Corporate Strategy & Business Development Directors / Senior managers
The VELUX Group has just started on a journey with a new CEO and a new corporate strategy with a strong focus on growth. To support the Executive Management Team achieve these plans and ambitions, we have decided to build a new Corporate Strategy & Business Development team combining Corporate Strategy, Strategic Project Management and our Market Insights and Analysis functions.
As one of our new Corporate Strategy & Business Development Directors / Senior Managers you will have a unique opportunity to work on the VELUX Group’s global strategy agenda, make a visible difference on company results and gain valuable hands-on experience to prepare you for the next step in your career.
We are looking for 2-4 people with a minimum of 5 – 8 years of top-tier consulting experience working with corporate strategy, business analysis, M&A (focus on due diligence and post-merger integration, i.e. not transactional M&A) and implementation of strategic change programmes, who are ready to take the next step and join a leading global company.
If you are inspired by the above and the opportunity to work for a company with a long history of solid results and a unique and valued family culture – then this job may be perfect for you.
Based in our Head Office in Hørsholm (just north of Copenhagen) and working for the SVP Strategy and Business Development, you will support the Executive Management Team in analysing various strategic issues and develop the strategies to solve them. You will work on critical strategic projects across our markets, e.g. growth strategies, evaluation of business development opportunities and management of corporate strategy projects. You will participate in Business Review meetings and other relevant strategic fora to support and challenge management in driving strategic change.
You will lead and drive the projects and make sure that we deliver our projects on time, with high quality deliverables and while securing commitment from all our stakeholders across the VELUX Group.
You will have the opportunity to:
- Work as part of a small, fast-moving highly competent team responsible for driving strategic projects for the VELUX Management Group to help execute our new corporate strategy – “Let’s Grow!”
- Provide strategic analysis and utilise your strong consulting toolbox, while being given the challenge to analyse a business area or opportunity and provide a plan which will drive better business results.
- Present to Executive Management complex business issues in a clear and concise manner which inspires trust and ensures that recommendations are pragmatic and implementable.
- Contribute to our strategic growth agenda and expansion of the VELUX Group business both in our core, but also in new business areas we have outlined as key opportunities.
- Help assess and integrate potential acquisitions, by participating in commercial due diligence, operational due diligence and post-acquisition integration.
- As part of a global organisation, you can expect to travel approx. 60 days annually – both in Denmark and internationally (mostly Europe).
You have a minimum of 5 – 8 years of experience in strategy consulting with a focus on strategy development and business analysis from a top-tier company or come from a similar position in another large, international firm. You graduated at the top of your class and have high standards for yourself and those who are part of your team.
You are bright, analytical, structured and you have a hands-on / can-do approach to business. Your level of drive lies far above average, and you constantly and constructively challenge the status quo. You are not afraid to take on new tasks and you are comfortable dealing with complex tasks with high levels of uncertainty and ambiguity. You can switch tasks with short notice and can keep a cool head in the process.
As a person, you are a team player, excellent communicator and collaborate easily with people from different cultural backgrounds – both internally and externally. It is important that you can navigate within a global matrix organisation with many different stakeholders and that you can achieve results in this type of environment.
You have an excellent command of PowerPoint and Excel, as well as a strong communication toolbox. Last, but not least, you communicate fluently in English, both spoken and in writing.
