You understand the big picture of the business environment and able to identify when and where intervention and process improvements need to occur to build an integrated system to support the programs of the OCR.  You can deliver on expectations and create a positive and productive environment that influences the team and the role's outcomes.

You are extremely organised in your planning, organising and multi-tasking – your team has relied on you to successfully deliver to meet the team's objectives. You keep your finger on the pulse of your work.
