The opportunity 

Globalization and technological developments rapidly change the world we live in. For many organizations, this results in complex challenges – in terms of risks as well as opportunities! The Supply Chain & Operations team of EY has a passion to support clients in embracing those challenges. We do this, for example, by transforming complex business processes, and structurally optimize the way our clients operate.

As part of our team, you will help our clients to bridge the gap between strategy and operational performance and with that, create long term value for the company and its customers. You will continuously be challenged on soft- as well as hard skills and will work closely with both the client and experienced EY colleagues. This way, your own development never stops!

What You Will Do - How can you make a lasting impact in a rapidly changing world?

  • As part of the Supply Chain & Operations team, you help organizations from various industries (FMCG, pharma, automotive, financial etc.) with their most complex challenges across different domains (Procurement, Logistics, Planning, Manufacturing, and Services).
  • You will make an impact from day one. For example, by preparing and facilitating workshops for the client on key subjects like inventory management, warehouse optimization, sustainable supply chains, smart factories (Industry 4.0), or continuous process improvement (Lean/Six Sigma).
  • In your daily work, you will also be exposed to the client frequently by conducting interviews or applying and supporting them to implement improved standard ways of working.
  • You will be gathering and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data, and collaborate with your colleagues to present the outcomes of your analysis to the client.
  • This way, you will experience a steep learning curve. Before you know, you are the expert in the field, providing the client with training and coaching!

Are you one of a kind? Are you communicative, social, analytic, pragmatic, and fun to work with? Are you eager to develop yourself as a consultant and within the Supply Chain & Operations domain specifically, and can you convince us that we could take you with us to the client as of tomorrow? Then we are pleased to welcome you as our new colleague!

Recruitment procedure – How can you prepare for a long life together?

The recruitment procedure consists of an (online) assessment and two interviews.

Due to laws and regulations, and because EY (and in some cases its clients) has high demands on the reliability and integrity of its employees, every new employee will be screened. Depending on your rank the pre-employment screening could contain the following: Certificate of Conduct (in Dutch: VOG) or - if requesting a Dutch VOG is not possible - Criminal Background Check of the country you are currently living or have lived during the last five years, integrity questionnaire, verification of ID, diploma’s and/or work experience and consultation of the Dutch insolvency registry.
