About the role

As a Manager within the Working Capital team you will work with cross-functional stakeholders across many different Industries.

  • Financial analysis of opportunities for working capital reduction, within context of commercial requirements of the business
  • Assessment of operational and management teams within an organisation, identifying skill gaps and training needs
  • Working alongside management teams to implement and support project plans
  • Hands-on implementation of improved working capital processes
  • Leading the operational project delivery to drive cash generation from working capital

Essential skills and experience
  • Previous experience in Supply Chain and Procurement roles, or Working capital consulting experience in the UK or continental Europe

  • Good end-to-end understanding of flows of goods and services, information and money and how different functions cooperate internally and externally
  • Sound financial analysis skills
  • Strong commercial awareness and business analysis skills
  • Proficiency in analytics and visualisation tools, such as Alteryx, Tableau or Power BI (is beneficial but not necessary)

Whilst under current COVID-19 restrictions, the way in which we are working with clients has changed. We are primarily working remotely (with a small number of our team working from client sites) and as a team are working in line with the firm's and government's policies. As changes are made to the firm and national policies, it is anticipated that our working practices will continue to evolve and return to close working with our clients.

With an increasingly agile workforce, we're open to flexible and hybrid working requirements where appropriate and have many successful arrangements currently in place. You'll also be joining a team who welcomes your outlook and knowledge, whilst developing your skill set further within one of the world's leading professional organisations.
