Job Description

Calling all those who crave an audience and love a virtual podium… 

Ambition 2025 is looking for two people to join us in bringing about new ways of working and the transformation of Avanade through collaboration. 
We need those who have the ability to be creative and in control while managing large groups of velociraptors . You will be passionate about the importance of not just getting bigger, but better. Ambition 2025 is about unleashing our people and organization to do amazing things for both our clients and ourselves.
Over the last year, we built a dynamic, inclusive strategy to not only home in on the strengths that propelled us these past 20-years, but also evolve. With the vision now locked-in, the hard work is underway to create even more value for our employees and clients.
To do this right, we are adding to our small but mighty team to help orchestrate the journey forward as we evolve towards 2025 and beyond, all the while continuing to deliver on today. 
So, if you are up to the challenge and love facilitation and event organization in all forms, then we have a great opportunity for you to have a real impact on the multi-billion global company that is Avanade … and if that wasn’t enough of a teaser to apply, know that you will learn and laugh a lot along the way.

About the role
We have openings for a Consultant/Senior Consultant and a Manager/Group Manager to join the Transformation Office and lead the collaboration side of the Transformation.  Our team’s remit is to be the stewards of the transformation process. We are accountable for bringing the Ambition 2025 vision to life. These roles are planned as developmental rotations where you will not only build your overall skills and profile with impressive accomplishments and experiences, but also an impressive network with leaders across the company. . 

The Transformation Office is scrappy like a startup – so if you need a precise job description, then this is probably not the role for you. It will be dynamic but rewarding, there will be testing of both capability and capacity along the way. 

Things we are looking for in candidates
Design Thinking Expertise
Strong Facilitation Chops
Experience with program or project management
Highly organized to expertly manage multiple streams
Innovative mindset  
Ability to work comfortably with people at all levels of the company
Confidence to bring your voice and opinions to the table, especially when it differs from others – diversity of thought makes us stronger
Quick with Excel, PowerPoint, and jokes when needed – laughter is the fuel that carries this team forward 😊
Eagerness to learn and the bravery to work through stages of ambiguity
Ability to work independently
Resilience and strength to adapt quickly 
Ability to be flexible on work hours to accommodate global stakeholder time zone friendly meetings
