What you’re looking for

Seven Beaufort, a fresh wind in your sails! 🌬
Seven Beaufort is an ambitious bunch of entrepreneurial and quirky minds who like to get shit done. We want to develop the most dynamic and entrepreneurial consulting team where people reach their full potential while having fun and putting a smile on the face of our clients when working together. We take true responsibility and accountability for our clients’ challenges related to growth, innovation, and digital, while always going the extra mile for a joyful and successful collaboration.

A typical day at Seven Beaufort ⛵️

You arrive (can be at your client’s office, our office, or your own office at home) and start the day with a coffee, tea, or whatever you prefer. You look at your agenda and see that a business design workshop you’ve been working on is due today. While putting the finishing touches to it, you spar with a colleague to bring the workshop to the next level. At the office, someone pops the question “Does anyone need to get something to eat?”. Some say yes, and others want to join to get some air. A lunch break later, the afternoon workshop facilitation with your client takes place where you inspire your client and have interesting discussions about challenges they experience. After a drink from our well-stocked fridge with your colleagues, you go home at a fair hour in your company car. And yes, you still have the time to meet up with your friends at the restaurant or to go do some sports or do whatever you like. The night is still young!

What kind of challenges you will be facing at 7B (a snapshot):

• You identify areas for growth and improvement, and then develop and implement strategies to achieve those goals.
• You help our clients to design and accelerate their products and services to market, from needs detection to validating market fit.
• You facilitate brainstorming sessions and make magic happen.
• You provide training and coaching to help clients build their innovation capabilities.
• You assist with the development of business plans and budgets to support innovation efforts.
• You mentor and coach our team of innovation consultants to uplevel our innovation capability.
• You actively look for innovation projects where we can add value for (new) clients.

This job can be everything you love and nothing you don’t if you can relate with the following:

• You love to get shit done and you aim for impact.
• You want to have fun while making an impact during your missions.
• You help others to shine.
• You want to build Seven Beaufort together with us.
• You only use buzzwords when it is really necessary (no blabla).
• You have the necessary tentacles for identifying clients’ (future) challenges.
• You have a business-related master’s degree in the pocket (Business Economics, Business Engineer,…) – no worries, you can also make up for it with relevant work experience.
• You have 6+ years of relevant working experience, of which 3+ years of consulting experience.
• You have an academic background in Business, Economics, Innovation, Engineering, Digital or equivalent.
• So far, you’re reading this vacancy, which means your English is fine but… we are a Belgium-based management consulting firm, and in this country, we officially have 3 languages (Dutch, French, German). How’s your Dutch, French and English?
• Sidenote: German-speaking is not a must. 😉

So, we're not looking for just any Innovation Lead. We want someone who is as quirky and entrepreneurial as we are. If you're the type of person who finds delight in delivering meaningful projects and can't resist a good challenge, we highly encourage you to apply.
