Able to show empathy, listen actively and express ideas and facts in a clear and confident manner both verbally and non-verbally. This includes reporting, presentation skills, meeting management and facilitation.

Change communications: work with Internal Communications to ensure relevant programme change communications and materials are designed and produced in a timely manner, aligned to broader comms messages. Harness different comms/engagement levers; innovative approaches are encouraged.
