  • The confidence to try new things, and a passion for big ideas and storytelling
  • Diligence to hit deadlines, open to feedback and offer suggestions to streamline and improve team processes.
  • The ability to juggle multiple tasks and competing priorities whilst delivering quality and timely content.
  • Someone that loves a fast-paced, ever-changing environment and that can bring clarity and efficiency amongst the chaos.
  • You’ll have incredible organisational skills and attention to detail and be able to balance the big picture with short term needs / initiatives
  • While we won’t be taking any blood samples, we’d love to see some Startup DNA – you will need to be flexible, pragmatic, strategic, tenacious, and take ownership of deliverables and outcomes – ya gotta have hustle!
