What do associate consultants do?

Associate consultants are part of Infor Professional Services. They create solutions to address our customers’ needs. Over 60,000 customers globally rely on Infor to help overcome market disruptions and achieve business-wide digital transformations. With exposure to cloud solutions based on Infor’s ERP systems, associate consultants will learn and practice implementation methodology, consulting skills, and industry business practices.

“Infor's Early Talent Program is not offering just a job with training; it’s a transformative journey,” says Arnold Wong, director of strategy & transformation for APAC Global Professional Services. “If you have a passion for technology and a drive for excellence, this is the place for you. Our unique program will provide the tools, mentorship, and hands-on experience you need to excel at solution consulting. Let's build a brighter future together."

Growing professionally

While universities prepare young people for the professional world, learning and developing skills is a lifelong journey, and building a strong foundation early is essential.

A supportive culture

While cool office perks and benefits help make a company culture, being in an environment where you can thrive, grow, and feel empowered makes a company culture different.

“My experience with Infor’s culture has been incredibly positive,” says Mai Kato in Tokyo. “The strong emphasis on innovation encourages employees to bring forward their ideas. I’ve felt a sense of inclusivity and support, with various employee resource groups and team-building activities that foster a strong sense of community.”
