  • A genuine passion for creating an inclusive attraction strategy, interview process and work environment for diverse talent.
  • Razor sharp attention to detail.
  • A preference to base your decisions on data.
  • A strong drive to solve problems for the good of the whole team.
  • Heaps of resourcefulness, initiative and a get it done attitude.

  • Communication skills that would make your English teacher proud.
