You are a skilled people leader with a capacity to lead a program of continuous improvement. You have high levels of commercial acumen and will contribute to the commercial sustainability of Able. Your experience may have been gained in any of a wide range of people orientated sectors but you relish the opportunity to make a real difference in your work.
