Vancouver, BC
Full Time
3 days ago

At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

The opportunity:

Data is the new gold. However, data only has value through strong and reliable data analysis, clear interpretation and good data management. We help our clients in those areas to realize growth, improve performance and to manage risks.

As a Senior Consultant in Data Management, you will be a part of our Technology Consulting (Information Management and Data & Analytics) practice within KPMG. This is a worldwide network of professionals who collaborate on a daily basis to create value from data. Enterprise Data Management integrates and is the connecting link with other data focused advisory services including Business Intelligence, Advanced Analytics, Digital Transformation, Enterprise Solutions and Data Security. We collaborate across service offerings on data driven solutions. And that is why Forrester Research has recently recognized KPMG as one of the most prominent advisory firms in Data & Analytics!

What you will do

Data Management is an indispensable basis for data analysis and data strategy. Together with your colleagues, you will build strong foundations for our (international) clients. We help our clients in understanding and better governing their data and enable them to analyze their data. You will contribute by:
  • Creating and presenting data strategies, roadmaps and data operating models
  • Assessing and improving our clients' data quality
  • Implementing data management capabilities with our clients, so that (cloud) ERP systems perform flawlessly
  • Managing and executing data migrations
  • Deploying modern data platforms in our client's business and technology ecosystems
  • Securing 'trusted' analytics, by creating transparent and well governed (advanced) analytics processes, data platforms and data lakes
  • Advising on digital solutions for Document and Content Management
  • Developing and utilizing technical and industry knowledge to resolve complex client challenges and consult on leading practice solutions
  • Planning and executing day-to-day activities of advisory engagements for a variety of clients including data strategy and roadmap development, business process analysis, current state assessment and future state process design, data and business case analysis and tailoring recommendations specific to client's use cases and needs
  • Building long-term business relationships with client teams and executives through engagement delivery and networking in professional organizations
  • Participate in business development by identifying new opportunities and assisting with proposal development
  • Championing your own growth trajectory and learning interests to deepen your understanding of relevant trends, technology stacks and innovation strategies

You will have the opportunity to be part of our growing Data Management practice, in Canada and globally. Based on our success, you will learn from our Advanced Data Management methodology, training and access to KPMG's Global Center of Excellence - you can be a part of it!
