  • You are highly organised and self-motivated, able to prioritise and juggle a varied and fast-paced workload. We know that when we ask you to do something, you get it done quickly or communicate proactively if priorities need to shift!
  • You are extremely results oriented and keep your focus on how many people apply to the programme (which is critical to how many people we can help get to senior leadership). You always ensure that you spend your time on tasks that get employers to work with us or get individuals to apply.
  • You are able to learn what employers and working parents want. We know that your content responds to the questions they are asking themselves.

  • You bring solid administration and coordination skills to the comms work and are  organised. Because you own your work, we can let you get on with the job and you’ll remind us what needs to get done - we don’t need to follow up with you!
  • You thrive in a dynamic environment and enjoy juggling things on multiple fronts. We know you are in control of your workload and will get things done, or otherwise let us know if we need to drop or change things. 
  • With a flexible and ‘can do’ approach. Things change quickly here and you aren’t fazed by that!
  • You are good at managing upwards and work with a remote team. You tell us what you need from us and remind us when we forget! 
  • You are a team player committed to working collaboratively to achieve results. We are all working for the same thing and we will shift what we do if necessary to support the team goal. You’ll ask for help if needed and offer that help, too.
