We’re looking for people with potential

Our ultimate aspiration is that you’ll reach a senior leadership position. So we’re looking for people who are showing the early signs of leadership. To get there you’ll need both the ambition and commitment to fulfil your potential. Key signs of early leadership for us are…

  • Self-awareness:

You’ll understand yourself and the impact you have on those around you. For us, self-reflection and seeking feedback from others are the two most important activities you can do to develop yourself self-awareness.

  • Development:

You’ll be ambitious about your growth and development. To develop yourself and fulfil your potential you’ll already be put in the extra effort that leads to higher achievement.

  • Collaboration:

You’ll seek to work with others to achieve more than you could alone. To do this successfully you will invest time in building relationships, handle conflict in a constructive manner and be happy to share control.
