Business Transformation Senior Managers - UK

Who we are

At Arca Blanca, we are building a new kind of consulting business that will give clients the best they can get from our industry. Using proprietary data-driven decision support tools and leading thinking in business model design, innovation and implementation, we accelerate the delivery of results and ensure our clients are in control of their growth agenda.

Taking a collaborative approach, we use our analytical capabilities to ensure that changes not only embed quickly but are sustained across the entire organisation. Our experience spans a wide range of industry sectors and capability areas with clients who are facing pressure from markets, competitors and investors.

Our open and supportive culture is built from our passionate team of award-winning business transformation experts and data scientists. Our consultants are well-connected continuous learners who love new challenges. Tenacious about results, we always do what is right for the client. We promote equality and an environment where the whole team contributes.

The opportunity

We are looking to grow our team with talented Senior Managers that bring experience in designing, leading and delivering complex transformation programmes. You will manage diverse teams through all phases of an engagement and take a lead role in the relationship with the client. As well as heading several large programmes, you may also provide oversight and input for a number of smaller projects.  You will play a central role in building internal capability and expertise through coaching others, developing thought leadership and sharing best practice.  Through your personal and professional networks, you will autonomously identify existing and new business development opportunities. This is a truly exciting opportunity for a seasoned transformation consultant looking to apply their expertise to a new and differentiated approach.
