Expanding in more specifics:

  • Energetic, transparent, flexible and structured in approach and mannerism.
  • Respectful in engagement, with a strong sense of urgency to deliver value.
  • Relentless in ensuring a clear understanding of what measurable success looks like. Objectives and key-result expectations are often communicated early, with indicators measured and reviewed weekly.
  • Comfortable diving into spreadsheets, pivots and modernised ETL solutions to analyse business data.
  • Hands-on in developing talent who know how to celebrate success, learn from mistakes, speak the different languages within the business, and lead by example.
  • Continually humble to express weakness backed by a drive and curiosity to learn, develop and advance.
  • Calm under pressure while remaining true to commitments.
  • Keen to constructively challenge and chip in ideas on how we can be better, stronger and faster.
