Working in Canberra

Canberra is Australia's political heartland and home to BCG's thriving Public Sector practice. We are an innovative team with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for solving some of the biggest challenges facing national and regional governments.

Culture and Location

The Canberra team is a close-knit and energetic group. Our location in the nation’s capital puts us at the focal point for big decisions that shape the future direction of the country. We may be a small BCG hub, but we never hesitate to tackle some of the country's most difficult problems and work with government at all levels to address them.

Our offices are located in Civic, in the city center and close to the corridors of power. BCG in Canberra has views of Parliament House, Lake Burley Griffin, and Black Mountain. The natural environment is reflected in the design of the office, which combines open-plan workspaces with areas for collaboration, deep thinking, and teamwork.

We enjoy coming together at our regular social and office events, and we take full advantage of the food, wine, art, and culture at our doorstep.

Our Work

Much of our work focuses on high-profile projects that address significant public policy issues in Australia, ranging from policy and program development to organizational, operational, and IT projects.

BCG's global Public Sector practice was established by our passionate and energetic team in Australia, whose deep insight and experience has been emulated around the world.


BCG opened in Australia and New Zealand in 1990, following a merger with Australia’s leading independent management consulting firm, Pappas, Carter, Evans and Koop (PCEK). PCEK was deeply experienced in solving problems for Australasian businesses, so the firm was a natural partner for BCG. We have been growing rapidly ever since and are committed to being a positive influence on businesses and communities across the region.

BCG now has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Canberra. We form the best consulting teams for our clients, with consultants working closely together from across our offices.

I’ve worked with people from all kinds of backgrounds at BCG, including government, psychology, engineering, economics, medicine, and more. Bringing together diverse perspectives helps us solve the most complex problems.
