  • You have 5+ years of work experience as a (digital) strategy consultant for one or more of the best strategy consultant firms or digital boutique consultancy firms around the globe. Banking, payments, tech or SaaS experience is a plus. However, a can-do mentality is of more importance than many years of the perfect experience.

You know the tools and best-practices that are common in the market. Next to that, your financial analysis / ROI assessment and business case building skills are second to none.
  • You know like nobody else what the “bar” is for a great and impactful consulting outcome and respective deliverables. You are passionate about creating the most impactful analyses, business cases and high-quality pitches.
  • You have strong interpersonal and communication skills that will ensure successful customer engagements and collaboration across multiple teams, cultures and timezones
  • You have excellent English speaking, writing and presentation skills, as well as a strong ability to persuade, inspire and motivate others. You have extensive "owning the room" experience, allowing you to naturally command the room.
  • You have the ability to prioritize and plan effectively with a demonstrated ability to work well under pressure and in ambiguity. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and stay flexible and adaptable to growth and change.
  • You know how to spot commercial opportunities and translate these in close cooperation with sales into solid presentations, pitches and/or tailored proposals.
  • You naturally collaborate and generate a positive spirit of cooperation while coordinating diverse activities and groups within a team environment.
  • You have the courage to learn and to share your learning process with us
  • You have the willingness and motivation to travel on a regular basis.
