What makes you the perfect candidate?
You are a detail freak, always spotting the small improvements or mistakes. You love to dive deep into some document or (legal) problem but in the end you’re pragmatic and resourceful and you just get things done. You’re comfortable setting your own priorities and you can move things into the sixth gear instantly if needed. You’re confident in your skills and knowledge and you’re not afraid to draw a line. You love direct and honest communication lines to get fast results but you like to always end things on a positive note because why work hard if you can’t also have a little fun?
Must have requirements:
Start: May/June 2018.
Availability: 40 hours per week.
Duration: This is a long-term position. We’ll start with a temporary contract.
Remuneration: Based on experience and knowledge.
