Responsibilities

You have experience aligning work activities to tight deadlines, whilst maintaining a keen attention to detail. Creative problem solving and lateral thinking have been well-embedded into your workflows for a long time and you don’t shy away from difficult solutions to seemingly-impossible technical problems.

Ideally, you would also be:

  • A proactive team player with a can-do attitude.
  • A quick and autodidact learner and can adapt to any technical challenge thrown at you.
  • Able to work independently towards deadlines, reporting results on a regular basis.
  • Organised, punctual and patient.
