Objectives and Key Deliverables
A major project to build an innovation platform to explore new industrialization pathways and to accelerate the transition of German industry towards the circular economy.
The initiative is rooted in two beliefs:
* Decoupling production and consumption through new business systems, next generation materials and closed-loop value chains will be as disruptive for industry as renewables, de-central generation and energy efficiency have been for the energy sector.
* If managed well – the emerging 21st century industrial model can allow for a renewal and ultimately the growth and competitiveness that Europe’s and Germany’s industry seek.
This requires identifying, building and activating the 20-40 major, new, high growth markets - materials, components, products or product-related services.
This is a joint venture between our company, a major public sector organisation and a foundation dedicated to the circular economy.
The initial concept phase of the project, 3-4 months, is to develop an analytical model, a program plan and select and engage potential members and secure funding for the next phases.
We are initially looking for someone to lead this phase of the project but ideally someone who has a strong interest continuing longer term.
Strong analytical and conceptual problem-solving skills. Ability to promptly assimilate a high volume of content and industry knowledge. Some prior exposure to circular economy concepts is beneficial.
Experience working for a strategy consulting firm.
This will be an intensive, immersive project so we require someone who is committed to fully being part of the team and leading it, in collaboration with a senior Partner and other colleagues.
The consultant must be based in Germany.
