Management Consultant – Digital Strategy & Platform Architecture, Energy & Utilities Sector

The focus of your role:

The Energy and Utilities industry is continuing to experience unprecedented change. The impact of digital disruption is increasing across all parts of the energy value chain, and at the same time regulators are shifting to focus on consumer outcomes. We have an important role to play: The need to understand, design and implement change based on drivers including climate change, decarbonisation of the energy sector, energy storage, new economic models, and new technology are increasing, alongside our core capabilities of customer experience transformation, asset and operations transformation, cost reduction and operating model transformation. 

Some of our recent work has included; creating the future operating model for our client’s UK operations, designing an award winning future customer experience for the competitive arm of a water sector client, delivering a multi-year and multi-dimension change programme for an energy distribution company, and leading the global implementation of change for an energy-technology business.  We have also built blockchain prototypes, written thought leadership on the future role of Distribution Systems Operators and deployed agile at scale for new customer experiences through digital channels.

In this role, you will work with our Energy & Utilities clients to shape their journey, co-designing and supporting their transformation. We are looking for enthusiastic consultants experienced in the delivery of Change to join our Utilities Sector Team and you will be part of the Sector Transformation team delivering successful end to end transformation programmes with our clients.
