Strategy Manager at Simple Feast
Copenhagen, DK

Are you excited to revolutionise the food industry towards a more sustainable future? Great, because we’re building a completely new team at Simple Feast that will guide our strategy towards becoming the leader in plant-based food & sustainability. 

Off the back of our momentum in the Nordics we have received a fresh round of investment that will be used to launch our products in the US, alongside a number of new products. The Strategy Unit has been set up to bring a data-driven approach to identifying new opportunities, managing high-impact projects and develop our long-term strategy, both on a local and company level. 

The Strategy Manager will be a core member of a small team at the heart of the organisation and reports directly to the Head Strategy. The person will be based in Copenhagen but will work with a distributed team, coordinating with team-members & stakeholders in London, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Los Angeles. 

What you’ll do

The purpose of the role is to become a strategic thought-partner to team members in different parts of the organisation, so the day-to-day will vary a great deal depending on our focus as a company. 

The work will mainly be project-based and will consist of applying analytics and a strategic process to the initiatives we believe can really move the needle for the company. 

In general, the role is about becoming a business and industry expert and the go-to person for many strategic initiatives, which can include things like: 

  • Performance monitoring & insights – develop a deep understanding of metrics and review market data to understand opportunities & competitor landscape. 
  • Management support – address key strategic questions highlighted by management or the board, through analytical frameworks and insights.
  • Strategy and planning - developing business cases, structuring models and analyses to support go to market and business planning.
  • Special projects – contribute to or manage key internal projects, deemed to be high-impact and / or require a longer-term view, from beginning to end. 
  • Communication – create and deliver presentations to management or other functions to communicate insights & recommendations.
Who you are

We believe you are a person with a good mix of quantitative skills and experience managing projects. Overall the person who will do well in this role will be someone who: 

  • Is a firm believer in our cause, demonstrated by personal choices around sustainable food (even if early on in the journey towards plant-based eating). 
  • Is a strategic thinker who can easily work out how to structure problems and where to find the information needed to make decisions. 
  • Has 2-5 years of experience from a top-tier consulting firm, within a start-up, or at a consumer goods company, working in either the strategy or insights team. 
  • Can work their way around a PowerPoint presentation and a spreadsheet with ease. 
  • Has experience in managing projects and working across functions.

Interest and experience in market research a big plus but not required.   

If you think this sounds like a good match and you are interested in joining an international team that spans across Copenhagen, Berlin, and San Francisco, please apply.

Simple Feast encourages anyone interested regardless of age, gender, religion or ethnic affiliation to apply for the position.
