Strategic Transformation Senior Manager

Experience level: Senior Manager

Employment type: Full Time



The Team:

KPMG Boxwood is the Centre of Excellence within KPMG for Strategic Enterprise-wide Transformation. We help our client make sense of their business strategy through clear, realistic and achievable business model and operating model design and implementation. We are the bridge between Strategy and Operational Transformation (HR, Finance, IT, Op Ex etc.). We operate at the CEO/CFO/MD levels within our clients.


We are a talented, committed and inspiring team of professionals and consultants from a wide range of backgrounds and experience. We work closely together in small, high-impact teams. Our industry expertise is often varied, with many differing backgrounds, but our expertise lies in one of Strategy/Business Model Design, Enterprise-wide Operating Model design, Data & Analytics and OM implementation. We expect expertise in one or more of these, and the experience to be able to apply that expertise to differing industries.


Our clients vary from Multi-nationals to UK private and public companies. They are committed to radical shifts in the business and to changing the way their business works in revolutionary not evolutionary ways. Our transformations take place either across the whole of the business, or within specific (often geographic) coverage areas.


As a team we are close-knit. We have our own culture and a dedicated community and activities in support of it, with quarterly community sessions and monthly optional social events. Our culture is supportive, challenging, inclusive and fun.


In 2019, KPMG Boxwood (separate to KPMG) came 18th in the Financial Times’ list of the best Management Consultancy Companies in the UK. With a team of 40.
KPMG Boxwood wants to enhance its leadership and project delivery capability. Senior Managers have arguably the most important role in our business for this very reason: They lead and run our day-to-day projects, motivating the teams, developing our people, bringing a wealth of previous project experience and ensuring quality in execution. They also are fundamental to our Sales capability as we expect them to work with our Directors and Partners to shape, hone and deliver compelling, high quality and winning pitches and responses. As the engines of our team, and the people our clients work with most closely they need to be excellent communicators, leaders and thinkers. They also need to show that they are comfortable reaching for a sales target, and working collegiately with the team and the wider firm to hit it.


The Role:

As Senior Managers we believe there’s a vital role in our community as well. As a ‘bridge’ between the sales and delivery they help keep both parties true to the values and purpose of KPMG Boxwood. This comes from being day-to-day involved in the delivery, but also as a voice helping shape the strategic direction of the team. As such you will be expected to be willing to take a role in shaping the future direction of KPMG Boxwood, and helping bring our team with us.


The expertise of our Senior Managers feeds into how we work. We ask them to help develop and innovate in our method and in our delivery. We ask for active participation in our Practices to develop fresh IP and to develop the compelling propositions of the future.


Finally, there is a key role to play in developing our people and bringing them through. You will act as a formal coach to individuals and also as a point of (quiet or loud) inspiration to our people. You’ll bring your own style but developing colleagues is key with developing the skills, experience, resilience and capability to operate in very trying projects.


The Person:

As a candidate you will be expected to have:


• Consulting experience from either a Big-4 or Boutique
• Deep experience in how to design and to implement Strategic Transformation – either from consulting or industry
• Evidence and a track record of commercial sales success within consulting, and evidence of ability to both originate work and to develop from existing accounts to deliver on personal and team targets
• Expertise in one of the 4 practice areas (Strategy/Business Model, Operating-Model Design, Data & Analytics, OM Implementation)
• People management experience and evidence of career coaching and coachee development under your guidance
• Evidence of working within the C-suite and influencing CEOs et al
• Leadership experience, and the desire to do more of it
• Ambition for yourself and for growing a dynamic and inspiring team
• Based in London/South East, but able to travel nationally and internationally


In addition it would be desirable to have:


• Specific industry expertise in one or more industries that is relevant to Strategic Transformation
• Deep understanding of how to use varying consulting methods and approaches within different client environments
• Digital Transformation experience – The integration the of Digital capability into more traditional OM design and delivery
• Experience in using data visualization and data analytics tools to support decision making;
• Change management and how to apply it within transformation
• Commercial acumen and flexibility in contracting in the selling of consulting work
• Network of suitable contacts from which to expand business development opportunities
