You’re a dynamic and motivated business professional who thrives in a fast-paced environment. You like being at the helm of transformation projects with unpredictable outcomes.

You are energized by productive brainstorming sessions with management, in-depth data analyses and agile consulting. You’re quick to understand business challenges and propose strategic (and technological) solutions to help improve procurement processes.

You’re on the ball, 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 procurement, you will be joining our Spend Management team, that advises companies on how to optimize their procurement organization and spend management activities, such as supply management strategy, strategic sourcing & category management, supplier relationship management, operating process and performance management. 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
