Vacature senior consultant
As a Senior Consultant, you are the face of Vasco for the customer and are responsible for your project team’s successful collaboration with the customer. Your several years’ experience mean you are familiar with such project systems as IPMA-D, Prince and/or Agile. It is important that you know how to apply these project systems within different types of organisations and/or projects. You can summarise issues for people quickly, you know how the various lines run within organisations and you know enough about managing a range of different stakeholders. You are characterised by your proactive attitude. You always know how to make improvements and you are quick to see where action needs to be taken. And perhaps the most important thing of all: you don’t just identify what needs to be done - you also know how to take corrective action, which you prefer to do yourself (in conjunction with your team).
