We have a great team and are looking to add to it with a positive team player, who sets high personal standards and is adaptable and able to work under pressure. Its a very busy role, and you'll need to be comfortable working in a deadline driven environment where you can juggle multiple activities and prioritise effectively.

We are continually challenging ourselves to do things better, therefore you'll be given the scope and autonomy to be creative and proactive in your approach to coming up with and delivering new solutions and concepts, whilst always considering their impact on time/budget/resource and candidate experience.
