If you looking for your next challenge, working on national campaigns with a diverse range of incredibly talented professionals, then this opportunity may be exactly what you are looking for!

  • Documenting project progress - status reports, contact reports etc

This is a role for those who enjoy and thrive in a pressurised environment. It's fast-paced, and you must have the ability to think on your feet, juggling various needs at the same time, problem solve and still ensure that everything is delivered to a perfect standard. You will be:

  • Self-motivated
  • Sociable and good with people
  • Enjoy and thrive on building relationships
  • Strong in both spoken and written word
  • Well-organised with an eye for detail
  • Good at problem-solving
