JOB DESCRIPTION - Supply Chain Advisory (SCA) Facility Design Lead
CBRE believes a core strategy to accelerate the growth of its thriving Industrial & Logistics (I&L) business is to offer its clients in this sector sophisticated supply chain consulting services. Towards that end, we are looking for an experienced resource with an emphasis in Facility Design to be a leader on this team to drive client engagements that result in both growing team revenues as well as substantial growth in the I&L business.
Who Are You?
You are supply chain-savvy and stay up to date on logistics trends. While you are fluent in areas such as network design, warehouse management, inventory management and labor management, your passion and expertise are in the design and layout of warehouses, distribution and fulfillment centers.
You have several years of experience in industrial engineering, lean six sigma design and operations management. You understand and can effectively communicate the drivers of different design features and options, including the applicability and use of various types of material handling equipment and automation. While most of your career has been hands-on design, you have also led or supported sales of facility design projects.
You may have obtained this experience at a material handling equipment company, a boutique supply chain consulting firm, a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, or a supply chain consulting practice at a major management consulting firm.
You thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative, sometimes ambiguous work environment. You are both "big picture" strategic and detail-oriented. You equally enjoy interacting with clients, teammates, and other members of the CBRE team. You can work independently, with minimal direction and are a self-directed and motivated individual. You can also lead a team and share your knowledge and experiences.
