  • Enjoy organising events such as workshops, seminars and courses including paying attention to the details
  • Communicate well with a range of people, which really means asking lots of questions and listening to the responses
  • Work collaboratively in a team, support other people and create a network of contacts
  • Learn quickly, identify potential problems and find new solutions or ways to improve what we do
