To succeed, you’ll need to be solution focused and outcome driven, with a firm but inclusive, open and encouraging management style, lots of tact and diplomacy and the ability to lead by example.

Adept at managing conflicting demands and priorities, motivating staff and delegating work also comes naturally to you. And, if you have a relevant professional qualification to go with your impressive experience, even better.
