  • Organised, strong analytical skills, strategically focused, detail-oriented, and able to deal with ambiguity in a constantly evolving environment.
  • Ability to work autonomously and as part of a team. Natural curiosity for improving things and proactively taking initiative.

Desirable:

  • Previous exposure working with senior business stakeholders on budgets and supporting strategic decision making and driving change.
