You will have a proven leadership style that fosters collaboration, inclusiveness and motivates a team of professional and committed staff. High level emotional intelligence, interpersonal and communication skills will be essential along with successful experience in developing and nurturing key stakeholder and community networks and partnerships to support the success of the organisation.
