Job Description

High-Impact Role

Excellence matters to us. We work tirelessly to delight our clients, build outstanding engagement procedures, deliver head-turning thought leadership in our publishing and presenting, and make our own employees feel appreciated and noticed. As our client service professionals are constantly two feet in taking care of clients, we need a proactive professional to serve a team of internal clients by supporting key internal initiatives.

The successful candidate will be proactive, organized, comfortable working with different personalities, and able to execute in a fast-paced, judgment-rich environment. We are a culture that values high attention to detail, a bias toward action over talking, strong analytical reasoning, and exceptional judgment.
