Philips Strategy - Manager HealthTech in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Your challenge

Are you a highly talented strategist, currently working for a top-tier strategy consulting firm, who can support the Philips Executive Committee to make decisions? This is a unique opportunity to influence strategy and growth in a leading Health Technology company.

As a Manager in the Strategy team you will directly support and influence key decisions made at the highest level of the Philips organization.

Your responsibilities

As a Manager in the Strategy team, you will:

  • Own and drive project modules, under the guidance of your project manager;

  • Conduct high quality, meaningful, evidence-based business analyses;

  • Build and communicate actionable strategy recommendations;

  • Contribute to running and improving the Strategy team.

Responsibilities range from global projects at group level to high-impact projects within specific markets. Typical projects could be as broad as the evaluation of Philips’ global footprint in terms of value creation opportunities, the creation of a market entry strategy for kitchen appliances in the US, the identification and mapping of growth opportunities in the global Clinical Information market or a deep dive into the requirements to thrive in the Chinese market for Philips’ businesses.

Your team

Structured around 4 global hubs located in Amsterdam, Andover, Singapore and Shanghai, the Strategy team consists of top-level strategists with wide-ranging backgrounds, nationalities, and competencies. The team works with Philips businesses, market organizations and functional teams, supplying them with deep business insights, actionable strategic direction and thought leadership.

Our offer

We welcome you to a challenging, innovative environment with great opportunities for you to explore.

Our benefits are very competitive and designed around your preferences:

  • Depending on experience, a year salary (fulltime) between € 51.200,-and € 65.900,- (including personal benefits package of 24,57%);

  • 25 Days of leave and the possibility to purchase up to 20 extra days off annually;

  • Solid company pension scheme and attractive collective health insurance package;

  • Opportunity to buy Philips shares and products with discount;

  • Healthy work-life balance.

Within Philips, the Strategy team is a proven landing spot for strategy consultants, and a stepping stone for future leaders. There is the opportunity to develop further within the strategy career track, but many predecessors have successfully moved into other areas of business – from general management to marketing, from Healthcare IT to Mother & Child Care. Projects form the ideal opportunity for members of the Strategy team to get to know the business better and vice versa.

The position is based in Amsterdam - A city consistently ranked in the top 15 in the world for Quality of Living, Startups and Innovation, Economic Prosperity, and Top City to Work In. Learn more about living and working in the Netherlands: http://www.relocationguide.philips.nl/
