The ideal Applicant
In addition to possessing the required skills and experience, you must be able to function under consistent high pressure and be deadline driven. You are able to think laterally and can find feasible and secure solutions to apparently impossible problems. Exceptional quality of output and attention to detail are a natural part of your skill set. When confronted with a required outcome, you easily see alternative possible options for achieving the desired result and most often select the best route, advising and making alternative suggestions where these will produce a better long term outcome. You are most likely a geek at heart and possibly even a bit introverted. Ethical considerations and confidentiality are concepts which come naturally to you. You would like to make a meaningful contribution in a non-corporate environment and can work efficiently on your own as well as in a team
