Do you love Intranets, digital employee engagement and internal comms?

Do you want to help us take our award-winning consultancy into Japan (to join our new team there)?

Then this is the job for you!

We're looking for experienced consultants to join our team to lead the delivery of major employee engagement initiatives at some of the biggest organisations in Japan (and potentially on projects in Australia, NZ and other locations in Asia).

Our approach spans human-centred design-led discovery, content and change strategy, build, launch and adoption. We work side-by-side with leaders from Microsoft and our customers to implement change using the latest Microsoft tech - including Viva Connections, modern SharePoint and Teams.

Why us?
