About Veldhoen + Company

Veldhoen + Company is the leading global consulting firm specialising in Activity Based Working (ABW). Our leadership in this space is based on more than 27 years of experience partnering with organisations to define, implement and refine new work styles for their people. We support organisations to develop their unique workstyle and define what it would mean for them to implement from an integrated perspective through physical, behavioural, and virtual (technological) environments. We provide advice to a diverse range of clients across the financial, professional services, government, healthcare and education sectors.

This is a unique opportunity to join a passionate, engaged, non-hierarchal team that lives by our values of openness, unconventionality, and inspiration.

What you will get

We are a small and engaged team that have a strong passion for what we do, you will enjoy working in a group of highly motivated and genuinely engaged individuals. The role gives you the chance to extend your network in this space through speaking at knowledge sharing forums, industry events. It’s a chance to get your voice out there in the marketplace through publishing your ideas and thoughts in various media. We offer great flexibility and autonomy – that means we manage by outcomes not by face time, you have the freedom to explore your ideas in the context of our work. Our environment is a great learning environment for someone who has curiosity to ask questions and challenges the status quo.

About this role

The role provides a chance to influence the intersection between people and space.
