The position requires excellent coordination, communication and research skills. You will need to show leadership and have the ability to manage a small team of staff and liaise with a wide range of different organisations. A highly organised individual and a sound strategic thinker, you will be able to use your initiative to manage multiple projects and be a good team player.
