We currently have a unique opportunity for someone to secure a role as a Business Advisor with a global leading defence engineering organisation. You will have the chance to highlight areas of opportunity/weakness within the Defence Industrial Landscape, which need to be explored/assessed/positioned as well as helping to stimulate thought leadership, and operate with the capacity to both exert influence and shape act/decision making across the business.
As the Business Advisor, you will lead (and where necessary undertake) the research and analysis required to understand, synthesise and interpret thinking within the political, industrial and supply chain environment in which the business is operating. For defined topic areas, you will be responsible for shaping actions and recommendations, and delivering agreed changes relating to our future position within this landscape.
Business Advisor skills and experience required:
  • Capacity to interact at senior level, across different directorates and to be recognised as a legitimate Change Agent in the UK.
  • Strategic thinker/shaper, capable of translating the complex into digestible chunks
  • Very strong transversal understanding of the Defence sector
  • Strong capacity of synthesis and persuasion, able to develop effective working relationships and influence
  • Positive attitude with no preconceptions on conclusions from analysis
  • Ability to draw conclusions and implications from complex data collection and analysis, both external and internal, e.g. market and industry dynamics, competitive position, profitability.
  • Financial familiarity and sensitivity to financial issues
  • Very good communication skills, both oral and written, capable of writing to White Paper level
  • Open mind and willingness to learn/look at things from a different perspective
This is an excellent opportunity for you to secure a rewarding and challenging Business Advisor role with a company that offers excellent career and development opportunities, a fantastic working environment and a highly competitive benefits package.
