  • An ability to deliver under pressure as part of a team managing complex projects and relationships with multiple stakeholders
  • Strong communications skills – both verbal and written
  • An ability to work autonomously and as part of a team
  • Enthusiasm to learn and develop
  • Strong IT skills, including knowledge of social media

Ideally, but not essentially, you’ll also have:
