You've got big plans. We have opportunities to match, and we're committed to empowering you to become a better you, no matter what you do.

When you join KPMG you'll be one of over 219,000 professionals providing audit, tax, advisory and business enablement services across 147 countries.

With the support to do things differently, grow personally and professionally and bring your whole self to work, there's no limit to the impact you can make. Let's do this.

The KPMG Supply Chain practice provides management advisory services in Supply Chain Planning, Procurement and Physical supply chain (Distribution & Logistics). Our professionals contribute to the reputation of our practice, to its development, and have success on the market by helping clients unlock new potential in their organization. We support our clients to enhance their organization's performance, grow sustainable value, control their operating costs and increase service levels through practical solutions.

What you will do

We are looking for a highly versatile Supply Chain Management professional with demonstrated expertise in Supply Chain Planning to join our Montreal Management Consulting practice.

Depending on the circumstances for which our services are called upon, professionals in this role are typically responsible for the following:

  • Contribute to key steps of a supply chain transformation project, including business case development, business requirements gathering, system selection and the implementation itself;
  • Collaborate with leading supply chain planning solution(s) professionals (e.g. JDA, Oracle, o9 Solutions, Logility, SAP IBP, Kinaxis or others);
