  • Experience working in a complex organisation, including drafting and presenting papers at Executive and Board level, achieving corporate and commercial outcomes and driving change across functional/accountability areas, and using judgement and problem-solving to balance short- interest and long-term outcomes.
  • Experience of tackling challenging issues, with multiple differing views across organisations to find solutions.
  • Experience of development of, and implementation of, delivery plans that cut across multiple functions. Leading on resolving competing priorities and tensions across teams and with senior leaders while maintaining pace and progress.
  • Experience of building and leading brilliant teams through your ability to coach, inspire, and empower people. You will position yourself as a role model and motivate expert teams while working fluidly across a large, geographically dispersed organisation.
  • Proven track record of organising teams which deliver high quality, strategically value-added outputs to agreed and sometimes tight deadlines. You will have experience of working in, alongside or overseeing governance and legal teams, and be aware of the expectations and pressures placed upon these teams, and have a track record of developing strategies for delivering against these.
  • Experience working with a range of senior stakeholders as a trusted adviser. An ability to develop and enhance excellent relationships with a diverse range of senior level internal and external stakeholders, you will have experience in creating connections and driving shared responsibilities.
  • Proven track record of measuring and managing performance of services to ensure continuous quality. Good experience of budgetary management techniques, including commercial contract and procurement to drive value for money.
  • Experience of operating in and driving a performance management culture.
  • Passion for, experience in, and understanding of the communities we serve and the environment we operate in.
