Do you know that only 1/3 of transformations are successful and sustainable? At Orphoz, we aspire to help our clients to achieve one of their biggest challenges: make their transformation plans really happen. Our day-to-day work is to support large companies and public entities who need to adapt their operating models to the accelerated changes of their environment, by combining agility, sustainable efficiency and employee engagement. All in all, we exist to deliver lasting impact to our clients.

You will enter from day 1 on an accelerated development path thanks to real support and coaching from directors, who care about frequent interactions and true proximity. Moreover, coaching, mentorship and regular feedback are key in our culture and motivate a personalized support in the development of our teams.
You will have an active role in the firm's growth. Orphoz combines the advantages of a start-up - light hierarchy, autonomy, freedom of expression and initiative – and those of a large group – available resources to develop one’s projects, logistical support. Everyone is encouraged to bring their stone to a building that is still under construction and where everyone can find their place.

What You'll Do

You will lead on transformation projects by engaging at a deep level across our clients’ businesses, working in teams to build the capabilities, systems and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results and then ensure those results will be sustained.
You will lead, coach and motivate your team of consultants and client employees in each project, you will share responsibility for growing and developing our clients and our business and will contribute to implement Orphoz’s growth strategy and you will take responsibility on the development of the firm.
