Job Description for Relationship Manager

Relationship managers, in essence, are members of a company who are assigned to communicating with certain entities outside or inside of the company. There are several types of relationship managers, which mainly differ in terms of who they deal with: Relationship managers can communicate with other businesses, clients, customers, vendors, communities, etc. Relationship managers' main job duty is to make sure that adequate communication is maintained with these entities. Relationship managers who deal with clients and customers can explain what the company does, what ethics the company is bound by, and why the client should choose this company over any competitors. Relationship managers will typically work within a company in customer service or often as part of a sales department. They are able to explain customers' and clients' needs and what steps should be taken in order to fulfill those needs, as well as any legal boundaries that exist between the company and outside entities such as contractual obligations and legal restrictions. As such, relationship managers are tasked with keeping up with communications involving the company and its clients, vendors, etc. as a whole, or can focus on one or several specific clients or vendors. Ultimately, they work to ensure that client relationships are as fluid and harmonious as possible while adhering to their company's guidelines and standards. (Copyright 2018
