The position demands someone who

  • is self-directed, flexible and calm under pressure, creative, a strong communicator, and a problem-solver.

  • can be discrete and respects confidentiality.

Responsibilities range from web design/development to reception planning, survey or ballot development/distribution/analysis, and confidential and thoughtful document management.
