Your competence counts

But your horizons extend much further, as does your ambition. You are looking for an environment where you can make more happen. You would like to be assigned tasks which open up new prospects for you. Start your consultant career at Detecon now!

We look forward to having you and your knowledge of the industry, along with your strategic and operational expertise in combination with unique ICT competence, in our ranks. Work with us as a member of an international staff on interdisciplinary teams as we collaborate on creating state-of-the-art solutions for our clients – from strategy to implementation. Work today on the issues of tomorrow, and guide national companies and global players in the ICT industry and many other sectors to the top of their class.

Outstanding Personalities

Competence and international format

You stand out because of your excellent analytical and intellectual skills. You readily assume responsibility and are prepared to go the extra mile with us so that we can guide our clients to their goals confidently and competently. A relationships manager who is well-versed in intercultural aspects, a striking figure on the national and international stages, and impresses with excellent communication skills, you are accepted without hesitation as a peer at all levels, all the way to the CxO.

Our success and our work rests in particular on two pillars. One is the manner in which we deal and work with one another – as colleagues, appreciative of one another, team-oriented, yet oriented to a high degree to performance. The other is that we want to work with you in a spirit of partnership and with the aim of achieving constructive results for all of us, not only for our clients.

Get Off to a Flying Start

Drive digital transformation forward

You will create high-level projects covering all aspects of digital transformation in companies and on markets. You and your excellent colleagues on internationally staffed teams will produce top results and drive digital transformation forward. A high-level performer, you will be working where your ideas and your commitment make the greatest impact – at the management level, as a “trusted advisor” to CIOs, CTOs, and CEOs. The package of benefits we offer to you is rounded off by the right work-life balance and transparent appraisals of your performance.

Oriented to Performance

Your performance counts

You decide whether you want to join us as an all-rounder or a specialist. If you choose the first option, you will focus on one or more industries. In the second case, you focus your work on a specific topic and apply what you know in projects for all industries. So you develop further both vertically and horizontally.

As a “T-shaped Consultant”, you enhance either the breadth or the depth of your experience at every stage of your career. Ultimately, your personal “T” defines the backbone of your career.

We expect dedication in many different aspects and multi-dimensional development from our consultants. We will support you as you align your career path along our four key dimensions Project, Client, Knowledge, and People and become a genuine Detecon consultant.

Client covers all activities related to client acquisition and the evolvement of client relationships.

Knowledge covers knowledge-sharing activities and activities involving the development of subjects and methods.

People covers internal networking activities and activities involving recruiting and evolvement of employees.

Project covers all activities within the framework of concrete projects, i.e., project assignments and project results.

Networks

Starting with good connections

Exploit your potential to the full and become part of a network. The Consultants Network has been set up for our Consultants and Senior Consultants. The group’s activities aim to promote the sharing of knowledge and experience so that we here at Detecon can make the best possible use of the potential inherent in all of our consultants. Based on the motto “by equals for equals”, training programs focusing on practice-oriented methods and tools for project management and contact with clients are conducted in an atmosphere of trust. Last, but not least, the CN regularly organizes networking weekends where participants can share innovative ways of thinking and concepts, evolve ideas as a group, and expand their own networks.

Sharing and networking at an excellent level: the Detecon Managing Consultant Network is the network for our consultants with outstanding responsibility for projects and management. The focus of the regularly held events is on personal exchange and the active evolvement and development of consulting methods and topics. Communication and networking are aimed especially at innovative consulting approaches and the presentation of important “lighthouse projects”.

In addition to our open feedback culture and regular performance assessments, our diversified Detecon landscape will support you as you evolve professionally and personally – always along the lines of our 4 dimensions Project, Client, Knowledge, and People.

Your career development is primarily the responsibility of your People Development Leader. You will also be assigned a buddy and a mentor. Your buddy will help you to learn your way around the world of Detecon during the first six months. Your mentor, on the other hand, will be with you for a longer period and will focus on your personal development and career planning.

Determined

Career model

Our employees are the foundation of our success. That is why we work unceasingly with you along your personal career path right from the start. Whether an all-rounder or specialist: we promote your talents and help you to develop optimally both as a professional and as a person. Our career model is transparent and shows you where you stand at any given moment. Your responsibility for client development, conduct of projects, or work on a specific subject increases as you move up each level of your career. The time you spend at a particular career level is dependent on your personal performance.

Excellence

Consulting fields

We make ICT strategies work! We are determined to keep this promise to our clients, so our consultants accept an enormous range of challenges. We drive digital transformation forward. The tasks which we take on and solve for our clients are just as varied and different as the industries and the companies we work for worldwide. Our clients include companies from virtually every branch of the industrial and service sectors.

Our clients

Thinking Space

Working in an extraordinary corporate culture

Integrity and appreciation, enthusiasm and reliability are values which we stand for and which we live. We are team players and, together with our colleagues, produce the best results for our clients. To assure that you have optimal support in achieving these results, Detecon offers you an extraordinary working environment centered on the twin pillars of communication and cooperation.

Fifteen international artists have transformed our premises at corporate headquarters in Cologne into imaginative worlds of experience. Our art concept gives you space for personal sharing of ideas and experience and enhances your ability to view things from various perspectives. This is an important prerequisite for our work. Over the course of our many diverse and challenging projects, we analyze highly complex processes, examine structures under the microscope, and initiate transformation. We cannot achieve our goals with professional expertise alone – the work demands creativity and the willingness to think outside the box as well.

Our Values

We constantly share our knowledge with one another, give one another support and encouragement, and respect the work done by others. Our joint success comes from applying these fundamental principles. Teamwork is the way our consultants live every day. We are open to questions and treat one another fairly. We inspire one another, carry on constructive discussions with one another, and together we go the extra mile until we have found the best solution. The way we cooperate with one another is the way we treat our clients as well. We are valued partners who work with, not for, clients on the most exciting projects in the industry.

We rely on flat hierarchies. Our decision-maker culture is aimed at producing results without being authoritarian. This attitude opens up many opportunities for you to acquire quickly more responsibility and breathing space than is generally possible. We have tremendous faith in the capabilities of our employees. We regard readiness to perform at the highest level and to work autonomously as a given.

We employ employees from more than 30 nations and have successfully conducted projects in more than 160 countries. We are all united by our life in a corporate culture which respects the social and professional needs of its employees. As the economy becomes increasingly global in its scope, our internationality and diversity are tremendous advantages for us, and we consciously exploit them for the evolvement of our enterprise.

Here at Detecon, consultants have good opportunities to develop personally at a rapid pace. Experienced consultants coach our new colleagues individually in the ins and outs of project work. Moreover, we will appoint a mentor to stand at your side during your first year. We conduct training programs for all of the career levels – for beginners as well as advanced professionals. Opportunities for promotion are transparent and depend to a large degree on the personal development, project experience, and performance of the individual. But your personal and professional development does not without exception have to find expression in new career levels at every turn. We respect your wishes if you see your path in the evolvement of your expertise rather than in ascension through the hierarchy. Our concern is that every employee fulfill his/her role optimally with respect to our clients.

Corporate consultants work around the clock, are never at home, and do not have a personal life: a cliché, of course, but one with a kernel of truth. Our consultants work hard – no question. But performance at the highest level over the long term is simply impossible without a balance between work and leisure time. This is another area where we depend on breathing space, trust, and fairness. Obviously work has to be given priority during critical project phases. On the other hand, our consultants have plenty of freedom to make their own decisions when scheduling their working days and hours – without supervision or time clocks. We trust you to do a good job. When you do the work is left largely up to you and your sense of responsibility. The results are what count for us – not a physical presence.
