Jana Kaiser

Senior Consultant – Strategy & Consulting, REWE Group

My Job as Inhouse Consultant:

I started working as a consultant at REWE about one year ago with an exciting project which connects conceptual and operational elements and includes various departments of our company. Within the project we work together as a team with our internal customers and external agencies developing and implementing future-oriented concepts. My main focus hereby is the area of marketing and market research.

My daily challenges:

The crucial factors for project success are effective communication and passion for the common goal within all participating departments of the company. The main challenge hereby is to team the different departments in order to identify their interests as well as possible conflicts and to address them appropriately. This requires constant motivation within the departments for the common goal as well as having the big picture in mind.

Why I like to work as Inhouse Consultant:

The variety of projects within all areas of the REWE Group as well as the collaboration with different departments and people characterize my work as a consultant at REWE. Consistently dealing with new topics and tasks brings a lot of diversity to my everyday working life. Furthermore our team is very diverse with each person contributing their personality and experience – this is what I highly appreciate in our team.

What I like most about being an Inhouse Consultant:

At REWE we as consultants develop concepts and support their implementation – a combination which I like a lot. In that way I constantly learn new things and gain a better understanding for those topics that really matter for the success of REWE.

My life before joining the Inhouse Consultancy:

As a research assistant during my Master Studies in International Business at TH Köln, I intensively analyzed the food retailing industry in terms of sustainability. Within my internship at the strategy department at REWE I got to know the Inhouse Consultancy and soon realized that the multifaceted work as a consultant at REWE connects all aspects that are appealing to me.

What I like to do in my spare time:

In my spare time I volunteer at my local church as part of the leadership team. Apart from that I like exploring new cities and countries, new routes in the climbing gym or with my snowboard on a slope.
