Retail consultant

You have a marketing and/or business consulting background, have an interest or proven skills in retail and believe good stakeholder management is key for success.

Who you are

True North helps retailers to understand and act on ever-changing shopper behaviour. We help them better understand their clients and non clients and deliver valuable insights. Building upon these insights, we guide our clients via our stakeholder-focused 5/15/150 process methodology to translate findings into actions. We make a difference for multiple brands like Veritas, Lunch Garden, e5 mode, JBC, Fun, Game Mania, Bristol amongst others.

Our findings are translated to different levels, outlined in our Identity/Offering-model: building thought leadership, improving the customer experience, supporting customer connection (Identity) or even developing the assortment mix, pricing strategy or challenging the channel approach (Offering).

Your responsibilities are to guide the retail clients you work for via our 5/15/150-methodology, support them in their understanding needs and guide them - hands-on - via their or our partners to act upon those insights. Retail experience is definitely a plus. This is an opportunity to work in the fast-paced retail business and weighing in on retailer brands' future strategy.

Based in the wider Ghent area (Merelbeke), we are looking for motivated candidates with passion for retail consulting.

A competitive salary, the possibility to further learn and develop your skills and all the perks you need, will be waiting for you. Including coffee and a kicker table Playstation ;-).
