You'll work closely with multi disciplinary teams and so you'll need to demonstrate experience of managing projects and negotiations with third party suppliers.

You'll probably possess at least 5 years' pqe to have gained the knowledge required to undertake this role You'll need to be confident and professional, and have exceptional communication skills. Whilst you'll be part of a wider team, you'll also need to work under your own initiative, under pressure and to tight timescales, and so you'll need excellent organisational skills.

We offer a very competitive salary, and bonus scheme, commensurate with skills and experience, a healthy company pension scheme, permanent health insurance and life assurance.
