    Position summary

    s, managing teams, and leading meetings, status calls, and planning and cadence meetings. You will analyse and mitigate risks, manage finances, make sure the team has the right skills, then plan and delegate activity to hit deadlines, deliver on SLAs, and generally delight our clients. Of course, plans often evolve as a project unfolds, so you'll need to practice continuous structural thinking and take ownership for value delivery, not just task scheduling.

    But as important as planning and organisation are, communication is 90% of the job. You're the single point of contact with the client, partners, and all stakeholders, supporting them and ensuring they get what they need. You're also the bridge to every other team on the project, including both technical and account roles. The result is an exciting multicultural, often multilingual environment. Bottom line: You need to like interactions with other people and know how to be kind and empathetic but also assertive - and handle customer change requests with diplomacy.

    You're going to be meeting a lot of people, networking, and forging relationships. Our "one team with the customer" concept means you'll develop especially strong partnerships with the client and elsewhere. Some projects or clients even involve "embedding" with the client at their location. This puts more visibility on you personally, but it also gives you more opportunity to add value to the relationship. This is one of the things Kyndryls love about working here. It's a great way to hone your service and people skills, and it lays the groundwork for career growth both laterally and vertically.
