  • Supporting the Project Management team internal tasks, such as timeline creation, timesheet reviews and invoicing 
  • Auditing client meetings, following which you will communicate and coordinate action items among your colleagues internally and clients externally.
  • Establishing and supporting positive relationships with internal teams and clients.

Skills & Experience: 

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills (both written and oral) 
  • Ability to read a situation and understand when to go above and beyond for a key client

Bonus points for: 

  • Bilingual 
  • Experience working in an agency environment 
  • Experience using WordPress
  • A Project Management background or education focused on Project Management
