  • You will take ownership of weekly client calls to establish a close working relationship with your primary client contacts. Ensure all issues are tackled head-on with clients at the earliest opportunity.
  • You will proactively own the management of fees and billing across your portfolio. This should include ensuring timely billing, agreeing on scope work and fees, and managing recovery rates on your client projects. You will be accountable for the month-end WIP and provision results, and able to explain and justify the financial position of each of your clients.
  • You must actively own the risk management across your portfolio to ensure that client take-on procedures are completed, engagement letters are in place, and all department policies are followed to ensure compliance with internal risk protocols. Independently liaising with legal and risk management teams where necessary.
  • You will actively participate in the recruitment and induction of new joiners, including collation and review of CVs, holding interviews, providing feedback, and liaising with both internal and external recruitment teams.
  • You will own certain areas of team meeting agendas regularly and run team meetings where needed.
  • You will build a strong network of contacts across global firms.
  • You will own and drive improvement projects within the department, utilising junior staff to deliver quality improvements to improve service offerings, efficiencies, or practicalities of the day-to-day running of the wider team.
  • You will work with the department leadership to drive the pipeline of opportunities through the proposal stage to onboarding new clients. Take ownership of proposal pricing collation, proposal documentation, pitch content and participation, as well as managing the onboarding of new client wins.
