FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What types of projects and industries do you work in?

Right Lane exclusively works with CEOs, executive teams and boards in the private, not for profit and government sectors.
Our consultants get immediate access to senior decision-makers.

While we predominantly serve mid-sized clients, our top 10 clients this year include:

  • a leading plaintiff law firm
  • three profit-to-member financial services firms
  • a leading provider of financial product and advice services
  • a specialist climate change advisory and investment firm
  • a national not-for-profit addressing education inequity
  • a multi-national technology company
  • a public sector organisation
  • a leading national retail group.

Over 60% of our clients are ‘for purpose’ enterprises and about a quarter of our clients are in financial services, although we work across all industries.

As we serve mid-sized clients, our projects are usually smaller and shorter in duration than other high-quality firms that exclusively serve large organisations. Consultants are usually working on multiple projects concurrently.

Right Lane primarily works on strategy consulting projects. Although we do less in the implementation space, we help our clients set up their organisations for successful delivery.

Most of our consulting cohort get to play a role in our substantial low and pro bono program, which has 5 themes: gender equality; human rights; public health; place-based disadvantage, and responsible investing.

What is a normal project team structure?

Most projects are delivered by a Right Lane team of two to three consultants. All projects are led by a senior team member.
Our teams usually consist of a principal (with between 10 and 20 years of consulting experience), an associate principal/engagement manager and a senior associate/associate. All staff have exposure to the senior consultants on a daily basis. Over 70% of our non-graduate consulting staff have previously worked for McKinsey, BCG, Booz (Strategy &), A.T Kearney, or LEK.

What is a typical career path?

A typical career path for a consultant at Right Lane begins at associate, then to senior associate, engagement manager, associate principal to principal. Promotion is based on performance.

What are the career development opportunities?

All members of the Right Lane team participate in formal and informal development opportunities. Each staff member has a coach, where they work together to develop skills and ensure they are reaching your performance targets. You will learn and develop quickly alongside your highly skilled colleagues. We have a deep commitment to individual development reflected in our Foundation Consulting Skills program, our knowledge working lunches and bespoke professional development programs.

What is the recruitment process?

After a review of your cover letter, academic transcript and CV, successful candidates will have a phone interview which includes a brief oral case and a discussion regarding expectations. We then conduct two consecutive 60-minute case-style interviews. We then ask for the successful candidate for a piece of writing, complete reference checks and make an offer. We aim to have the process completed within 3 weeks of the first contact.

Can you provide sponsorship to work in Australia?

Right Lane can sponsor candidates with the right skillset if they are not already permanent residents of Australia.
