  • A team player with great people skills and a good sense of humour who can effectively and efficiently collaborate, building relationships with colleagues throughout the business

  • An analytical mind able to “see” the complexities of procedures and regulations but then simplify issues for others

  • A pragmatic, commercial and creative approach to problem solving and decision-makingHighest standards of ethics and professional integrity
