Job description



Growth comes from solving problems that matter for people – for customers, employees, and society at large. At EY Seren we focus on helping companies reimagine what it means to grow by looking beyond short-term financial measures to solve the problems that really matter. We are motivated every day by the desire to improve individual wellbeing & inclusiveness; shape the future of society & work; and care for the planet & its finite resources.

We’re a group of world-class strategists, designers, researchers, and technologists. We provide full-service business transformation. Building a better working world, by creating new ways to serve people and help them grow – that’s growth re-imagined.

 

The opportunity

We are looking for individuals with experience transforming the sales function for B2B organisations either as a management consultant, or as part of an internal sales strategy and transformation team. It’s an exciting time to be joining our team as we are experiencing significant client demand for this capability, which means we need some new talent to help us grow even faster.

As a Manager, you will take responsibility for the end-to-end delivery of client engagements, managing teams of between 3-5 consultants and being the first port of call for our clients.

· 
Designing and implementing sales enablement capabilities – this would involve helping our clients to think through how they better align sales and marketing activities so that teams are able to have more impactful conversations with their customers

At Manager level, you will not only be developing the recommendations that will ultimately be implemented by our clients, but you will also be a key contributor to the growth of EY Seren’s business, by identifying potential opportunities for our services and helping develop new offers and thought leadership to take to market.
