Positive, flexible and adaptable with a ‘can-do’ attitude to overcoming challenges (that are not always technical).  Enthusiastic and responsive when working within a team; determining a course of action; and, focusing effort to deliver this.

Conscientious and diligent towards their work, with a strong positive work ethic, so that their team feels confident that they can be entrusted with greater ownership and accountability for work.

Responsive and timely, respecting and appreciating the priorities and concerns of others, while being conscious of the effort that the team is making in terms of supporting the individual’s learning and development.

Outstanding attention to detail, with the ability to work pro-actively, independently and respond flexibly to changing priorities

Capability

Good all round interpersonal skills, with an ability to analyse problems and exercise good judgement finding effective solutions.

An articulate and sincere communicator – not necessarily the loudest or most forthright – with the ability to empathise with others and use this to communicate effectively.

Creative, thorough, with excellent attention to detail and an understanding of the importance of quality.

Results-focussed, using technology as a means to an end, as opposed to an end in itself.
