You’re a dynamic and motivated business professional with a passion for manufacturing processes. You’re a team player who likes taking up an active role in improvement projects. You thrive in both small and large project teams

You are energized by interactive workshops with C-level executives, middle management and shopfloor operators. You’re quick to understand business challenges and propose strategic (and technological) solutions to help improve manufacturing processes.  

You’re flexible and can handle the uncertainty our customers face in their business transformation journeys – you’re there to guide them into the right direction!  

Who are we?

At delaware, we have a dedicated Management Consulting team that helps companies to transform beyond technology. We operate across industries and tackle the needs and challenges of different stakeholders, helping them to transform their function, their team, their strategy and ultimately, their business model. We leverage our expertise to improve business performance and grow world-class capabilities. 

As a management consultant specialized in manufacturing, you will be joining our Manufacturing team, that advises companies on how to optimize their production environment and shopfloor activities. You will for example help companies to automate their factory using robotics or other technology. This is a growing practice within delaware, with lots of opportunities for you to shine in projects!  

Just so you know: delaware has its offices in Antwerp, Ghent, Kortrijk, Lummen, Liège and Wavre, but we also spend a lot of time working together with our customers on-site.
