·      Financial Operations: You will be expected to understand the fundamentals of business financials including forecasting, promoting great margins and managing Digitas operational processes

  • Both supporting large initiatives and also leading smaller projects independently
  • Setting up projects for success (right team, properly planned, client alignment)
  • Keeping clients and internal teams moving in the same direction
  • Anticipating the needs of your projects, heading off potential pitfalls
  • Removing barriers to success for the team
