  • You're highly credible and able to build strong partnerships with management teams who have limited tolerance for 'HR speak'

  • You use data and insight to ensure we're solving the right problems and making progress with the right solutions
  • You believe in doing things right first time every time
  • You're willing to roll up your sleeves and get involved in the details sometimes, rather than waiting for others to do it for you
