This includes detailing deliverables, estimating timelines and resource requirements. You will manage the client relationship from start to finish including proposal ideation, content production, and project management.  Working across multiple functions, you will become your client’s main point of contact and will be responsible for ensuring the success of their campaigns through excellent service and communication levels.
