“In the course of the seven years I have been a part of TC, I could support numerous exciting projects with varying project teams. For me, TC is like a big family. In daily project life, we mutually complement each other with our diverse skills and traits and value the professional exchange among each other. Within our team, everybody is contributing to the overall success and thus becomes an inevitable part of the TC family.”
“With the support of TC, I have been able to celebrate many professional successes since I started as a working student. I appreciate the encouragement in realizing my own topics and taking own responsibility. Every project is different and motivates me over and over again. You can always rely on the project team, both with customers and internally.”
“After working for a group of companies for around 20 years, during which I got to know and appreciate TC as a customer, I joined the company a few years ago as a manager with interesting development prospects – today I am one of the partners and managing directors at TC. Innovative customer projects, less pronounced hierarchies with short decision-making paths and, above all, highly motivated and qualified teams create a positive working atmosphere. Instead of internal competitive pressure, TC is characterized by team orientation and helpfulness; the focus is on the customer’s goals and success.”
“I started at TC during an internship. TC won me over immediately with the company structure which provides for personal development, interesting projects and a family-like atmosphere. Now I work at TC as a consultant and complete my Master Studies in parallel. I especially appreciate the opportunity to match my personal life situation with my job.”
Regardless of whether you have just started your studies or are about to graduate – we offer you the chance to gain insight into projects over months and years and to actively contribute to their success. In the best case, you will already find the place for your future career with us.
Your role is to support our consulting teams as their member. You will work on your own responsibility in close cooperation with your colleagues. Your daily routine consists mainly of research, analysis and preparation of information and data. In doing so, you will mainly use PowerPoint and Excel and constantly expand your skills, which you can use very well for your studies. Even as a working student you will have the opportunity to work directly with our clients.
Last but not least, our flexible models give you enough freedom to concentrate on your studies at the same time – and to broaden your horizons in between on vacation or during a semester abroad.
With your bachelor’s or master’s degree, you are ready for your consulting career. During the TC onboarding week, we welcome you: You will get to know all your colleagues and learn the basics of payment. You will also receive extensive training in visualization and project methodology.
After you have been assigned to a project team, you will be present at the clients from the very beginning, and you are responsible for your first work packages. You will build up project management skills, supervise your own project elements such as business modelling, preparation and taking part at customer workshops, preparation of management documents or take over the management of sub-projects. In this way, you will not only develop your professional knowledge, but also your personal skills.
All in all, you can develop individually with our training-on-the-job concept. From day one you will have a mentor by your side, who will accompany you on your personal development and career path. At the same time, you also get the opportunity to train younger colleagues and accompany them on their way at Thede Consulting.
With several years of professional experience in a strategy or implementation consultancy or in business, preferably with a payment background, you can start directly with us as a Senior Consultant. Your background, qualifications and personal expectations define the focus and entry level.
As the primary contact to the client, you will take project responsibility under the leadership of a manager and lead your own team of consultants and/or customers. Together with your client, you will develop solutions for complex, strategic issues and build a sustainable customer relationship. You will be introduced to acquire projects yourself and expand your network at professional conferences. In this way, you will continuously gain industry expertise and deepen your management know-how.
As part of your increasing management responsibility, you will also take on the training of new colleagues and take care of internal tasks, e.g. in the area of business development.
As an “old hand” in consulting and/or the payment industry, you already bring along an established customer network and your personal professional focus. This background forms the basis for building new business relationships as well as the further development of the company in terms of content and expertise on client projects as well as in business development.
As a manager, you will play a key role in shaping our customer relationships and contribute to the company’s success through your own customer acquisition and corresponding sales responsibility. This gives you the opportunity to play an intensive role in shaping our topics and our future direction.
As a professional manager, you can lead several teams of consultants in different projects and maintain the corresponding customer contacts. With your methodical and structured way of working as well as your experience in leading and developing employees, you will give our young colleagues the appropriate orientation. Carrying this responsibility requires a lot of energy and flexibility.
Externally, you represent TC at national and international conferences and give presentations on current key topics. Internally, you will take responsibility for individual topics such as marketing. We offer you the opportunity to continuously develop yourself within the framework of individual coaching and training measures.

Training and education
Further development is one of our most important values. Our employees are our focus and the reason for our success. In the consulting environment, we face new challenges every day, which is why we strive to continuously qualify our employees throughout their entire working lives. Individual concepts are based on the development stage – from working student to partner, everyone has the chance to improve methodically, professionally, and personally. We make use of both internal and external training opportunities.
Methodological skills are essential in our day-to-day consulting work. To continuously develop these skills, we offer ongoing training in areas such as project management, business case, and presentation and moderation techniques.
As a special consultancy, we work with complex topics. We regularly organize training sessions in which specific expertise and knowledge on the respective project focus is imparted through internal training or lectures.
Personality is crucial in our job. That’s why we invest in further training on leadership and team skills, conflict management, self-management, and time management, as well as many other individual development opportunities.
Our team spirit is unique and enables every crew member to achieve top performance and deliver outstanding results for our clients. At the same time, we don’t forget to have a good time in between and reset our sails at relaxed team events. We bring the entire team together several times a year to take a time out, innovate and think creatively together about what drives our clients and us. We celebrate the end of the year with a mandatory Christmas party.
Traditionally, we meet for a team event during the Kieler Woche. The focus is on joint exchange and team building, while we sail on a traditional ship on the Kiel Fjord.
Our annual visit to the Oktoberfest has become a tradition. A fun time for all of us with a palate feast in one of the smaller tents, with danceable music and the one or other beer-Maß.
TC goes Skifoan
From the desk to the slopes. We go to the mountains together and spend a few days skiing. Besides sports, there is also time for joint dinners, game nights and other activities.
