The firm

Steward Redqueen is a consultancy firm with the mission to make business work for society. We develop strategies and tools to enable our clients to understand and manage their impact.

For our work we rely on four core competencies:

  • Quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex problems;
  • Implementation of sustainability and impact in operational processes or strategies;
  • Building capacity among (financial) institutions on sustainability;
  • Development of software tools to enable efficient management of sustainability and impact.

Our clients vary from multinationals such as Heineken and Coca-Cola, financial institutions such as Standard Chartered and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), to societal organizations such as the GIIN or DOEN Foundation.

The function

You tasks will vary between doing research, designing models to integrate sustainability in operations, collecting and analysing information to formulate strategies, developing training programs, and designing sustainability toolkits. Your work will rely substantially on data analysis, quantitative methods, and Excel. You will work under the supervision and guidance of other consultants or partners.

The working environment

Working at Steward Redqueen means being a part of an energetic and passionate team. We steer a working environment which is:

  • Dynamic, as consultants work together on several projects at a time;
  • Flat , as we value everyone’s opinion and encourage constructive criticism;
  • Collaborative, as we work with colleagues and clients from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Last but not least, we aim to help all our consultants grow in their careers. We will support you in drawing your own career development plan, and will provide the resources you need to implement it.

  • strong communication skills, both verbal and written;

We have an increasing focus on software solutions, dashboards, and toolkits. Therefore IT-related skills/experience is also considered an advantage.
