The Performance leader will help steer this change, analysing and aligning performance information held by WBC and partner organisations.

They will have demonstrable previous experience of working in a performance-related environment, have the ability to distil complex issues into highlight reports, and the technical ability to prepare presentations for a variety of audiences.
