You will relish ownership and accountability and look to proactively drive the business. You will be able to find creative solutions and deal with ambiguity where process does not exist, working with pace and flexibility to ensure your customer comes first. The business has a strong team ethos, so you will have to be a team player, and support your colleagues to ensure success is delivered across the organization.
