Strategy Consultant - Senior Manager
"This is a specialist practice area operating as part of a global business that has cultivated and maintained a culture of innovation that focuses on revolutionising all things digital across multiple industries and sectors".
I know - I've heard that kind of thing before too, many times…. The less 'overly corporate' way to explain it would be that they have benefitted from trial and error and instead of trying to do lots of things quite well, they have created this group to do one thing *really* well - which is advise major companies on how to create pioneering digital strategies that transforms engagement with their customers.
They've currently got over 2000 large-scale innovation projects doing just that for major multi-nationals and that's why they need good people, to continue their success and growth. Also, when I talk about innovation, it's not just for the sake of sounding interesting - from launching the first ever internet banking to the first ever AI reading Bluetooth app, it's about genuinely interesting and NEW things and this group have a history of delivering firsts.
Hiring at multiple levels, this particular role is 'Senior Manager' level, which essentially means that in addition to developing those strategies, you'll have a track record of Solving Business Problems, Making Informed Business Decisions and Planning Solutions. It's also a leadership position, so you need to be able to manage teams and also be THE trusted point of contact for the clients, most of which are in their core vertical markets - Energy, Financial Services, Retail, and Consumer Products.
If you prefer the requirements in bullet points…
Well, the base location is E1 London. Work/Life balance is prioritised wherever possible, but you'll sometimes need to be working directly on client site, meaning you should be flexible with working and travelling throughout the UK. You'll have all the benefits you'd expect (private medical for you the husband/wife and children, solid pension, 25 days leave, etc) and a few that are nice to have (gym reimbursement and free lattes). But mainly this opportunity is about working with like-minded people on complex projects that set trends - so get in touch if you want to know more.
