We are currently looking for top talent to reinforce our internal supply chain consulting team - Supply Chain Strategies (SCS).

    The team was established 10 years ago to realize key business goals by leveraging the scale of the global Supply Chain network and resources. They brought into Unilever methodologies to create value by looking at the Supply Chain differently, being more strategic and thinking longer-term. The team and its role have evolved over time and SCS continues to challenge itself on the why, what and how strategic Supply Chain initiatives can create value towards the company’s most ambitious goals.

    • 5-8 years’ experience in a strategy consulting environment OR in consumer goods

    • Masters qualification required. MBA would be a plus.

    • Prior experience in procurement, manufacturing, logistics, R&D, planning, digital supply chain or ecommerce is a plus

    • A solid understanding of cost accounting, financial accounting, and project management

    • Very strong storyboarding, presentation, and communication skills

    • Strong problem-solving skills, analytical ability, and critical thinking

    • Can work and build rapport with stakeholders across functions and seniority, in a multicultural environment

    We are looking for people who:

    • Have an endless drive to learn and excel in their work

    • Do not hesitate to challenge status quo

    • Are high achievers with intelligence, energy and resilience to solve complex problems

    • Are strong team players, creating an environment of enthusiasm and positivity
