Typical Qualifications for an Analyst
WHAT YOU WILL DO AND HOW YOU WILL GROW
Analysts are our front lines of research, analysis, and presentation building the team’s knowledge base around the topic at hand.
As those who dive deepest into the issues, Analysts think critically and creatively to develop insights based on their findings from the research process.
They gain a broad knowledge base that cuts across sectors and geographies while serving as the core of every project’s work.
For / example, recent Analysts have created a macro-economic plan for the Government of Ethiopia to accelerate industrial growth, designed a major foundation’s strategy to control sleeping sickness in Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries, and launched a new impact investment fund for agriculture in Nigeria.
Analysts have also worked on creating the world’s largest public, freely available dataset on national digital ID in India - 'The State of Aadhaar Report' A People’s Perspective report showing insights that can help drive a data-driven discourse on Aadhaar (The world’s largest biometric ID system).
In addition, Analysts helped the City of Cartagena, Colombia develop an employment strategy to adapt to rapid changes in its economy and infrastructure and supported a leading US non-profit in applying a racial justice and equity lens to its programming.
Analysts have previously traveled for work to a mine in a jungle in Indonesia, refugee camps in remote parts of Kenya, and to the border of Nepal looking at trafficking transport chains.
Dalberg is a platform for change. Our staff are empowered to start new programs, institute best practices, and develop traditions that will define the Dalberg experience for years to come.
Innovation and entrepreneurship are not only valued at Dalberg; they are essential to our firm’s success. In addition to providing training, management-level advising, and mentoring, we empower consultants to learn by doing, engaging them as full members of project teams from day one.
Analysts benefit from a wide range of career development opportunities. Top performers will have opportunities to work in other Dalberg offices and, after 2 years with the firm, will have the option to spend time on a service project in emerging markets or studying a new language.
Following 2-3 years at Dalberg, some Analysts pursue graduate degrees, attending some of the top programs in the world, Dalberg provides active support and mentorship throughout the graduate school application process for those choosing to pursue this path.
Other top performing Analysts choose to stay at Dalberg continuing to grow into development leaders and taking on greater levels of responsibility as their careers progress.
