About Avanade’s Advisory Practice

Want to build customer value with digital and turn your ideas into human impact? So do we.

There’s one in every group—the person who dreams big and has the motivation to bring their ideas to life, even as others might roll their eyes and prefer to play it safe. Are you that person? One who isn’t afraid to break the mold and who gets passionate about the power of digital to transform organizations and ways of working? Because we are building teams of people like that to help our clients unlock the power they need now and own what’s next.

At Avanade, we are breaking apart the traditional process of setting strategies and goals first, then finding technologies to achieve them. In the digital age, there’s no time for that linear process. We partner with clients to accelerate value from digital innovation by being ambitious, imaginative – and fast. We believe big and deliver personally. We relentlessly challenge, encourage, and support our client partners and each other.

Want the agility and energy of a start-up, backed by the resources of Accenture, Microsoft and the Center for Information Systems Research at MIT Sloan School of Management? Here you will find a team of people who thrive on turning ideas and innovations into breakthrough results for leading organizations around the globe. Ultimately, we’re not just making business better. We’re making life better for our clients and their customers.


If we could upgrade humans as we do IT systems, everyone would work flawlessly. But we can’t, so we need you.

Explore the opportunity below and see how YOU fit with Avanade.


Avanade and you

As a business consultant, you know your clients’ needs inside and out. You have a unique ability to come at their problems from every angle, and you work with them side-by-side from the earliest groundwork to the final experience.


Together we go beyond.

We have bold ambitions and are always ready to add people to our diverse team to stretch the boundaries of innovation and success. 


The work

You’ll work closely with our clients and Avanade colleagues to help manage Business Applications, including ERP/CRM, from start to finish and encompassing all aspects of the change journey. You’ll create critical deliverables, work closely with clients, and apply change models to support clients as they drive towards their goals.

In addition, to change enablement, the team also leads clients by developing operating models, organizational design, and more.

How do we get all this done? Transformation. Agility. Collaboration.


The opportunity

Avanade excels at digital innovation. We help organizations transform a little or a lot using the Microsoft platform. As good as we are, we know that people are the key to sustainable change. You’ll help us unlock that potential with comprehensive and effective change programs.

In addition to your day-to-day, there are opportunities to get involved with employee network groups. Your experiences and zest for making a difference have a place here. We don’t just say it; we do it.


The team

You’re one of those who walk into a situation and quickly figure out what needs to be done and the best way to do it. Imagine being in a group with other people who share that same vision and drive. Look out, world! Our Advisory community embraces ambition, innovation, and curiosity to keep discovering the next new thing.

Interested in a stretch role but worried you might be in over your head? You will be surrounded by OCM peers, mentors, and leaders that will support you on your path to success. All for one and one for all!


The community  

In the Advisory community, you’ll be surrounded by people who share your enthusiasm and skills. And you’ll be in a place that values different ideas, perspectives, and experiences. We ask everyone to bring their whole, unique selves to Avanade, along with an openness to grow and change in their understanding of the world. 


Your experience

It likely includes 2-4 years of change management experience around Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM), including driving engagement, working in multifunctional teams, and measuring adoption.


We would also like to talk to you if you have a change experience with other tools or technologies. You bring a unique perspective that helps keep the team rounded and offers a more comprehensive experience for our clients.


Your skills

You have written and spoken communication skills, critical thinking, Microsoft Office, and Organizational Change Management (OCM) methodology.


What we offer you


Distinctive experiences

Leading organizations—corporations, non-profits, government agencies—look to Avanade to help them make the most of their investment in Microsoft and push the boundaries of digital innovation. The result? Exciting work that is well supported, constantly evolving, and sure to keep you engaged and interested.


Limitless learning

We give lifelong learners a rich menu to choose from, drawing from our relationship with Microsoft and other partners. We’ll back you up as you pursue big ideas and give you honest feedback to advance your growth and our clients’.


Ambitious growth

We think big and achieve, knowing we have a global team of people who are just as passionate about innovating as we are and eager to grow with us. Growth at Avanade doesn’t have to look like a traditional ascent up the career ladder (although that is an option). We welcome people to go deep into their specialties, embrace agility, and go after new skills in different business areas.


What we offer you


Come for the distinctive experiences you have helping forward-thinking corporations, non-profits, and governments push the boundaries of digital innovation. Stay for the limitless learning opportunities that encourage you to master Microsoft and pursue big ideas.
