(Sr.) Manager Retail


IG&H is growing! We are looking for a (Senior) Manager to join our Retail Strategy team.

With over 300 talented colleagues who genuinely embrace change and challenges, we’ve created a unique “high-daring”, “high-caring” culture, attracting extraordinary people and inspiring them to push the boundaries for themselves and our customers. We believe the optimal workforce is an equal one and set clear targets to accelerate gender equality.

Are you an experienced manager in the consulting sector, looking to break the mold and explore new opportunities? Do you miss a sense of entrepreneurship in your current role? Does a strong international growth path and being part of exciting innovations call out to you? Then we have the perfect vacancy for you at our Great Place to Work! Opportunities exist in both Utrecht and Munich, depending on your preference, or where you live. 

What are you going to do?

As (senior) manager retail, you will guide our retail and FMCG customers in becoming digital frontrunners, becoming more customer-oriented by developing digital strategies and customer-centered propositions. Whether it’s about designing a new omnichannel proposition or developing an innovative and optimized delivery concept, you ensure that our customers transform and remain relevant.

To achieve this, you make optimal use of our multi-disciplinary teams who specialize in technology, data & analytics, organizational-, and digital transformations. You are familiar with the strategic aspect of transforming businesses and can make others think outside of the box.

IG&H keeps you on your toes in a supportive environment: the range of customers and issues you encounter mean you’ll continuously be acquiring new skills. As a (senior) manager you’ll lead customer projects,  you’ll have direct contact with our senior customers (mostly C-suite) and work with a high degree of independence and freedom. You are responsible for managing customer interactions and you play a pivotal role in building and maintaining customer relationships.

So what does that mean for you?

You’ll be joining a great place to work with happy employees and customers (NPS > 60). Furthermore, we’re hitting double-digit growth and have our sights firmly set on continued (international) expansion. We’re still just embarking on this exciting adventure! Why not be part of it?
