You'll take real ownership and pride in what you do. Along the way, you'll be comfortable developing strong relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders: our research teams, our local partners, our UK project and field coordinators, etc.

Ideally, this would include some exposure to cost management and finance management (e.g., logging new briefs, keeping track of invoicing schedules, etc.). You'll be used to balancing on-going commitments and ad-hoc requests.

 

* High levels of basic skills: fluent in PowerPoint, Excel, GoogleDocs/GoogleDrive and Word (including formatting, formulas, etc.).
