Job description

Requisition ID:  1411297

Are you ready to build a better working world by improving supply chain performance for our Life Sciences clients?


The opportunity


Aging populations and chronic disease are putting pressure on health resources around the world just as scientific progress, augmented intelligence and digital data are transforming the traditional health care models.

Staying competitive and providing the personalized experience that patients demand require life sciences organizations to find new ways of working and therefore change their supply chain model. Partnering with others to share data, medicine and resources while anticipating trends and regulatory changes will help ensure sustainability in the increasingly evidence-based, outcomes-focused sector.

EY helps companies across the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical technology fields harness this disruption by forming the right alliances, better allocating resources and building trust with customers.


For our growing Supply Chain and Operations practice in Belgium we are looking for a Senior Consultant to strengthen our Life Sciences team.
