- Superb organisational skills, with the ability to adapt as new requests are made. You must be able to prioritise tasks from multiple sources and to seek support from others when appropriate.
- Good interpersonal skills and an excellent telephone manner will be essential for this role. You must be able to work as part of an administrative team while also working within a team of colleagues from a variety of levels.
