The Role Your main responsibilities will be to successfully manage and retain our already signed deals with Global Brands.

On a day-to-day basis, the role will involve training customers how to use the platform, answering questions and ensuring they are delighted with our platform. The role will also be client facing, where you will be expected to build a trusting relationship with stakeholders within that brand.
