Summary of Role

We are looking for a highly motivated Senior Consultant to support our growing work helping clients to design, implement and manage supplier engagement and capacity-building programs for their supply chains. As our leading clients set more ambitious sustainability goals and policies, they can no longer just focus on their own company operations. Engaging the supply chain is a challenging but critical area for companies to drive environmental and social transformation.

This role will be client-facing and require direct engagement with a significant volume of suppliers as well as client Sustainability, Sourcing and/or Procurement teams. This role will focus on establishing engagement program policies and processes, setting up and maintaining supplier tracking and data-collection systems, developing supplier-facing guidance and training materials, and directly communicating with and responding to supplier questions

Projects and clients will span across a diverse set of industries, ranging from Technology to Consumer Goods, to Food and Agriculture, and may focus on a variety of sustainability focus areas, such as greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)/science-based targets (SBTs), water and/or waste to diversity, equity and inclusion metrics and activities.

 

Key Requirements

  • At least 4-years professional experience (a master’s degree may account for two of these years)
  • Proven work experience working in supply chain, sourcing/procurement, or any supplier-facing role
  • An established understanding of sustainability issues is preferred, especially around energy and greenhouse gas emissions, science-based targets, supplier diversity, or other relevant topics.
  • Excellent communications, project management, and consulting skills
  • Effective time management and organizational skills. Ability to respond positively to pressure and take a flexible approach to a dynamic, fast moving and changing work environment
  • Professional presence with the ability to quickly establish personal credibility and demonstrate expertise
  • Able to work on virtual teams across different time zones

Our ideal candidate will be someone who really wants to flourish in a technical analytics environment at the leading edge of sustainability.
