Anaplan Associate Consultant
About this role
An Anaplan Associate Consultant position is an entry point for a consulting career at Vuealta. After an initial training and ramping period (2 – 3 months) you will be assigned to work on customer projects where you will be working with the Vuealta team to develop Enterprise Planning models on the Anaplan platform for customers in the UK and in some cases, internationally to support our wider global teams.
Associate consultants will support the development of Anaplan models, working on assigned activities under guidance from more senior members of the team. As you develop your knowledge and experience you will start to work more independently and take greater ownership of tasks.
