We are:
Supply Chain, and we move fast, think fast, and work fast. Our Fortune 500 clients need big-picture change, so we come at their challenges from all sides with functional insights, data power, digital leadership, and extensive industry know-how. It’s our job to show clients how to take major leaps forward in planning, procurement, manufacturing, and fulfillment. How do we do it? We call out the most important metrics. We cut costs. We connect suppliers and customers across the extended supply chain. And we create strategies and operating models that really work. Visit us here to find out more about Supply Chain.
 
 
You are:
A practiced procurement expert. You know how to make supply chains work for clients, so they get what they need to make their products when they need it and without any fuss. And you’ve got the real-life experience and analytical know-how to spot ways to cut out the hassles and cut costs.
 
The work:
  • Spot and solve procurement problems using your analytical skills to dive into data and check that against the real world
  • Persuade senior managers at the client and Accenture about the benefit of new approaches
  • Decide what methods and procedures to use when completing projects
  • Work alone or lead and manage small-to-medium sized teams with diverse backgrounds, skills and knowledge as needed
  • Make sure clients’ procurement operations support their overall objectives—and be ready to diplomatically challenge old fashioned approaches if needed
  • Give clients insights that help make their companies work better, faster, and more efficiently
  • Use digital tech to help clients find new ways to make things more cheaply, and make their organizations more effective and efficient
  • Lead workshops that find ways to make procurement and client processes more efficient
  • Be ready to rack up those air miles with client visits Monday to Friday
 



Qualifications

 
Here’s what you need:
  • At least 2 years’ experience working in sourcing and procurement
  • At least 2 years working as a consultant
  • A Bachelor’s Degree
 
Bonus points if:
  • You’ve got great data and analytics skills
  • You can spot where to find new value in supply chain and procurement, and explain it simply
  • You know how to run strategic cost takeout projects
  • You know your way around procurement tools like Ariba, Coupa, and iValua
  • You’re as good at communicating (in person and in writing) as you are at slicing and dicing data
