Who we are looking for?

  • a people person: someone who thrives meeting new people and making new contacts daily. This role requires a lot of presenting both internally and externally – so somebody who is comfortable addressing groups.
  • a project manager: ideally you also will enjoy multitasking. This role works across many different accounts and projects, so organisation and time management skills are crucial.
