Vacancy Junior Consultant at Steward Redqueen

Steward Redqueen is a strategy consultancy firm that aims to ‘make business work for society’. We do this by executing sustainability and impact projects globally.

For our work we rely on three core competencies:

  • Quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex problems
  • Implementation of sustainability and impact in operational processes or strategies
  • Development of tools to enable efficient management of sustainability and impact

Our clients vary from multinationals like Heineken and Coca-Cola, financial institutions like Standard Chartered or the Inter-American Development Bank to societal organizations like the GIIN or DOEN Foundation.

The function
The Junior Consultant will support our team executing projects. The exact nature of activities varies between projects and will have a quantitative angle, especially the first few years. Examples of activities are designing models to integrate sustainability in an organization, collecting and analysing information to formulate strategies in the area of sustainability and impact, or developing training programs and designing sustainability toolkits.

The working environment
It is important to us that the candidate consciously chooses for the working environment. Several relevant characteristics are:

  • working in a closely interacting and passionate team
  • high level of dynamism as each consultant works on several projects
  • flat organization where constructive criticism is welcomed
  • collaboration with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds
  • the opportunity, but also the expectation to take own initiatives

Finally, we consider it important that the candidate develops her or himself both as a person and  as a professional while working for our organization. With the candidate we will work on a personal development plan and make resources available.

The profile
We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate who just graduated. Relevant internship or work experience is an advantage but not required. The successful candidate has:

  • graduated from university with a relevant Master degree 
  • affinity with the focus and the activities of Steward Redqueen
  • independent problem-solving abilities
  • strong (macro) economic skills and knowledge
  • a good feel for qualitative as well as quantitative analysis
  • experience with data-analyses in Excel
  • strong verbal as well as written communication skills 

As we are operating in an international context but also work for Dutch clients, fluency in English and proficiency in Dutch are required. Proficiency in other languages is an advantage.

We have an increasing focus on online solutions, dashboards and toolkits. IT related skills and experiences are therefore also considered an advantage.

The practicalities
The application deadline is June 30, 2017. Applications are only considered if you submit both a motivation letter and CV before the deadline. Dutch working permit is required.

The Junior Consultant position will begin with an initial 6 months trial period. We are looking for someone who can start in September 2017.

Vacancy IT-intern at Steward Redqueen

Job description            

Our clients want to understand their impact on planet and society. Companies nowadays consider issues like water use, taxation, CO2 emissions or supply chain effects an integral part of business. To steer their performance towards maximum social return and minimal environmental footprint, companies need to track their performance and analyse where there is room for improvement. And for this, companies need data; from their own organisation, from clients and even big data can help provide insight in the environment and social performance of a company.

Steward Redqueen helps clients build data management systems to efficiently collect/aggregate complex data sets and design an interactive performance dashboard to visualize the outcomes. The dashboard enables the company to easily analyse its performance and build scenarios on impact simulations. The data management systems and dashboards are developed, stored and hosted in an online environment. Clients can access the dashboard through authorized log in.

We have an internship vacancy for a student who will contribute improving the tools that we currently offer our clients as well as expand the set of tools with new solutions.  The new (set of) tool(s) would enable our clients to:

  1. Easily collect data on-line from multiple sources
  2. Save the data in a centrally located database
  3. Make the data available for further reporting and visualisation

Next to developing new tools, the intern would be invited to learn how to work with our current way of making dashboards for clients. This means the intern will be actively involved in projects including client contacts, project management and analysis. Also thinking along with us to integrate big data into our applications is a part of the job. The intern will be working side by side with one of Steward Redqueen’s senior consultants and will have real impact on the business by developing tools that are directly used by new or existing clients.

Job requirements
We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate that:

  • is looking to apply his or her knowledge in a real consulting environment
  • possesses the right programming skills (to be discussed)
  • preferably is in the later stages of his or her curriculum
  • can start on the short term 

What we offer
We offer the opportunity to work for an international consultancy and develop products that will be directly used by clients. The internship would last 4-6 months. The candidate will be a part of a young team (10-15 consultants) in which he/she gets the opportunity to develop his/her  personal and content-related skills. Furthermore, the intern will be introduced to general consulting practices in a professional environment. We also offer a market-rate allowance.

Please submit your motivation letter and CV to Bernard Leussink: bernard.leussink@stewardredqueen.com. For questions please call: 023-5530400.
