About 180 Degrees

180 Degrees Consulting is the world’s largest non-profit student-driven consultancy. Our mission is to strengthen the ability of socially conscious organizations to achieve high impact social outcomes through the development of innovative, practical and sustainable solutions. Teams of university students completing studies in relevant fields work throughout the year with worthwhile organizations to identify and overcome specific challenges they are facing. This process is mutually beneficial. Organizations are assisted in the development of innovative, sustainable and practical solutions. At the same time, students are able to contribute to their communities, apply their university studies in a practical environment, and develop valuable life skills.

We are currently recruiting Student Consultants. Student Consultants will work with a Team Leader and Consulting Directors throughout the semester.
