    Responsibilities

    Our clients come to us to communicate more effectively on challenging communication issues, including corporate reputation and branding; public affairs and issue advocacy; new product launches and repositioning. We deliver strategic counsel based on rigorous research to help them achieve their business objectives.

    The project coordinator will work with project teams to help us deliver better outcomes and client experiences by making us more efficient and more effective in our operations.

     

    Process development and implementation

     

    We want the project coordinator to work with our current project manager to continue reviewing our existing project-related processes to develop a roadmap for refining, improving or replacing them. For example:

    • How can we most efficiently build, track, coordinate, and communicate evolving project timelines?
    • How do we most effectively support clients and project teams with travel and logistics management? And how can we streamline the process as we go?
    • How can we build and implement best practices across the different types of project work we complete and create scalable structures to support our growth

    • Effectively communicating with team members, clients, and other stakeholders
    • Acting as the primary connection point with our internal field management, media, finance, and intern teams to manage project needs

    Best practices and continuous improvement

     

    Our agency is focused on constantly improving how we operate and building our knowledge base as a source of competitive advantage.  The PC will play a vital role in this effort by:

    • Identifying best practices and opportunities for project teams to improve their effectiveness and efficiency.  
    • Managing project debriefs to identify lessons and content that can be applied to future clients and projects.

    • Proficiency with project management technologies and tools to support effectiveness
    • Strong ability to communicate with, motivate and influence varied stakeholders; to manage conflict, and to build consensus
