The Opportunity

Accenture is looking to recruit Digital Manufacturing & Operations EAM Maximo Consultants and/or Manager within our Industry X consulting practice in the UK or Ireland with a focus on designing and implementing Enterprise Asset Management solutions and capabilities especially with respect to the Maximo EAM solution. Within M&O we focus on areas such as manufacturing execution, factory automation and robotics, asset and equipment maintenance, connected worker, virtual and augmented reality, sophisticated analytics for operational and strategic decision making, and industrial IoT – all operating within a robust and secure infrastructure – both on-premise and in the Cloud.

This specific role is focused on helping our clients achieve their ambitions for digital transformation whilst delivering greenfield and brownfield factory / plant modernisation programmes. You will be working closely with technology and consulting colleagues across our Manufacturing and Operations domain throughout the lifecycle of a project, right from initial scoping, to design and subsequent implementation, testing and support.

We digitise, optimise and transform our clients’ traditional ways of planning, producing and shipping to be more agile and dynamic.

In this role you will:

  • Help clients target and deliver value through the digital transformation of their factory / plant / infrastructure operations with a particular focus on asset and work management
  • Help shape, sell and deliver projects that create tangible value – including current state assessments, seeing opportunities to increase efficiency, and developing application & technology enabled solutions and providing input into business cases and journey plans, to achieve the right value led outcomes for the client.
  • Design the application technology solutions to enable future ways of working – new operating models, business functions and processes, whilst working closely with business strategists, process owners and domain experts.
  • Use digital technologies to enable clients’ future-state business capabilities and drive targeted business outcomes.
  • Develop enduring, trust-based relationships with people at all career levels, both professionally and personally, internally, and externally. This includes receiving and providing (based on experience) coaching and career development across the IX practice.
  • Provide points of view on key industry challenges and technology trends, and present an impetus for change in industry context.
  • Help drive the development and refinement of offerings and generate collateral to support sales and origination activities (overviews, case studies, account planning, marketing information).
  • Support the sales process from origination to successful closing (including offering fine tuning, solution shaping, proposal preparation, client presentations).
  • Facilitate client innovation and requirements workshops and use a human-centered approach to solve problems, frame opportunities and achieve innovation through collaboration and co-creation.

The Person

We seek motivated professionals who are driven by the ability to address client problems with insights and innovation, and who thrive in a highly collaborative environment where team success takes priority over individual metrics.

We are looking for experience in the following areas:

  • Analysing clients’ strategy, operating vision, business imperatives and capabilities.
  • Selecting the appropriate application, technology and infrastructure components
  • In-depth experience of factory / plant operational challenges and opportunities.

  • Ability to create original concepts and theories for supporting current and future growth and efficiency goals through digital transformation.
  • Self-starter with demonstrated ability to work creatively and analytically in a problem-solving environment
  • Collaborating with client partners to identify and prioritise value opportunities and develop digital transformation roadmaps.
  • Assisting client business case development by estimating technology and implementation costs and effort estimation using own experience and Accenture guided estimating tools.
  • Providing strategic consultation to clients in defining or designing the future state application, platform and enterprise architecture
