About You

Each stage requires you to use a variety of MS tools including Word, Excel and PowerPoint so it is important that you are confident with these applications.

Time management, efficiency and the ability to manage deadlines and work with minimal supervision is essential, so is team work. You will have to cope with a substantial amount of responsibility, remain calm under sometimes severe pressure.

You'll need to have very strong written and verbal communication skills, paired with a keen eye for detail. Prior experience in requirements gathering and delivering presentations is a plus but not essential.
