Our work

You'll be working in a team of enthusiastic and motivated consultants from various backgrounds. Everyone cares about sustainability. Together we help clients to become 'better businesses'. How?

  • We help clients formulate a (sustainable) strategy and turn it into tangible plans.
  • We help clients boost their daily operations. Always incorporating social and environmental impact. We look at performance management from a holistic perspective. Finding for positive impact for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
  • We guide our clients' people in the transformation to a better business.

What will you be working on?

You will help energy companies, but also production companies and other energy-intensive companies. Speeding up the energy transition, together.

  • You'll implement improvements to support key players in the energy transition. Think of grid operator Enexis who needs to adjust the grid for renewable energy sources. But who also faces labor shortages. You'll help them focus and improve their performance.
  • You'll help scale up sustainable developments in the energy chain. Think of a provider of a sustainable energy product that cannot keep up with the high demand. You help them grow their operations.
  • You'll help clients to improve their daily operations, always incorporating social and environmental impact. Think of an infrastructure company that needs to maintain its buildings and infrastructure. You help them to include sustainability in their maintenance plans. This way, the company has a positive impact on the environment, employees, and the local community.
  • You'll help start new developments in the energy transition. Think about bringing round the table different players from across the energy chain. To find solutions to common problems and start a coalition for change. Or think about starting a worldwide network of hydrogen experts.

Your role and responsibilities

  • You work on performance improvement projects for clients, always taking into account environmental and social performances.
  • You head your own (part of a) project or work stream. This way, you're responsible for its results and you'll develop yourself fast.
  • Together with the project manager you shape the contents of the project and make a project planning. You'll facilitate workshops and trainings. You make sure the necessary quality and results are met. You'll also guide less experienced consultants in their development.

  • You build and maintain your own relevant network and help with preparing sales conversations and quotes.

Can you introduce yourself, please? 
I live in Breukelen, a town close to Amsterdam. I love to cook for friends and family. I love to ski, tennis, sail, and do yoga. Whenever I'm on the water or up a mountain, I'm totally in my element. 

What kind of team member are you? 
I want to achieve concrete goals, together as a team. I love making plans too. In my work, I can be quite serious and go for gold. My team mates know me as someone who's involved and who takes initiative.

Why did you start working for us?

I chose Been because of its sustainable mission. In 2024, we want all our assignments to have a measurable positive impact on the UN's Sustainable Development. This resonates with me, because I think companies have an important role to fulfill in our sustainability challenges. Next to that, I love it to work on both strategy and execution. 

What's it like to work with you? 

First and foremost, I'm a real team player. Also, I like a good debate, because in sharing ideas and knowledge, we can learn from each other. I like to look at problems from multiple angles and positions.

Please, tell us about your transfer from Unilever to us? 

As a consultant, you can help multiple companies and you’re in a position to influence decision makers. Much more than at when you're working for a multinational. I like the intellectual challenge too. You’re always working on a complex issues and there’s the opportunity to bring forward you ideas. I’m using my brain much more.

What's it like to work for a smaller organization? 

I now realize how much I’ve missed it. People are genuinely interested in each other, also on a personal level. I can really be myself here. People are interested in your opinions and everyone is supportive. We also do things outside work, like playing Padel.”

Any tips for others considering a similar step? 

Big companies offer so many opportunities and look great on your resume. But I’m glad I followed my heart. This suits me much more. So think for yourself. What is important to me? What do I want to learn? And dare to leave your comfort zone!

Career path

We value your personal development. That's why you'll follow development program to suit your consulting level, your personal development, and your own goals. A typical career path looks like this:

  • Consultant

  • Senior Consultant

  • Manager

  • Senior Manager

  • Director
