Reporting into the Commercial Director, you will be involved in weekly meetings on how you can maintain existing frameworks as well as continuing to grow to maximum success. Some of your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Reinforcing positive and strong leadership in the training, development, Performance development reviews and everyday management duties of the team.
