You will verify whether those expenses stay in line with the clients' agreements and firm guidelines. If needed, you will address inconsistencies to the partners and senior partners and propose solutions.
You will build long-term relationships with many stakeholders and act as an expert helping consultants think strategically through their budget plans and partner with them on long-term client programs.
