Update on the coronavirus: interviews and events are still digital

As a result of the current corona crisis, we have completely switched our recruiting processes and career events to digital formats and thus remain in contact with you without unnecessary risks. Find suitable jobs or an exciting event and apply online. We wish everyone good health and optimism!


Female Excellence

The best teams are diverse teams. We are committed to a future in which everyone is equally supported – regardless of gender, religion, origin or other characteristics. Change does not happen overnight. Change is the result of many small steps. Our first step is to ensure gender equality. We are committed to increasing the proportion of women in the (currently) male-dominated consulting industry for financial services. Our Female Excellence initiative supports our female consultants on their individual career paths – and is always on the lookout for new talents! Join us in shaping the financial services industry of tomorrow – what are your plans for the future?

You alone decide where your career should go! Career planning, flexible working models and a wide range of training programs make it possible for your career to fit in with your life in the long term.



From the moment you receive your contract documents, our Buddy Program places a female colleague at your side, who supports you in onboarding and provides you with helpful background information.



women@zeb creates a special framework for internal networking with other female consultants and offers you a platform to intensively exchange expertise and experience.

Stay and grow

In addition to our important internal network, zeb supports your further career steps with selected development programs. For example the iniative IWiL offers you the opportunity to network beyond our company and get to know various female leaders. As part of the program, you can exchange ideas with successful women from other companies and build valuable contacts. Learn more about it here!

IWiL: Initiative Women into Leadership

The “Initiative Women into Leadership” (IWiL) offers our top female consultants the opportunity to network outside zeb. The initiative aims to promote talent development across companies, one to two levels below top management, and to provide strategic support to female executives beyond company boundaries. By engaging outstanding female mentors from academia, society and business, we create visibility for our talented female consultants who are supported as mentees at IWiL. In addition, our partner Katrin Lumma actively contributes to shaping the program in the role of mentor. Click here to find out more.

women@zeb network meeting 

Our internal women@zeb network promotes the exchange of ideas and experiences with each other. We meet several times a year to listen to and discuss exciting internal and external key notes on various topics.
To promote exchange – especially in challenging times – we have developed new digital formats in 2020/2021. One of these is the Leadership@Lunch format. You can find more details below. 

Networking women@zeb | October 2021
How the right question can be a game changer: At our women@zeb fall event, our female colleagues met in Hamburg for a hybrid reunion. During an exciting workshop, Stefanie, Lisa, Lena and Susanne demonstrated how the right and targeted question can steer conversations in new directions. The event was followed by a lunch where there was plenty of time to talk to each other in person, which we sorely missed last year – therefore, we are already very much looking forward to next time!
Networking women@zeb | summer 2021
Women@zeb – multifaceted diversity: this summer, our women@zeb initiative met with Dr. Emilia Roig to learn more about the many facets of diversity. To conclude the meeting, the participants took part in a sundowner yoga session to remind themselves of the importance of carving out personal time. 
We thank Ms. Roig and look forward to the next event!
Networking Leadership@Lunch | May 2021
Role models and networking: at the most recent digital Leadership@Lunch, Isabel Tufet Bayona, CEO of Santander Consumer Operations Services, gave us exciting and honest insights into her career path, inspiring many of our colleagues. 
We thank Ms. Tufet Bayona and look forward to the next event!
Networking Leadership@Lunch | January 2021
Learning from and with female role models: Our new digital format Leadership@Lunch is aimed at all colleagues who want to learn from female role models and broaden their horizons. We meet in a relaxed atmosphere, as if for a lunch date, and on each occasion a different female expert reports on her career path. At the end of each meeting, there is plenty of time to share personal experiences and answer questions. 
Networking women@zeb | summer 2020
Virtual women@zeb meeting: This summer, our women@zeb community got together for their first virtual event. Dr. Jens Mazei shared exciting insights into the differences in negotiation patterns of women and men, the consequences for (salary) negotiations, and  ways to find new approaches and solutions. Many thanks to Dr. Mazei for providing a lot of food for thought! We are already looking forward to the next digital event. 
Networking women@zeb | winter 2019
Münster women@zeb: Our winter edition of the women@zeb meeting in Münster focused on professional networking in social media. Laura Pfannemüller, Wiebke Salhofen and Katrin Lumma moderated the lively discussion, which was followed by an exciting interview with Sandra Götting, the founder of roestbar. Many thanks to the speakers, we look forward to a more in-depth discussion.

Participation at the herCAREER
zeb at the herCAREER fair in Munich: after more than a year of restrictions and lockdowns due to the coronavirus situation, herCAREER – one of the largest trade fairs in Europe for female career planning – finally took place again on September 16–17, 2021. We had our own stand at the fair and for the first time in a long time were able to hold exciting conversations with potential candidates. In our meetups, Elisa and Laura talked to visitors in small groups about their personal experience and career path in a male-dominated industry.  
We are already looking forward to attending next year’s fair!
