    • Actively participate in regular RM status meetings to update peers and managers on fulfillment of requests, escalate challenges and support needs and raise broader questions about talent, process or change management to continue to help grow and improve our offering
    • Allocate appropriate resources to work and determine resourcing gaps and appropriate solutions (freelancing vs full-time hires)

Preferred Qualifications:

    • Exceptional communications skills – you know how to synthesize information per audience and you’re comfortable escalating or following up with stakeholders of varying levels, expertise and priorities via email or in-person/on-camera
    • Personal character and instincts that consistently demonstrate strong work ethic, empathy and proactive and rationale thinking/problem-solving
