJECT MANAGER

“I started out as a newbie in consulting/cleantech when I first joined as an intern, but after 5 years I’ve dealt with some of the most complex projects, worked with the biggest names in the industry and covered a wide range of topics. I can’t imagine developing the breadth of expertise and steep learning curve as I have – while still being focused on cleantech – anywhere else.”

DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND
FLEXIBLE WORKING AT APRICUM

Since 2008, we’ve grown our team, expanded our sector expertise and opened new offices but one important goal is still to be achieved – equal representation of women at Apricum.

It is clear that diversity strengthens an organization through its collective shared experience and perspectives. With native speakers of more than 12 languages, our international team observes different cultural and religious traditions and features a range of ages. Gender parity, however, is a key goal we are committed to and actively working on.

Offering greater flexibility of working to all staff, parents and non-parents alike, is one way we aim to ensure all team members feel included.

Specifically for parents, we support you in finding the right work-life balance that suits your situation, not just parental leave but returning to work on a sustainable basis that meets your and your family’s needs.

Flexible working means not just a combination of remote working and in-office presence, but enabling you to work part time – regardless of whether you have children. You are also free to organize your workday to suit family commitments (e.g., dropping off or picking up the kids from day care or school, observing family dinner times etc.) or to pursue hobbies or social activities.

We would also like to underline the importance of inclusion to Apricum’s company culture. Inclusion for us means being transparent and open, ensuring equal opportunities, taking seriously and acting upon what arises in quarterly mentee chats and honoring upward feedback. This, we will always continue to do.

If this sounds like the kind of workplace for you, then check our vacancies section below.
