  • Providing excellent customer service to the sales team, leveraging case management software to implement changes and respond to queries.

Individual responsibilities may include:
  • Spending an initial period learning end to end systems and processes to develop the knowledge required to perform a management role.
  • Participating in cross-functional teams within MA on system enhancement initiatives or new business acquisitions as needed.
  • Ensuring that controls are in place, processes are followed, service levels and deadlines are met.
