  • Most definitely, if you want to be part of an organization that tackles the toughest sustainability challenges of our time, with the world’s leading multinationals, civil society and public organizations.

Furthermore we would like you to bring (it is OK if you do not tick all the boxes, we will help you grow):

  • At least 5-8 years of work experience in highly quantitative consulting and/or project management, and proven affinity with sustainability;
  • An entrepreneurial spirit with a growth mindset to take NewForesight to the next level;
  • Relevant Master’s degree or PhD;

  • Proven track record in product development and product implementation, with clear domain of analytical modelling in Excel and other software solutions (SQL, R, Python or VBA);
  • Ability to communicate clearly and concisely;
  • Comfortable giving and receiving clear and constructive feedback, investing in the growth of yourself and the people around you (360-degrees: juniors, peers, and seniors);
  • Willing to commute to the office, and travel domestic. International travel might occasionally be asked (while adhering to government restrictions and recommendations);
  • Respect and appreciate working with different personalities, backgrounds, and cultures.

“I am qualified and it sounds great, but what are you guys actually doing?”

The Challenge: With supply chains becoming increasingly more volatile to economic, environmental and social pressures, businesses are looking to apply innovations in the supply chain to make it more resilient, sustainable and fair to all stakeholders involved.

Your assignment: Identify innovations that allow for the supply chain to become more sustainable. How effective are such innovations? What are the risks involved? What are options to increase their financial attractiveness? After you have shown the most promising paths forward, you make a concrete case for the client. Where can they set up these operations? What do they need to make this a success? All these details are built into a large dynamic Excel model that explores how to combine everything into a successful business model. The results are shown in a report full of graphs and tables, references to literature and recommendations gathered from interviews with experts around the world.

In your day-to-day work this would translate into:

  • Lead projects that drive structural, sustainable change in a wide range of sectors (e.g. agriculture, circularity, energy transition, water and soil) where sustainability challenges need to be tackled;
  • Providing our clients with strategic advice on the continuous improvement of their sustainability strategy and their organization’s impact;
  • Oversee the development of analytical models, tools and products ensuring appropriate guidance, validation, and quality control;
  • Ensure most efficient and effective approach for the entire project, considering the client’s perspective and team considerations (e.g. resource availability, skills);
  • Lead the generation of hypotheses to solve complex issues, selecting the most effective analytical approaches and support the team in designing data-driven and fact-based solutions;
  • Conducting comprehensive analyses to understand the root-cause of clients’ issues, and the efficiency of their interventions;
  • Lead acquisition process and contribute to business development and build your own client base;
  • Provide mentorship and nurture the culture of continuously growing and improving within the organization;
  • Structure internal processes to enable further development of the organization’s strategy that will help the team and the company grow and excel;
  • Oversee the development fact-based innovative approaches, methodologies, and tools to enable fact-based decision making on sustainability challenges;
  • Convening stakeholders in commodity sectors around a common sustainability vision and supporting the development of joint action.

Working at NewForesight will bring you many things and most certainly it will bring you:

  • An opportunity to make transformative impact on people and planet;
  • Clear and ambitious growth opportunities within the company;
  • Room for developing own thought leadership and profile;
  • A fast-paced learning environment with ample training and guidance;

  • Company outings and office drinks;
  • A benefits package that includes a competitive market conform salary, 25 holidays, possibility of a bonus, a pension scheme, dedicated personal training budget, daily company supplied lunch and massages at the office;
  • Possibility to work remote for up to 40% of your time;
