We are looking for an Innovation Consultant (aka business consultant/analyst)

February 2021

Business consultant / analyst

Your role

Let's take you on a journey. A company wants to be more innovative. A great goal, but not very clear. You go about and explore what that actually means: Do they want to create an app? Explore the future? Set up an innovation lab? Create a roadmap? Implement a new process? Create a new service? Improve their existing service(s)? You analyse and explore the core needs, go about and get things going.

On the other hand you take an idea and, through workshops and interviews, you identify and analyse needs of the business and the clients and determine the impact on existing processes, systems and tools. Whenever you see the opportunity you kindly challenge the question and construct better solutions together with all stakeholders. You make sure your analysis is of added value for all involved: the technical team, the process owner(s), management, etc.

Knowledge and skills

  • You are passionate about business analysis and have at least 2 years working experience
  • You like to facilitate the way forward and choose your methods or techniques accordingly
  • You like to learn new things and aims to always broaden your perspective

  • You are organized and able to work on multiple projects at the same time.
  • You are a born team player and dare to take end-responsibility.
  • You speak Dutch and English, French is a plus.

* We are looking for these competences, but do not expect that you have them all (yet).
