  • Ensure that all assignments are completed to deadline and within budget.
  • Liaise with other departments to ensure that clients requirements are met.
  • Mentor colleagues — reviewing their work and encouraging prompt and high-quality delivery and service.
  • Contribute to the firm’s growth by retaining existing clients and building relationships with prospective clients.
