We expect you to have the requisite knowledge of legislative processes and procedures.

In addition to the expertise outlined above, you also have experience in organisational consultancy and development.

We further expect you to have analytical process and implementation-driven thinking patterns as well as an ability to swiftly identify and understand complex issues.

Your profile further extends to social competence, intercultural communication skills and a capacity for integration.
