We are looking for a Senior Service Innovation Consultant to join our team.

The digital services we co-create, develop and launch with our clients are often transformational. They are not obvious, and we need a senior service innovation consultant who can make sense where there is little framework or direction in place. It may mean resetting the direction and asking fundamental questions.

The services we design are sometimes purely digital and sometimes have a physical element, making this a unique opportunity to do both. We offer you the chance to work with our clients to create a new digital direction through new business models and technology solutions and help bring the service to fruition.

What you can bring

We are looking for creativity alongside strategic thinking and technical know-how. We start with the pre-specification phase, so we need to be able to communicate ideas well with senior people in our client base. You will need to be able to frame these ideas within the commercial strategies of our clients and help them adapt their approach and adopt new business models when appropriate. All of this is within exciting and fast-moving technologies where your ideas will push the limits of what has been done before.

As an experienced innovator, ideally you will be able to:

  • Work with clients to refine and detail ambitions and propositions, communicate how our team can help them and design a service to realise their ambition
  • Ideate opportunities to form new business models
  • Give support and leadership to the team to design a service that enables the business model
  • Support clients at all stages of service development – from opportunity assessment, proposition ideation, road-mapping, prototyping, go-to-market planning, operating model design, through to successful launch and scaling
  • Act as a vital bridge between client ambition, user insight and the art-of-the-possible

What we can offer

This is an opportunity to work with a range of clients – the big and the small. Some with existing products who are looking for new ways to deliver their offering, and some with a new product, a new idea or working service. They might have a limited understanding of the digital part and may need to solve a technological problem or be shown how to scale.

You must be inquisitive – to ask ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ To think about the emotion and the drivers and understand why one approach will probably work better than another. We are always working towards satisfying the ambition of our clients and finding ways for them to achieve new business outcomes. We have deep technology expertise, but we are focused on business outcomes, technology with a strategic need. We are looking for a business brain too; to explore the commercial motivations together with the technology aspects of a solution.

At Cambridge Consultants you will have a like-minded technology, engineering and science organisation behind you. People brimming with ideas and a hunger to solve problems. You need to know digital technologies, to know your clouds … and when to use the edge. You will understand the trends – for example digital twins or Artificial Intelligence of Things, or the potential of 5G private networking – and you know what the market is like; these might be outdated by the time you are reading this. You have to keep moving with the technology trends.
