Not Uniform. Every country is unique. Yellow Card’s capabilities and position in each market are distinct. The individuals serving in Operations Manager and Country Manager roles have different backgrounds and skill sets.Therefore although some duties are consistent across the continent while others will vary.

Duties may be shared. As the company grows in some markets the duties might be shared with an external consultant or second operations manager.
