What you bring

On a personal level, this position requires a strong commitment and ability to make decisions, often in a consensus-driven and also political environment. Furthermore, it requires the ability to be self-motivated, structured and targeted with a high degree of flexibility. You use your empathy and excellent general and IT apprehension to change complex technical challenges and demands into workable solutions.
