About the role

You will have a high degree of flexibility which comes with the opportunity to shape the role as the company grows. This role will not suit purists – you will need to understand when process leads to greater efficiencies and when it impedes progress, as well as possessing the ability to explain the ‘why’ in order to drive adoption and motivation. You understand that people, communication and collaboration are more important than methodology and you evangelise frameworks over process. You are a fan of, and can demonstrate experience in, continuous improvement.
Desired Skills and Experience
This role will best suit an individual who is well organised, pragmatic, with great attention to detail and a problem-solving mindset. This role is essential to the success of a cross-functional team and therefore requires the ability to build strong relationships and work with multiple teams.
A little bit more about You
