  • Highly developed organizational skills, with the ability to professionally handle multiple stakeholder communications, networks, and channels, whilst prioritizing different tasks 
  • An enthusiastic, motivated approach with a willingness to support other members of the team when required, and applying initiative and common sense to problem-solve
  • Excellent communication skills, with an ability to present information to a variety of stakeholders, build effective relationships, and use them to influence and negotiate diplomatically 
  • Ability to gather and analyze data to inform activity and make effective evidence-based decisions that support wider organizational goals 
  • A high degree of understanding of media relations best practice and current trends, and the ability to apply this to everyday working
