With your well-developed marketing skills and demonstrated experience engaging audiences through strategic campaigns, you will be confident in a range of tasks, including market research, event management and high-level stakeholder engagement. Working in a team environment, you will have excellent time management skills, communication skills and attention to detail.

Candidates must have a tertiary qualification in communications or marketing OR equivalent work experience and at least two years' work experience in a similar role.
