Six reasons to join Singular
You will develop your entrepreneurial skills
Singular is an owner-led company. You will be given the opportunity to work closely with our partners, as well as other senior leaders, as soon as you join us. At Singular, everyone – including Junior Associates – contributes to the improvement of our company. Working with highly committed colleagues enables you to move the company forward and treat it as your own. You can contribute to our internal development through various initiatives such as recruitment, industry reports and attracting new clients right from the start of your career.
This entrepreneurial mindset also applies to our consulting projects. From day one you are put in the driver’s seat of your development by being given significant project responsibilities. As an Associate, you will start facing C-level clients and build deep relationships. As an experienced hire, you will have the entrepreneurial freedom to structure the project and lead the team.
You will be part of the Singular family
Working at Singular is very personal. Right from the beginning of your Singular journey, you will experience our distinct family atmosphere. This is due to our open feedback culture, in all directions, ensuring direct communication with managers and partners.
Other important aspects of Singular are that we support each other beyond the call of duty and that fun is an important aspect of our work. Having fun is not limited to team events – we value colleagues who make each other laugh even during challenging phases of a project. Our work environment is very ‘start-up like’: informal, driven and hands-on.
You will gain international exposure
You will be given global exposure through our international projects, particularly those in emerging markets such as South Africa and CIS. As our project teams are staffed across borders, you will work with consultants from all over the world. After two years, Singular consultants have typically worked in five countries with a diverse selection of colleagues spanning ten nationalities.
On top of that, you will meet all your colleagues during our annual firm-wide events. To underline our global mindset and unified team spirit, the whole company comes together at an international hotspot to network, exchange experiences and explore a new city together. Some of the last destinations were Havana, Bangkok, Cape Town, Barcelona and Dubai.
Your work will be meaningful
You will work on projects with key decision makers at large international companies and help to reshape their businesses. Thus, the decisions that clients make based on your work can make an impact on hundreds, or even thousands of people. Working on topics of this magnitude and complexity will ensure you build skills to tackle any business challenge and provide personal growth in terms of leadership skills.
You will be exposed to a variety of topics
Singular allows you to go beyond consulting by offering unique exposure to the fields of private equity, venture capital and technology. Through our close collaboration with the family office of our founding partners, you will be able to work on early-stage growth capital investments and mature-stage buyouts. Through our subsidiary, FourPointZero, you can contribute to bringing new and advanced technology to sub-Saharan Africa and CIS.
Your promotion will be purely based on merit
Singular is known to be the industry’s fastest track to leadership – you can become a partner within six years after joining as an Associate. Your progression is based solely on merit rather than seniority – we pride ourselves in having a meritocratic attitude in which strong performance is highly rewarded.

Dennis joined Singular in 2015 as part of the Johannesburg team where he gained intensive insight into organisational restructuring projects across Sub-Saharan Africa. After his adventures in Africa, Dennis explored more of the world as part of his role at Singular. In the course of several projects around strategy and innovation, Dennis worked in Eastern Europe and spent much time in Brazil, which gave him the opportunity to learn Portuguese.
Today, Dennis works very closely with the Munich office and is part of the core team of Singular’s Investment Advisory Services.
He says, “very recently, we conducted the commercial due diligence for a client’s target which we also supported during the first 100 days post-acquisition – being able to experience their development at first hand is simply fulfilling, also on a personal level.”
Dennis studied at the Otto Beisheim School of Management, WHU where he gained a BSc.; ESADE Business School, PUC Chile and ESCP Europe where he completed his MSc., graduating in business. Before Singular, he gathered extensive experience working for start-ups, and in the M&A and strategy departments of large international corporations and in consulting.
“The most valuable part about working at Singular is the opportunity to make a big impact by developing practical and pragmatic solutions. The dynamic work environment constantly challenges you to think like a consultant, an investor and an entrepreneur.”
