180 Degrees Consulting

Established in 2007, 180 Degrees Consulting (180DC) expanded to the University of Queensland in 2014. Our goal is to enhance our clients’ operations by providing efficient solutions to various aspects of their business, including logistics, strategy, marketing, financial sustainability, data management, and social impact measurement.

We recruit for consultants twice every year with sessions running at the end of February for Semester 1 and at the end of July for Semester 2.

At the beginning of February and July, you will be able to access the application portal, where we require basic study details, your resume, and why you are interested in our organisation. Events for our two recruitment sessions will be posted on our Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

Our recruitment sessions are designed to test how you think, and more importantly how you work in a team. As we are all students, a knowledge of consulting is not a prerequisite, but we want to know you can think creatively and with others to develop innovative solutions.

A lot. 180DC is akin to completing a fifth course each semester, however we believe it is the most rewarding course you will complete while at university. After recruitment, we hold welcome drinks for all consultants with our primary sponsor, to give each consultant a chance to meet their team members, as well as those on other projects, the executive, and industry consultants. Once projects begin, each week a team meeting is held and tasks are allocated for the week. This can either be research, writing, brainstorming or presentation preparation.
