A bit about you…

You'll also be resilient and comfortable engaging with stakeholders at all levels, both verbally and written. Delivering on a mission as bold as ours isn’t always easy. You will enjoy working in an innovative, fun, and engaging way. As an experienced finance professional, you’ll be able to demonstrate creativity and innovative solutions to challenges and issues, whilst working with others as part of a team in a collaborative, inclusive way.
