WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
As an integral part of Bain’s Performance Improvement (PI) Practice, the Cost Transformations team addresses the need to link strategy with cost management across various client situations, from high urgency to building a vision with executive alignment. The team serves corporate and private equity clients across all industries globally.
The Cost Transformations team works with Bain’s clients to conduct diagnostics on their spend base, establish an aligned-upon ambition, develop strategies to reach full-potential savings and institute programmatic transformation programs. We help our clients evolve their cost management strategy to fuel and fund their overarching strategy.
Bain is investing to accelerate the growth of the Cost Transformations team over the coming years. This role is part of an ambitious growth plan that will significantly expand our Cost Transformations-affiliated consulting resources.
WHERE YOU’LL FIT WITHIN THE TEAM
Bain & Company is looking to recruit a Consultant based in North America and/or Europe with Cost experience for our “Value Calculator” team, which focuses on Cost Diagnostics. The position will focus on helping our clients identify cost savings opportunities in all parts of their P&L. The position will include supporting clients in assessing the client’s cost base, identifying areas of value using benchmarks and Bain experience, and developing instances of the Value Calculator, our diagnostic software to visualize the opportunity for client executives.
This individual will likely come from a consulting or finance organization with a deep focus on financial data analysis and/or cost strategy, and will have a track record of successfully diagnosing issues, creating hypotheses and executing analyses that have moved the client to action.
The Cost Transformations Practice and Value Calculator team are fully integrated within the structure, culture and product offering of Bain and is not a separate product/service organization.
The general scope of the role will include approximately 80% of time focused on client diagnostics, performed remotely, with the remaining 20% focused on Cost Transformations capability building and tool development. The position will have a global focus. While not expected to be heavy, this role may include some travel to support our clients.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
This is a role with a broad set of responsibilities. You will contribute to the (a) deployment, (b) development, and (c) commercialization of Bain’s Value Calculator approach. As such, you will have an opportunity to work with the entire span of Bain’s resources – from offshore analytics experts (deployment) to software developers and graphic design experts (development) to Senior Partners (commercialization). You will work closely with client facing teams and may also can work directly with client resources in collecting data and refining our analysis when required.
The successful Specialist Consultant candidate will have a track record of successful financial data analysis leading to strategic insights. Software development or experience executing cost transformations in a consulting-environment is a nice-to-have. Experience working with global clients or organizations is a plus.
