Your role involves working in a team environment. You may be part of a larger team on complex assignments and you may be asked to lead work certain work streams on less complex engagements.
Build and sustain relationships with client management team members for the benefit of the Firm as well as acting as an ambassador and role model for the Firm.
Monitor and deliver high quality service to clients (both internal and external). You will need to be able to manage their own time, plan and organise work tasks, monitor progress and meet deadlines. Individuals will be proficient at managing multiple priorities.
