We are looking for an individual who is collaborative and communicative both internally and externally, and someone who always delivers what they say they will. You’ll embrace change, and help us to bring our team with us. You’ll thrive in a fast-paced environment, while also bringing order and focus to complex situations. You will embody our culture and continue to support and embed this across the organisation. You’ll guide the organisation as we continually change and evolve - growing and extending our impact. You will have outstanding organisational and leadership abilities - a demonstrable passion and commitment for continuous improvement and for human motivation and empathy. In addition, you will be excellent at building relationships across teams and you will have the ability to create trust.
