  • You will develop and maintain a close relationship with the market’s top practitioners
  • You will be comfortable writing succinct copy in a timely manner 
  • You will use data to identify key trends and drivers of activity and report on them in a creative and engaging way
  • You will attend online and in-person industry events to conduct exclusive interviews and build on your sourcing network

 
Remuneration will reflect the applicant’s level of experience.  
 
Skills required:
