You will have good analytical skills that enable you to understand the research funding landscape, our capabilities and our uniqueness.  You will have excellent communication and influencing skills and be able to bring diverse groups together. You will be resilient, enjoying managing a diverse workload, have a high degree of organisation and bring a positive attitude to team working.
