Strategy and Operations - Senior Consultant

AND Digital is a fast growing, technology consultancy.

We work on large-scale, multi-industry, eCommerce and enterprise-level software development projects by placing best practice agility at the heart of what we do and how we work.

Our purpose is to help leading organisations accelerate their digital capabilities faster and more comprehensively than they think possible by building products that are compelling, commercially viable and customer facing across multiple web, mobile, app, social and in-store channels.

This is an opportunity for a Strategy and Operations - Senior Consultant who will join our AND Next Team.

AND Next is tasked with maintaining our high growth trajectory in the coming years by identifying potential locations for new Clubs (“offices”), establishing the business and investment cases, securing funding and then successfully launching them.

We care deeply about our people and have a focus on well-being and professional development. Read on to see how your skills and expertise could be part of our journey!


How we work:

Our Club strategy is the key differentiator that drives our growth because we fundamentally believe that it helps us attract and retain the very best tech talent.

Our people love the close-knit feel of the Club environment as it gives each person a direct relationship and influence over the decisions that impact them, as well as giving them opportunities to work on multiple client products.

Our clients love the closeness of the partnerships they form with a Club, as well as the speed, responsiveness and simplicity of the service they receive.

A Club is a unit with around 80 ANDis who together serve between 8-12 clients at any one time. A Club has its own physical space, its own management team and autonomy to make its own operational decisions when it comes to its people and clients. Clubs are supported by company-wide teams, focused on bringing in new talent, looking after the broader experience and happiness of our people, and a dedicated Academy to support their continuous learning.


Your role:

Your role will be to build and refine our commercial and investment approach to establish new clubs that we want to launch across the UK, Europe and beyond. You will have strong financial modelling expertise and commercial awareness to put the necessary investment cases together, as well as complex multi-year club cashflow and P&L models. Your strong quantitative skills will be critical as we structure and negotiate partnership proposals, on the basis of which long term, multi-year strategic relationships will be built.

The role will also require you deal with a range of supplier and commercial negotiations as well as many of the operational launch issues that will arise. This is a hands-on role that will require you to lead key work streams as we work towards launch; it is not just about abstract financial modelling.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Building, developing and maintaining commercial/finance models for assessment of new potential Club openings, including cash flow analysis and financing considerations, and sensitivity analysis.
  • Performance analysis for assessment of previous Club launches to refine and improve our ability to successfully scale our Clubs model and identify changes we need to make to our launch approach
  • Production of detailed, deal-specific financial analysis to support commercial negotiation with clients and partners for new Club launches
  • Supporting AND colleagues (People, Marketing, Technology, Finance, and others) to understand the commercial/finance implications of new launches and P&L considerations, including opportunities and commercial risks
  • Communicate our investment plans and commercial terms with target client organisations
  • Support negotiations with clients, partners and suppliers throughout the entire lifecycle of the launch of our new Clubs
  • Actively leading key work streams, once the investment case has been accepted and we move into launch mode


About you:

  • Excellent financial modelling/commercial analysis track record, with experience of designing, building and running commercial analysis models
  • Strong commercial acumen and understanding of professional services business models.
  • Advanced Word/PowerPoint/Excel/Google Productivity suite skills
  • Confident and clear communicator with strong presentation skills, and the ability to communicate with different audiences and levels, both with clients and within AND Digital
  • Good knowledge of digital and how and why it is different to traditional ways of working, backed up with your own insights and points of view
  • Ideally, someone with a Professional Services/Consulting/Finance/Business Development background
  • Ability to travel across the UK and Europe and work away from home
