Associate Director - Mobility 2030

Location: London

Capability: Management Consulting

Service line: Strategy

Experience level: B

Employment type: Full Time


The Team
Mobility 2030 is the convergence of 3 major disruptions: electric and alternate drivetrains, connected and autonomous vehicles and Mobility-as-a-Service. The resultant ‘perfect storm’ is impacting automotive, supply chain, energy, technology, infrastructure, funds, banks, retail organisations and Government. Things are changing faster than expected driven by rapid developments in technology, regulation, competition and consumer behaviour.

Over the next 5 to 12 years organisations will require significant advisory support: multi £m transformations, multi £m deals, customer and industry 4.0 advice, technology and managed service support. KPMG has the opportunity to establish itself at the forefront of this change, create new relationships and win significant revenues.

The Role

• Lead teams to address complex market, strategic, operational and organisational issues, with a focus on delivering Mobility 2030 and growth projects (although you will be part of a broader team addressing wider strategic issues that you may be involved with as well). As an Associate Director / Senior Manager, your role includes both leadership of day-to-day delivery on client engagements as well as participating in the leadership of the broader team.

• Plan and design financial and operational analyses to support development of insights and identify potential efficiency / structural change opportunities for clients.

• Develop business cases and implementation plans to underpin successful delivery.

• Design changes to the clients’ business and operating models to support delivery of their strategic objectives.

• Lead projects and take responsibility for all aspects of project and team management, including quality, timelines and risk.

• Participate in the delivery and presentation of client deliverables.

• Work collaboratively with senior client staff and management, often working in joint teams in the development of and delivery of recommendations.

• Lead on business development opportunities, demonstrate ability to build on-going client relationships and an external network of contacts. This includes actively building the team’s market-facing profile through representation events, social media and Government.

• Lead thought leadership and knowledge management to support practice development.

• Lead the coaching and development of junior team members, the development of team capabilities and skills and ongoing team practice development activities.

The Person

To succeed in this role you will need to demonstrate the following skills and experience:

• Experience in leading the delivery of strategy projects, most likely as a consultant. Knowledge and experience in deploying client growth projects (growth strategy, market entry, market assessments, corporate development, business case formulation and challenge, commercial due diligence) will be most relevant, but broader strategic experience (in areas such as operating model, cost optimisation or analytics) may also be helpful.

• Several years of industry experience of working in or with clients in the mobility ecosystem. This could include working with automakers (OEMs), organisations in the auto retail and manufacturing supply chain, mobility service providers, charge point operators, distribution or transmission network operators, energy retailers, fleet managers, or financial services organisations with interests in the motor sector, or private equity / infrastructure investors with a mobility focus.

• Intellectual curiosity and an ability to work independently; be comfortable developing answers and solutions often when the client requirement remains unclear, or changes.

• Outcomes driven, focused on helping the client to understand issues and resolve key questions, ability to drive through to an outcome and to gain stakeholder support in circumstances of complexity and ambiguity.

• Strong numerical and analytical skills combined with sound commercial acumen (demonstrated and applied in previous experience). Experience in using and reviewing Powerpoint and Excel documents is essential.

• Modelling and Data & Analytics skills/experience is not necessary, but experience in these areas will be considered beneficial.

• Experience in managing and leading teams and providing on and off project coaching to team members.

• Knowledge of and experience in business development process, including proposal development, responding to tenders and pitching.

• Personal drive to deliver results within tight deadlines.

• A positive and collaborative attitude.

• Ability to assess technical information, distil the key strategic insights and convey these clearly and confidently both orally and in written form to senior clients.
