Team and Role

Behavioural competencies

In addition to a good technical grounding, you will:

•           Have good communication skills;

•           Be a team player with a ‘can do’ attitude;

•           Have drive, enthusiasm and ambition; and

•           Be commercially focused.

You will also be confident working independently as well as working within a team and be committed to working in Bristol.

Please note we use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required.  However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil this kind of work.

Every enquiry and application is treated in the strictest of confidence. Appointments are arranged to suit the candidate, in or out of working hours.
