About the role

Strategy & Business Transformation (SBT) works closely with senior leadership across the organization to develop and deliver impactful solutions to some of the company’s most pressing strategic challenges. We provide thought leadership by leveraging a first-principles approach to solving problems and driving results. In addition to shaping business strategies, SBT often oversees its efforts through to implementation, ensuring the desired transformation is achieved and sustained. As an internal consulting group, we have joint accountability with our business leaders – we win when our client (Schindler) wins.

SBT was looking for highly motivated candidates who want to rapidly advance their careers and professional skills while learning to improve and grow a business. SBT managers work side-by-side with managers across all levels of the organization and frequently engage with some of the company’s most senior leaders.

As a Manager, you will have exceptional opportunities to take on challenges that will test your abilities to think strategically, innovate and execute. The skills that you will build as a member of the SBT team will prepare you to succeed in any business endeavour you may pursue.
