You should have strong analytical skills, an ability to generate energy and excitement about change, the ability to work to tight deadlines and a strong drive for personal and professional development. But above all, it’s your excellent interpersonal skills that will help you stand out – we’re looking for someone with the ability to challenge how we work as an organisation in sensitive and constructive ways, and experience of successfully influencing senior stakeholders within a complex organisation.
