We are currently growing our Working Capital optimization team and are looking for experienced hires to join us (2 to 4 years' experience with a minimum of 1-2 years hands on working capital experience). Practical experience of managing improvement projects covering at least one of Payables, Receivables or Inventory processes is a must.
We are looking for people who are passionate about what they do and are able to transfer their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to help develop the wider team. Our approach typically involves working closely with clients to diagnose the key issues then develop a sustainable solution and implement it, usually under tight time constraints. A key focus on any assignment is transferring skills and knowledge to clients so that the solution is embedded and owned by them.
We work across a range of situations, including financially stressed/distressed, turnaround situations that require a rapid focus on cash and working capital efficiency or more performance improvement situations where we work on embedding change into the culture of the client as well as across its processes.
