An excellent communicator, you will be able to engage with internal and external stakeholders at all levels, communicating changes in policy and strategies, as well as provide expert advice, guidance, and support on complex issues. 

With experience of project management, you will demonstrate initiative and the ability to manage complex plans, prioritise and co-ordinate resources to deliver priorities within time constraints.
