  • The ability to juggle multiple tasks and competing priorities whilst delivering quality and timely content.
  • Someone that loves a fast-paced, ever-changing environment and that can bring order and efficiency amongst the chaos.
  • While we won’t be taking any blood samples, we’d love to see some Startup DNA – you will need to be flexible, pragmatic, strategic, tenacious, and take ownership of deliverables and outcomes – ya gotta have hustle!
  • You’ll have incredible organisational skills and attention to detail and be able to balance the big picture with short term needs/initiatives
