Your typical week 

It’s Monday morning and you’re coming back to the office all refreshed from a great week-end. The week starts with our team meeting, where everyone reflects on the learnings of the past week and shares intentions for the coming one. This creates a space for alignment, awareness and enthusiasm before stepping into the new week and allows everyone to get the latest updates from different departments while hearing about the organization’s growth.  

During the week, you can expect a combination of client-facing tasks and research missions. You are responsible for coordinating client projects from beginning to end, all the while guiding a team of enthusiastic analysts to support you along the way.  

The week closes off on Friday 5pm with our gratitude award. This is the time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the week and most importantly to share what we’re grateful for.
