What you’ll do

Our Principal Consultant will lead teams to create client specific solutions to help retailers differentiate; enabling first-mover advantage in an increasingly competitive global market.

You’ll bring extensive retail experience gained through a combination of industry and consulting roles.

You’ll be expected to develop and strengthen peer to peer level relationships with our clients.

You’ll have a proven ability to lead teams, motivate others and communicate complex ideas clearly and succinctly.

You’ll be an individual who gains the respect of clients and colleagues.

You’ll bring strong functional knowledge, including but not limited to strategy, business development, account management, marketing and sales and digital development.

You’ll be an entrepreneurial and results driven achiever.
