Major Challenges

A good understanding of our operational capacities, legal issues, reputation risks and an ability to identity areas of possible problems is required to ensure CTLA does not sign up to duties it cannot perform.

A strong sense of initiative and pro-activeness is required to manage different matters simultaneously.

Workload volume is generally fluctuating but can result in significant pressure on the jobholder's time management, who will have to exhibit excellent time management and prioritisation skills.

A flexible approach is required at all times.

Role Dimensions

Regular contact will be maintained with a very wide variety of both internal and external customers. The diversity of both customers and location requires the jobholder to be flexible, proactive and up to date on current market standards and practices.
