You know that your team are key to your success and you have a passion for growing and mentoring people and sharing your knowledge broadly.
  • You thrive in a complex environment and you are not scared of change. However, you have a passion for simplification and have actively championed and succeed in consolidating technology and process complexity in your previous roles.
  • Whilst not essential, knowledge and awareness of the hosting industry, creative agencies and development outsourcing would be beneficial.
