  • Work with Finance and Business Intelligence to develop appropriate models for evaluating and measuring financial performance as needed.

Operations Management

  • Understand overall business operations for each assigned department including business processes, revenue and cost components and the drivers of these measures, seasonality/cyclicality of costs, customer behavior, and profitability.

  • Manage or assist with division initiatives and special projects as needed.

Administration Management

  • Assist with onboarding of new employees into the division, ensuring seamless systems setup as well as providing insight and problem solving.

  • Support recruiting and onboarding efforts for Business Development assistants by identifying talent requirements, refining job descriptions, assisting with recruitment process, and working with Learning & Development to provide new-hire training.

  • Mentor and support Global Client Group assistants in the Americas as well as department administrators, and serve as first point of contact to troubleshoot issues.

  • May serve as line manager for one or more Global Client Group assistants.

Qualifications
