  • Assisting the team on new business ventures and projects and eventually independently running those projects
  • Tracking client accounts and activity on those accounts in order to assist the sales teams in improving ROI
  • Specializing in a particular area of the business, really developing foundation skills to a higher level, and becoming an 'expert' in that field

This is an ideal environment for someone who wants to be part of an ambitious and growing business, has a passion for best practice, and a genuine interest in compliance and all things contract!
