Personal attributes

A successful candidate will probably be in the early stages of a career, in which he/she has already demonstrated promise. He/she will be independently minded with a questioning approach towards status quo functioning, and be unafraid to offer constructive but non-dogmatic suggestions of alternative procedures. In this sense, as well as being self-starter, he/she will be a team player, who has the effective functioning of the group, and beyond of the firm, at the centre of his/her concerns. An ability to manage time and competing deadlines will be important, as will an intelligent awareness of current affairs and the opportunities that they may present. Accurate and well-structured writing will be key for the candidate taking on this role.


This is a demanding specification but, for the ambitious candidate, also one offering continuing career progression, including relevant training. Competitive prorated compensation package will also be on offer to the successful candidate.
