Our Associates have at least two (and on average quite a few more) years of experience, and may have post-graduate qualifications like an MBA or a Masters in International Development. Not only do they have impressive academic credentials, they also have an inspiring track record of achievement in and outside of their work.
Throughout the assessment process you will be asked to demonstrate:
- Motivation and persistence: seizing opportunities and the ability to turn ideas into reality, challenging yourself and setting goals, whilst knowing when to compromise, and involve others
- Interpersonal skills: convincing, drawing in and inspiring others, whilst also dealing effectively and sensitively with conflict
- Attitudes and mindsets: retaining high expectations, an open mind and an eagerness to learn and experience new things; being pragmatic, and comfortable with changing situations. Able to articulate your commitment to work in the social enterprise space
- Problem solving: structuring and breaking down complex problems into solvable elements, whilst not losing sight of the big picture; comfort with quantitative analysis and mental arithmetic
We will also be looking for your ability to communicate clearly and persuasively, to listen carefully and to make a mature and professional impression.
