They need to be great multi-taskers, be calm under pressure and have the ability to fit in well with an established team.

This is a busy role covering a wide range of activities. The key to success in the role will be strong organisational skills so that priorities can be managed well, with a smile.

You will need:

  • Strong computer and word-processing skills

  • Ability to connect with a broad range of people
  • A can-do attitude with a willingness to go beyond and do whatever needs doing
