  • Attending live events to manage and supervise finished projects where applicable
  • Updating clients and stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of the project
  • Managing and producing regular reports, ensuring the information is timely, accurate and transparent
  • Holding regular delivery team meetings to monitor progress, including project debriefs
  • Measuring KPIs for the project and suggesting new ways of working
  • Writing role briefs
