  • Demonstrated resilience, problem solving techniques and flexibility
  • Great communication and people skills
  • An outgoing, enthusiastic and motivated attitude
  • Excellent time management and organisational skills
  • Demonstrated experience in managing challenging people situations
  • Demonstrated experience in working collaboratively with community agencies
  • An understanding of working within the context of a faith-based NGO
  • Experience in working with people from differing socio-economic backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities
  • Competent with Microsoft Office applications and have excellent report writing and written communication skills.
