  • Synthesising findings and developing compelling C-suite level presentations that clearly articulate the findings of your analyses/recommendations and act as a solid foundation for decision making
  • Applying robust project management practices for strategic engagements by structuring work in an efficient manner to manage scope, timelines, accountabilities and outcomes

We're interested in hearing from people who have:

  • Taken a career break of 2+ years and are interested in returning to work on a permanent basis
  • Experience in strategy consulting (in-house or at a professional services firm)
  • Excellent strategic thinking skills, including a hypothesis-based and structured approach to analytical and conceptual problem solving
