Management Consultant – Operational Excellence, Water / Utilities

Who you’ll be working with

Capgemini Invent is the global strategy and transformation consulting organisation of the Capgemini Group, specialising in advising and supporting enterprises in significant transformation, from innovative strategy to execution and with an unstinting focus on results. With the new digital economy creating significant disruptions and opportunities, our global team of over 3,600 talented individuals work with leading companies and governments to master Digital Transformation, drawing on our understanding of the digital economy and our leadership in business transformation and organisational change.

The focus of your role

To meet the demands of both the regulators and increasingly savvy consumers, companies in the water industry across the UK are investing millions in Opex and Capex improvements and digital transformation. Given the scale of investment there is a very strong focus from regulators, investors and the companies alike to ensure these programmes are delivered effectively and drive out efficiency at all levels.

 

As a result we are seeing a significant increase in demand for our successful Operational Excellence Consultants who are already working with major utilities organisations.  We have built a successful track record of improving organisation performance through deployment of leading edge operational and digital practices whilst delivering major cost efficiencies in the process.  Our consultants bring to bear vast utilities experience, a strong business improvement skillset, an understanding of technology and a highly collaborative approach.  We need more talented people like them to join our team.

What you’ll do

The primary role involves the delivery of leading edge operational excellence and sustained performance improvement in front line operational, customer and capital environments working collaboratively with staff of all levels from across industry.  You will provide the Utilities or Asset Intensive industry expertise to support the development of innovative and pragmatic operational excellence solutions in the Water sector. You will form part of an experienced and flexible project delivery team, helping clients to realise benefits and transform behaviours which will lead to improved efficiency, improved customer experience and improved business outcomes.

What you’ll bring

You’ll bring experience in Utilities or other Programme Delivery and Asset Intensive regulated industries such as Rail and Aviation. You may already be a consultant or you may be working within a Water company or similar Utility company, energy generation organisation, or an engineering/technology vendor to Utilities.
