  • Who has a can-do attitude, that sets high standards of excellence, but outlines how their team can get there and give them the tools and support to do so.

Creative thinking will help you to come up with innovative solutions that minimise the impact on your team and the business as a whole.
  • Who is a great communicator – You’ll liaise with a variety of people, from entry-level employees to senior management, in a number of different ways – via email, over the phone and in presentations, meetings and one-to-ones.
