What they are looking for:

  • Tenacious and driven with a proven track record of reaching and exceeding personal targets
  • You'll be a leader by nature, with the ability to inspire and motivate your team on a daily basis
  • You should possess a highly positive outlook, even when challenges present themselves to you
