Supply Chain Consultant

OPEN POSITION
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

Supply Chain Consultant

Want to learn something new every day?

Modular Management is a consulting firm that works with international companies to create and deploy market-driven product platforms. In this role you’ll influence top management at some of the greatest companies in the world, in industries as varied as home appliances, robotics, telecom and construction.

We’re now looking for an enthusiastic individual to strengthen our supply chain team.

You and your team may, for example, help drive the following initiatives:

  • Supply chain strategy analysis, considering market demands and global footprint
  • Make/buy decisions based on lead time and cost competitiveness
  • Strategy by material category
  • Processes and production concepts
  • Value stream map and production layouts on block level, with analysis of logistic flows
  • Product ramp-up and phase-out, based on manufacturing and sourcing
  • Investment needs and quantify economic improvement.

If you enjoy working with top colleagues in a global setting, we can offer great development opportunities. The position is based at our head office in central Stockholm, Sweden, and involves travelling on a regular basis. When not travelling you’ll have the flexibility to manage your own time.

Company Culture?

“We help each other to solve things together. Even the most experienced consultants do the same kind of tasks as new employees,” says Malin Ekerå. “I also appreciate the fact that in a small consulting firm you get insight into all aspects of the business and can work on many different projects. Staff turnover is low, the company prioritizes work-life balance and you get to learn something new every day.”

Skills and Experience?

We expect you to have a few years’ experience from manufacturing and assembly, although several backgrounds may be relevant. You may, for example, have a leading role in production development or work in a consulting firm that supports manufacturing companies. Experience of production engineering, purchasing and operations is also valuable, as is experience of lean thinking, design for manufacturing and assembly, and project management.

You should understand how to secure quality and reduce cost, and it’s an advantage if you’ve worked with the industrialization of new products, from prototype to serial delivery. To thrive, you want to see the big picture and find the best solution for clients.

You probably have a Master of Science in Engineering or have acquired the equivalent knowledge. You enjoy building relations with colleagues and clients, since we strongly believe that success comes from working in teams. Proficiency in English is required.

How to Apply?

Please e-mail your complete application with a (i) short cover letter and (ii) condensed CV, preferably not more than one page each, to malin.ekera@modularmanagement.com. Please apply as soon as possible, because we’ll be interviewing candidates continuously, and just contact me with any questions.
