CBRE believes a core strategy to accelerate the growth of its thriving Industrial & Logistics (I&L) business is to offer its clients in this sector sophisticated supply chain consulting services. Towards that end, we are looking for a Supply Chain Analytics Consultant to support our team and help execute client engagements that result in both growing team revenues as well as substantial growth in the I&L business.
Who Are You?
You are an expert at getting the most out of Microsoft Excel, Access, Tableau, and similar data tools and are proud of this fact. You enjoy working with large data sets and creating order out of seeming chaos. You are in the relatively early stages of your business career, but you know what you want. You want to work for a large, global company that is going places. But you are also excited by the prospect of working for a young, growing, entrepreneurial team within that company where your individual contributions can make a difference. You understand the business implications of Big Data and understand the concept of taking data and turning it into information, knowledge, and insights.
A Day (or Week) in The Life
You report to a Manager on the SCA team who will serve as your guide and coach in terms of career and professional development. This Manager, in collaboration with you and other team members, will direct your day-to-day activities.
You work on many different work efforts simultaneously, so having a clear understanding of priorities and deadlines is important.
Work with the client to understand definitions of various data fields, units of measure, data period time frame, geographies, business units, product groups, and more. You develop a list of follow-up questions for the client that will bring additional clarity to the data.
You clean, organize, and analyze client data, using tools and techniques you have acquired over the years. You identify and segregate bad data; you manipulate the data so that it can be imported into other applications; you document your work and assumptions for future consideration.
You receive exposure and experience from your more senior teammates on the use of sophisticated network and transportation modeling tools. These tools execute on your input data sets and form the basis for the team's supply chain analyses.
With the assistance of your teammates, you determine the optimal manner and tools in which to present your analytical results. You contribute to project deliverables through the summarization of your work efforts into project outputs.
You support the SCA leadership team in the development and refinement of team infrastructure as we look to continuously improve the practice. Elements of this infrastructure include:
