What you’ll need to succeed

    • Previous experience with line managing medium sized teams (5-7 reports) and enjoying growing people to reach their potential
    • Keen eye for identifying stakeholder pain points and business opportunities, comfortable with saying no to executive pet projects

Our biggest challenge right now
