Job Detail

Are you willing to take the challenge of building a better working world in a dynamic, digital environment?

The opportunity

In today’s shape-shifting world, with raw material and products that are either unavailable or unpredictable, with a higher emphasis on sustainability and with a broader social awareness of the origin of goods, companies are forced to rethink their entire Procurement strategy and operating model. Rebalancing Quality and Price with Sustainability targets are on top of the CPO agenda together with a more tailored collaboration and visibility with the entire upstream supply chain. This need for greater agility, while the bottom line is constantly watched, puts pressure on the procurement organization and the category managers/ buyers who are expected to keep pace within an ever-accelerating environment.

At EY, we assist our clients with those challenges through a unique combination of industry-specific insights, practical application of digital and emerging technologies and collaborating with a broad range of alliance partners. We ask better questions to find better answers, delivering better outcomes and shape the future of supply chain focused on Innovation, Technology and Sustainability.
For our growing Supply Chain and Operations practice in Belgium we are looking for a Senior Consultant to strengthen our Procurement team.

Your key responsibilities

As a Senior Consultant you support and (co-)lead project delivery teams improving our client’s business performance, in line with our Exceptional Client Service approach, while helping grow our practice outside of your client work. Drawing on your knowledge, skills and experience, you will start to build valued relationships with external clients and internal peers, support bids, proposals and thought leadership.

You will work independently as well as in teams. You will coach and support consultants and client team members, perform analyses and report finding and results. You will share your expertise with about 40 other colleagues in the Supply Chain & Operations team of EY Belgium. Our team focuses on delivering challenging projects across the entire supply chain. Typical projects are the creation of a supply chain strategy, network (re-)design, supply chain planning, logistics & distribution, sourcing & procurement, and manufacturing excellence.

In addition, you’ll actively establish and strengthen the relationships with our regional and global Supply Chain leadership teams and take part in our international communities.

Skills and attributes for success

Competitive business today is all about making intelligent, informed choices. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about helping our clients to solve their toughest supply chain problems.

Your knowledge and experience, combined with EY’s thought leadership on the future of Supply Chain Management, will allow you to provide innovative insights for clients, adapting our service offerings, solutions, and methods to fit the operational teams and cultural needs. You will consequently actively grow your knowledge by taking part in educational programs to continually develop your personal skills.

As a valued member of the team, you will have a key contribution in our learning culture and in coaching team members to achieve their professional development goals and personal growth.

You are thorough and result-oriented and work together with the client on implementing solutions. You often work in an international environment on projects with a significant impact on company results.

  • A master’s degree, preferably Industrial Engineering, Business, Supply Chain or Logistics
  • Approximately 2-5 years of professional experience with a demonstrated track record of delivering sustained improvements in business performance, gained in industry and/or consulting
  • You are passionate about Procurement and can rely on strong knowledge and experience in this field or one of the sub-fields (category management, supplier relationship management, Risk management,…),
  • You are familiar with procurement technologies (eg. SAP Ariba, Coupa, Zycus,…);
  • You have experience in one of the followings sectors: Public Sector, Pharma, Advanced Manufacturing or FMCG
  • Fluent written and spoken English, French and/or Dutch
  • Excellent analytical skills, drive, enthusiasm, conceptual thinking, communication and influencing skills, and pragmatism in execution

It’s a plus if you also have

  • APICS certification is a plus

  • Experience working with specialized solutions including SAP Ariba, Coupa, Zycus or other
  • Any other additional Supply Chain, Project Management, Data & Analytics related certifications

What we look for

An energetic individual with a passion for Supply Chain looking to solve real business challenges with leading solutions. A team player with relevant experience and knowledge of Supply Chain & Operations, who is aligned to our core EY values and looking to be part of our growing team

  • Entrepreneurial spirit & excellent business development skills
  • Intrinsic motivation to help establish and strengthen relationships with our clients
  • Commitment to support the development of others through coaching, asking better questions, and leading by example

What we offer

  • You will join an ambitious, international, dynamic team, genuinely passionate about their work, within a leading global professional services firm;
  • We offer extensive training, both on technical matters, as well on soft skills and project management;
  • We offer you an attractive remuneration package (competitive salary, net allowances and extensive fringe benefits: company car with fuel card, smart phone, health insurance, pension plan, etc.);
  • We are proud of our flexible working arrangements, and we will support you to build a successful career and deliver excellent client service without sacrificing your personal priorities. While our client-facing profession might require regular travel, and at times working at client sites, we are committed to help you achieve a work-life balance;
  • At EY we are passionate about the inclusion and support of individuals of all groups; we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability status.
