Global Market Intelligence Consultant - Transportation

Alcoa

Date: 03/19/2019

Location: Pittsburgh

GMI – The Global Market Intelligence Team is a fast-paced group of global consultants who are accountable for providing in-depth market assessments for all industrial markets that impact Alcoa’s supply chain, directly or indirectly. These assessments are used to develop Alcoa Procurement’s sourcing strategies and help guide critical business decisions.

The GMI consultant role is the start of a rewarding, challenging, and highly flexible career at Alcoa. The GMI team is a natural starting point because of its unique exposure to Alcoa’s critical supply chain, business units, and the vast number of economic, political, environmental, and legal factors that impact the commodity markets in which we transact.  Our expectation is that after a 2-3 year experience as a Consultant, team members will be well-positioned to pursue expanded positions within Alcoa’s procurement sourcing organization, or branch out into other exciting groups focused on business strategy, marketing, or finance.
