  • Do you like working with the world’s leading multinational corporations that are confronted by dynamic and challenging supply chains in both nascent and emerging economies?
  • Do you enjoy travelling internationally and getting to know a diverse set of locations globally? We work in countries as different as Guyana, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Sierra Leone, Kenya and Vietnam.
