Locate new vendors specialized in Art Outsourcing and expand relationships with our current ones.
Ensure all of them accept, sign and follow our contractual terms and conditions.
Negotiate time and cost effectiveness with vendors, keeping an eye on budget control.
Ensure any documents, links and files related to the tasks are correct and up to date.
Optimize the efficiency of your assigned projects, through proper alignment and constant communication (especially with Art Supervisors and the other Outsourcing Producers).
Positively contribute to the Art Outsourcing department performance, supporting the rest of Producers and Supervisors when needed.
