Senior Consultant Planning
Bluecrux is a team of 100+ business consultants with a passion for supply chain & operations. We believe in personal commitment, customer focus and simply “going for it”. And we’re growing fast, so we want to keep the wheel turning.
We deliver solutions that ‘stick’ in the fields of:
- supply chain planning
- manufacturing & distribution optimization
- workforce planning
- customer management
- business transformation
Our planning squad makes the different aspects of planning tick and click. By enhancing the organizational, process and system setup of our clients, we make their supply chain planning a true asset. Furthermore, the squad is constantly on the lookout for improvements to increase the satisfaction of our multinational clients.
We are a Belgian based organization but are looking for new colleagues to start our team up in the United States of America. Our office is based in New Jersey but are looking mostly for people that are open to travel within (and occasionally outside) the US to deliver projects at our clients.
