At Slalom, we work to help our clients succeed. We work with them to achieve their objectives and set their sights on the realm of the possible. The Client Service Lead is the nexus of this work. As a CSL, you’ll spend your days at our clients’ sites – understanding their environments & industry, recognizing their opportunities & constraints, delivering on client projects, overseeing our delivery work, developing & implementing strategies that marry Slalom capabilities and client needs, and managing the overall business & operations of a given portfolio. 

Core responsibilities include:

  • Business Management: As a leader of a portfolio, client service leaders are a business builder responsible for ensuring the profitability and stability of the portfolio, managing risk, and ensuring the long-term viability of the business. A client service leader is responsible for an annual portfolio of $3-5MM that is typically industry aligned.
  • Relentless Focus on Teams: Another of Slalom’s pillars is Relentless Focus on Teams. As an account leader, you’ll have the opportunity to shape and lead delivery teams at the client sites – aiding in the development of careers and shaping high performing individuals into high performing teams. You’ll also have the ability to shape who joins Slalom in the future through engagement in the recruiting process.
  • Ambassador of Values: As a leader in the market, the client leader is a constant ambassador of Slalom’s core values and ensures we exemplify our values in our delivery and interactions with clients, recruits, and the overall market.

Our Values

In his first week at Slalom, a founding member jotted down a list of beliefs that were most important to him, professionally and personally. There must be something said for the fact that, these beliefs still make up Slalom’s core values. 

Do what is right, always; Focus on outcomes; Fuel growth and innovation; Take ownership. Get it done; Build and shape a better future; Inspire passion and adventure; Celebrate authenticity; Drive connection and teamwork; Stay humble and curious; Smile.

What keeps us here?

It’s tricky to describe our culture as it’s something we want you to help shape. Our vision is to enable a world in which everyone loves their work and life. We believe in having a diverse and inclusive community of Slalomers, encouraging everyone to bring their authentic selves to work. We make a big effort to bring everyone together and get to know each other professionally in our work, as well as casually with events like “themed retros”, “weekly wind-downs” and trivia nights.

Organic growth has landed us in over 39 markets across the globe with over 8,000 individuals who call Slalom their career-home. Here in Australia, we would love to consider you one of our next great additions to the client service leadership team, based in Melbourne or Sydney.
