Job Description

We are looking to hear from experienced Project Managers for an Exclusive role in Bristol.

 

About The Company

Our client is a fast growing UK and US-based company, providing big data reputational risk intelligence solutions to large global companies and institutions. The firm is a leader in the reputational risk management/intelligence big data space.

Corporate reputation and trust are a company's most important assets and must be handled carefully. That is especially true today, as corporate leaders operate in a tumultuous global business environment, face an increasingly demanding set of well-informed stakeholders, and grapple with the latest stage of the digital revolution.

The company’s business model and products are based on enabling reputation risk executives in the world's largest companies to make better and more informed decisions. The company’s products transform corporate reputation from the domain of subjective reports and intangible assets, reliant on expensive consulting, into actionable intelligence that empowers and liberates reputation risk executives from point-in-time, lagging indicators of performance, giving them the same speed and confidence in decision making as colleagues using structured business intelligence systems.

The firm employs a team of passionate professionals focused on creating exceptional solutions and experiences for customers. Equally, they have a focus on creating an environment of trust and collaboration that is a fun, flexible and supportive place for the team to thrive, grow and succeed. Successful team members have high levels of passion and personal accountability.
