Excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills accompanied with excellent organisational skills with the ability to work on your own initiative, co-ordinate the activity of the team and respond confidently to multiple project deadlines would be essential to the role.

You will understand the legal and best practice standards relevant to design and production, with the ability to integrate creativity and innovation into the working environment.
