Digital Strategist Lead Manufacturing - Badenoch + Clark

Please mind that several years of consulting experience with a renowned consultancy firm, such as the Big4 or similar, is required for this role.

One of the biggest consultancy firms worldwide is looking for a digital strategist lead for a new European innovation hub under construction in Amsterdam. The focus is to help clients with their business, so they are still at the top of their industry in 2025 (of further). Creating value for the long term.

About the client

This international consulting firm was set up 50 years ago and at the time was mainly known for large-scale implementations. The high quality and exceptional results created a demand from clients for consulting on a strategic and tactical level. This agency is now working end-to-end on various issues in several sectors. Today our client is a stable and fast-growing organization with an impressive portfolio of top 100 companies.

They are now “in the age of Business 4.0”. An era of opportunity for exponential growth, as well as the threat of drastic disruption. As technologies change, touchpoints multiply and new competitions emerge, their clients need to innovate, adapt, track and build competitive advantage faster than ever before. To their clients, they don’t just promise the capability to ‘catch up’ with their industry, but rather, to help create the future and set the pace of the entire industry they operate in.

Their new innovation hub (in Amsterdam) is designed for driving digital transformation across industries by leveraging the power of a global collaborative ecosystem of startups, technology partners, academia plus research and innovation. The greenfield innovation setting of this hub brings together the key ingredients to accelerate the pace of change.

An ideal candidate would be able to apply the discipline and leadership of management consulting to digital transformation programs.
