In this role you’ll also be a part of our Corporate and Business Functions practice, which drives shared services and support function redesign and transformation engagements.

What You'll Do

You will engage at a deep level across our clients’ businesses, working in small teams to build the capabilities, systems, and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results and then ensure those results are sustained.

Our implementation work is about problem solving, coaching, and delivering lasting outcomes. In addition to applying outstanding problem-solving approaches, you will be a practical, experienced, and excellent coach to our clients.

Projects may focus on optimizing functions such as IT, Finance, HR, Procurement, Legal and Facilities Management, redefining end-to-end cross functional processes such as Procure-to-Pay and Order-to-Cash; and assisting clients to develop integrated enterprise services. Our experience spans the whole improvement cycle from initial diagnostics and planning, through design, to implementation and value capture.
